How you’ll make these no bake brookies:

To begin, we’ll start off by making the brownie layer. The brownie layer is similar to a moist, chocolate shortbread consistency. In a small mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup, melted coconut oil and vanilla. In a shallow 8″x8″ brownie tin, place a layer of parchment paper. Add the brownie layer to the pan, pressing down into the parchment paper until you have a mostly flat, even layer of brownies. Freeze this while you work on the cookie layer.

In another mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, vanilla, maple syrup, almond butter, solid coconut oil and chocolate chunks. Once the brownie pan has been in the freezer for 10 minutes, remove and add the cookie layer on top. Press into the pan until the top layer is also flat and evenly covering the brownies. Refrigerate the pan of brookies for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, remove from the refrigerator and use the parchment paper to lift the brookies from the pan. The brookies will be hard, so use a sharp knife to slice them into squares.
