These Halloween Brownies scare me a little bit.

Not because they’re super spooky or anything, it would take more than just chocolate and frosting snakes to scare me. I’m a tough cookie. It’s just that I honestly cannot believe we are nearing the end of October, and Christmas is lurking just around the corner. Time is flying by, and I sometimes wish I could press pause and make it slow down just a little bit, even if just to enjoy a slice of my halloween brownie without feeling like there are a million things going on!

I’ve already accepted that fall is here and am fully embracing pumpkin season – have you seen my pumpkin spice latte yet, exclusive to newsletter subscribers? – and am loving all the extra layers of clothing at the moment as my black trench coat has become my new best friend. But is it too much to ask to slow time for just a little bit? I don’t think so.

Still waiting on my time-control powers, but in the meantime I’ll just sit here and enjoy my soft and chocolatey halloween brownies.

I made these brownies more cake-y than fudge-y, going against my normal obsession with gooey fudge-ness, but I figured I’d change it up a bit for those of you who prefer it so. If you do want it more fudge-like, bake for a bit less time until just baked through.

These halloween brownies are gluten free, grain free, and refined sugar free. They’re not vegan, and I haven’t tested them using chia or flax eggs but if you do then please let me know, or if you would like me to make such a version just leave a comment and I’ll get working on it.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut, rapadura or brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup rapeseed oil
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1½ tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 1 tablespoons cacao powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 eggs
Green Frosting
  • 4 tablespoons cashew, macadamia or blanched almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoons wheatgrass (or natural food colouring)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
To Decorate
  • Orange zest
  • Chocolate dirt*
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC / 350ºF and line a brownie tray with baking paper.
  2. Add the sugar, oil, milk and chocolate into a large saucepan and melt on medium heat, stirring frequently, until combined and smooth.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the flours, baking powder, vanilla, cacao, and salt.
  4. Let cool for a few minutes and then stir in the eggs one at a time, mixing to combine.
  5. Pour into the baking tin, smooth out the top by tapping the tray on a flat surface or using a spatula, and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Let cool completely and make your frosting by whisking all the ingredients together until combined.
  8. Once brownies are completely cool, decorate by spreading over ⅔ of the frosting and top with the chocolate dirt. Use the remaining ⅓ of the frosting to pipe on the "snakes" and finish with a sprinkling of orange zest.
  9. Slice into 16 brownies and serve.
Notes
*For the chocolate dirt, simply blend 125g chocolate biscuits until coarse then mix with 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil.

  • This year is really flying by and it scares me too. But damn these look so good! And I just love the Halloween twist you’ve put on them.

    Hey! I love your blog, but do you think you could put the calorie count with some of these recepies? I am trying to lose weight and it would really help to know the calories!! 😉 thanks!!

    • Hi Etessa! I don’t usually include calorie count as it varies depending on the brand that people use for each ingredient. According to my calculations, the each slice of brownie with frosting and decorations comes to about 175 calories, with 13.2g of fat, 16.2g of carbs, and 3.6g of protein. Hope this helps! x
