If you're not 100% paleo, then you have to make this recipe with the frosting! HAVE TO! The frosting truly encompasses the decadency of this dish! It truly is the icing on the cake! Honestly, the only reason why the frosting isn't paleo is because it's made with whey protein. If you use a paleo protein powder in lieu of the whey, than this recipe can be 100% paleo friendly! I'll leave that up to you! Store the brownies in the refrigerator until serving time. They are best served cold with a glass of cashew milk or a cup of tea! Enjoy!
