Gluten free Vegan Peanut Butter Brownie with Peanut Butter Frosting

Gluten free Vegan Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

This is a perfect dessert for Labor Day weekend, make it ahead of time and refrigerate until your ready to go.  I find these brownies are very, very good cold, I mean they are good both ways for sure but I REALLY like them cold.  I will be making these again after the holiday as well for the kids and
husband to have in their lunches.  I find these brownies are a great traveling dessert as they don't crumble and the frosting does not become to sticky.  Enjoy!
