Gluten Free Vegan Maple Brownie Bars

Gluten Free Vegan Maple Brownie Bars

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle-Rachelle Himmelman

Omigosh, I have been having a hankering lately for a naughty maple bar donut and brownies all at the same time, knowing that I cannot have that wheat donut, I decided I better come up with an alternative quickly to curb my cravings, and that I did.  Just look at that masterpiece up there!
A Gluten Free Vegan Maple Brownie Bar to be exact, I made a blondie type brownie with a maple frosting. I went to pick up my daughter from school and when she got into the car she says "Mom what have you been baking, it smells like maple." Yes maple brownie bars, just enough to satisfy any cravings that I had.  Enjoy!
