Instructions
Making Brownies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F; grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

  2. In a food processor, combine avocados, maple syrup and coconut sugar;
    blend until smooth. Add eggs; pulse to blend. Add cacao, Youtheory® Collagen Powder,
    almond flour, 
    baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla and instant coffee (if using);
    blend until 
    well combined and smooth. Add chocolate chips and swirl in with a spatula.

  3. Transfer batter to baking pan, spreading evenly. Bake until just set in the middle, 25 to
    30 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack, then cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Making Frosting:
  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine all ingredients. Start with 2 Tbsp. maple
    syrup. Blend until smooth. Taste and add more maple syrup, if needed. (Yield: About 1 cup)

  2. When brownies are thoroughly chilled, spread frosting on top. Sprinkle with a topping, if
    desired, then cut into 12 bars and serve. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
