Brownies with Almond Butter Greek Yogurt Frosting

as a part of the StonyField clean plate blogger program, I was given products in this post in exchange for a post. Opinions are 100% my own. 
I'm always up for spicing up a traditional recipe. Brownies, so simple and tasty, could always use a new spin on them.
I couldn't help myself from tasting this frosting as I whipped it up over the weekend. The vanilla Stonyfield Grassfed Greek yogurt paired so nicely with the Almond Butter, so creamy and a lovely topping to the chocolatey goodness of the brownie.

Gluten Free Brownies with ALmond butter greek yogurt frosting

Directions
Bake your brownies according whatever box or recipe you love use! I happened to have a box of a Gluten Free mix in my cabinet so I just whipped that up, baked it, and let it cool slightly.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix Greek yogurt and almond butter together. Blend with a stand mixer or hand mixer for about 1 minute.
  • Next, add the cream cheese and maple syrup and beat for another 2 minutes until creamy. I ended up putting another tablespoon of cream cheese in mine, if you feel its not creamy enough after the 2 initial tablespoons, add more.
  • Then, add the vanilla extract and beat again till smooth.
  • Taste the frosting and add more maple syrup or vanilla if desired.
  • Let it set in the fridge for about 30 minutes till stiff
  • Spoon and spread over cooled brownies and serve!

I absolutely loved using the Almond Butter from Woodstock, they have a wonderful range of products that pair nicely with any recipe or even just a simple snack! I love their line of "Craving" snacks, cause we all know we have those days when we have major snack time cravings! Their products help you make great non-gmo + organic snack time choices!

And who doesn't like a little BTS photo, Bruno was VERY Interest in the chocolate goodness that was VERY much at his level. I was blocking his one easy way to get so he took extra measures to get in as close as he could to the brownies
