1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative
4-8 tsp pure maple syrup (click for a sugar-free alternative
2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tsp milk of choice, or more for thinner frosting
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
optional: handful of chocolate chips (the "pieces")
Blend everything (including chips, if using) in a small food processor or Magic Bullet. If you have a bigger processor, it might be best to double the recipe so everything blends more smoothly. Best to store uneaten frosting covered in the fridge.

Substitution notes: If you don’t like or can’t have peanut butter, feel free to try this recipe with almond butter, cashew butter, sun-butter, or maybe even coconut butter! Agave can be subbed for the maple syrup. I haven’t tried a stevia version, nor have I tried the healthy frosting recipe with pb2 or better’n pb. Try those substitutions at your own risk. This healthy frosting recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and free of refined sugar.
