Lemon Brownies

Don't be decieved.  There is not chocolate in these brownies.  :)  These are a brownie consistency. That's why they are likened to brownies.  Maybe they should actually be called Yellows.  Ha.

These were great! A total fresh lemon flavor.

Lemon Brownies

3/4 cup all-purpose (gluten free) flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Lemon Glaze
4 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp lemon zest
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.
Zest and juice two lemons, or enough to get proper measurements.  Set aside.  Beat the flour, sugar, salt and melted coconut oil, until well combined.  In another  bowl whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until well combined.  Pour it into the flour mixture, and beat for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.  Pour into 8x8 baking dish and cook for 25-27 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.  Allow to cool completely before glazing.
Mix the powdered sugar, lemon juice and zest.  Whisk until well combined.  Spread over the 'brownies'.  Enjoy!
