Almond Butter Brownies

It’s been way too long since I’ve given this blog any love.  Life with kids gets busy!  I have some yummy recipes up my sleeve I have been wanting to post and just haven’t been able to sit down and write something up.

I made these almond butter brownies in my quest for a grain/ gluten free, egg free and refined sugar free yummy brownie.  After a few tweaks we have a winner and I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I’ve made these 3 times this past week.  That also means the whole family loves them.  I even made them for company for Father’s Day.  So, if I can serve them to company, that means they are good!  I also like that they are free of refined grains and packed with protein, hopefully preventing a large blood sugar spike.  We usually eat them with some homemade coconut milk ice cream.  There is nothing better than fudgy brownies with some ice cream.

Ingredients

1 cup creamy almond butter

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey

1 tsp baking soda

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 2 tablespoons water (mix these together in a separate bowl and let sit for a few minutes to thicken.  Alternately, you can use 1 egg)

2 tablespoons almond milk

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup chocolate chips

Mix ingredients together.  They will be super thick.  Spread into a 8×8 greased pan.  Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting.  Enjoy over a scoop of yummy vanilla ice cream!
