Brownies are such a special treat. They are so rich and chocolaty and they are so fun to make. I made these for my daughter to have a fun ‘back-to-school’ surprise. She loved them and asked me if I could make them everyday. I was so excited because baked goods with almond flour don’t always get her seal of approval. But these chocolate almond butter brownies have the perfect texture and tons of chocolate, so you can’t go wrong.
These decadent little bites are gluten free and so easy to whip together. To get this beautiful texture, the recipe calls for baking powder. Baking powder is not traditionally ‘Paleo’ because it often contains cornstarch and other fillers. So, you have two options. You can using Baking Soda instead and you will have thinner more fudge-like brownies or you can make your own baking powder.
Making your own baking powder is so simple! All you have to do is mix 1 part Baking Soda to 2 parts Cream of Tartar. Just mix it in a small bowl and use right away for your recipe.
Enjoy Life chocolate chips are my favorite gluten, dairy, and soy free option for baking. They taste exactly like a regular chocolate chip, no one can tell the difference. Now, lets bake some brownies..
Add the room temp butter (or ghee or coconut oil), eggs, almond butter, coconut sugar and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl and use a whisk to fully combine.
Next add the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt) in with the wet ingredients.
Stir the chocolate chips into the batter and pour into a parchment lined 8×8 baking dish
Add dollops of almond butter on top and use a skewer or toothpick to swirl the almond butter into the batter
