Baking with almond flour can be tough sometimes, but this recipe is super easy and turns out every time. My daughter is gluten free and these are one of her favorite desserts. She loves to top them with some vanilla ice cream while they are still warm. Okay, now I’m hungry.

Our favorite allergy-friendly chocolate chips to use come from Enjoy Life. So yummy! We find them in our local Walmart, but I also order them from Thrive Market. They are always in our pantry for when we want to bake a sweet treat. I get almost all of our baking goods from Thrive actually. It is more cost effective that way and it gets delivered to my front door. #winning

Recipe Notes:

  • To get the marbling on top of the brownies, place 4 dollops of almond butter on top of the batter once it has been spread out in the pan. Use a knife or toothpick to swirl the almond butter and then bake
  • To make this recipe even more decadent melt some of the chocolate chips and drizzle on top before serving. OMG
  • Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days
  • You cannot sub coconut flour in this recipe, it will not work
