Almond Butter Brownies

This recipe is a bit different than most of the ones we send, as it’s a dessert recipe, which involves no meat or vegetables. But if you’re going to make brownies, we suggest this as a much healthier recipe than anything you can find in a box at your local grocery store! This recipe is modified from one at Redeeming the Table.

 

Almond Butter Brownies

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of raw unsalted almond butter (16 ounces) (Trader Joe’s has it!)
  • 1/2-2/3 cup raw honey
  • 2 large omega-3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1/3-1/2 cup of a chopped 72% cacao chocolate bar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (technically optional, but necessary to keep stirring since the batter gets so thick)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan with a thin layer of coconut oil and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine almond butter, honey and vanilla and mix using an electric mixer for 1 minute on low, or mix by hand very thoroughly by hand. Add eggs and continue mixing on low until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Add cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and almond milk and start mixing on low, and then move to a medium speed. Mix for about another minute. Add the chocolate during the last 10 seconds to disperse it throughout the batter.
  4. Use a rubber spatula to scrape all batter from the edges of the bowl and spread evenly into the 9×13 pan.
  5. Cook for 20-30 minutes (less for a more gooey/fudgey, and longer for cakey consistency).
  6. Allow to cool, then cut into squares (preferably small ones) and serve.
