Almond Butter Brownies

I should probably change the name of these to “Heavenly Brownies” or “Brownies Sent From Heaven” or something along those lines. Seriously, I can’t stop eating them and I may or may not have eaten 2 with my lunch. Ok, I don’t want to talk anymore about them because I’ll end up eating the last one in the pan….

Drum-roll please….

Almond Butter Browniesbrownie
1 cup almond butter
2 tbsp flaxseed + 3 tbsp water or 1 egg
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup honey
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup of dark chocolate chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small dish (8×8 or 8×6) with coconut oil or line bottom of dish with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips until smooth, then add chocolate chips. Pour the batter into your pan and bake until golden brown (about 25 minutes).
Let brownies cool for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting.

Notes:

  • I used the flaxseed + water mixture. If you use an egg and your mixture seems too powdery, add another egg.
  • Parchment paper makes it SO much easier to cut the brownies.
  • Any nut or seed butter would work (peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, etc)
  • Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks will work.
  • Money Saving Tip:
    I buy my Almond Butter from Costco for $7.99 for a 26 ounce jar. I’m not sure if you’ve checked prices on Almond Butter lately at regular grocery stores, but it’s usually that much for a 12 ounce jar. Check wholesale stores like Costco or even Amazon for cheaper prices. Also, Trader Joes has decently priced Almond Butter.
