Almond Butter Brownies

Almond butter brownie recipe | thelovelylauralife.com The best almond butter brownie recipe | thelovelylauralife.comWe ate them all.  We at them all gone.

Over the weekend I finally got around to trying out this almond butter brownie recipe I’ve been wanting to make.  Of course I always have to make a few substitutions to any recipe I ever make, largely (ahem, mainly) because I never seem to have everything I need to follow a recipe exactly.  So while this recipe may have been good before — it was freaking awesome after I got my hands on it. ;)

Who doesn’t love a brownie that is  decadently rich + even a little bit nutritious?  No one I tell you.  No one.

I’ve re-written the recipe as I created it below, hopefully to your enjoyment.  But you can find the original un-altered version here. I would like to try it with egg at some point and just add chia seeds into the mix, however it’s safe to say I will be making some more of these very, very soon.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup raw maple almond butter
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup of raw turbinado sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup of “Enjoy Life” mini chocolate chunks
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease (I used Spectrum organic shortening) a small dish (8×8 or 8×6) thoroughly or line bottom of dish with parchment paper.  (Use 9 x13 if doubling recipe).
  3. Mix all ingredients except chocolate chunks until smooth.
  4. Fold in chocolate chunks and pour batter into pan.
  5. Bake brownies until golden dark brown – about 25 mins.
  6. Cool brownies for at least 10 mins before cutting.

*Note: double the recipe when you make it… You’ll thank me, I promise. ;)

    There isn’t even any flour of any kind in these? Wow!

      Nope, I was super surprised myself. They are perhaps the most moist brownie (my fav) I’ve ever tasted! Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
