Don’t ruin your hard work with a craving for yummy brownies. Boxed brownies are easy and quick to make but filled with loads of sugar!! Instead, try this simple recipe that has minimal ingredients and takes only 25min to bake!!! You probably have half of the ingredients at home already!!!
1 (16 ounce) jar of creamy almond butter [I get unsalted]
1 1/14 cups of agave nectar or honey [I use honey because agave nectar has been researched as an inflammatory 😦 ]
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of Hershey’s 100% cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon of celtic sea salt or himalayan salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup chocolate chunks [I use ghirardelli due to highest cocoa percentage of 60% in baking isle]
1. blend almond butter with hand blender until smooth
2. blend in eggs, honey/agave, and vanilla extract
3. blend in cacao, salt, baking soda, and then fold in chocolate chunks
4. grease 9 x 13 inch baking dish and pour batter in
5. bake at 325 for 25-40 min!!!!
If you find your batter super thick and dry, it’s ok, your brownies will come out cake like but still yummy. I found that by adding a dash of water (just under 1/4 cup) helps a lot. It makes it look very watery, but when they bake and come out they’re very gooey and delicious!!! Try out both was and perfect your own!!
I also add coconut flakes on top 🙂
