BROWNIES - Gooey & Gluten Free

brownies1.jpg

That's right... BROWNIES... If you want to make me a treat... make me BROWNIES!!!!
It's one of my absolute favorite things ever! Even better served warm with vanilla ice cream... Yeah.. You pretty much can't go wrong with that.. Seriously... 

As for this recipe, don't swap anything.. If you use all coconut sugar and leave out the maple syrup, you'll have a much more caky result.. The same goes with leaving out the oil.. Basically.. Stick to the recipe.. I have not yet tried using flax eggs but if you do, plz lemme know how it goes. 

 

🍫 INGREDIENTS: 

  • 3/4 cup SMOOTH almond butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( I use this )
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil 
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
    Optional:  1/2 cup chocolate chips
    Optional: For a 'protein brownie' I sometimes add 4 scoops of THIS collagen protein

🍫 Preheat oven, MIX all ingredients together - no specific order!
🍫Fill a 9x9 pan and bake at 350F for 15min. Let cool completely - if you can wait 🤗
*  (I'd rather under bake than over bake as you could always pop it back in.)

NOTES: Not all almond butter is created equal. Some are more smooth than others and I've found that somehow it does make a difference - the more smooth the better but hey.. They still taste amazing. I recommend getting almond butter that doesn't have any other ingredients added.

Have fun baking...
