Almond Butter Chocolate Brownies

Sharing is caring!

Almond butter makes a great flourless brownie and gives it a fudgy texture that is delightfully rich.

This is one of my very first attempts at gluten free baking so I thought that it would be time to revisit it.   Many years ago I used honey which made the brownie very moist but now I turned to xylitol for the sweetener.  The brownie is still fudge like, especially the next day.

I make my own almond butter as it’s easy and cheaper.  You could make this brownie recipe with another nut butter as well.   I sometimes use a mix of almond and cashew nut butter.  Both butters are easy to make if you have a food processor and a lot cheaper than buying it in a jar from your health store.

I had a play around with these using salted almonds to make the almond butter and used a dash of coffee in the mixture.  They made a nice slightly salty and coffee brownie treat.  Feel free to play around with the flavours of the brownies too!

    Can this be made using an artificial sweetener, if so how much?

      Hi, I would think so but would keep it to about a cup. You might want to add an extra egg too, to keep it moist as the honey makes this recipe lovely and gooey!
