These brownies are gluten-free, delicious, and simple to make with nutrient dense almond butter. While sugar is far from being the main ingredient, a combination of high-quality cacao and almond butter takes the leading role. These brownies are rich, dark, and perfectly chocolaty. Indispensable for satisfying a chocolate cake craving! Packed with protein and healthy fat, these brownies will help you avoid the blood sugar spike that usually leaves you hungry after eating sweets. I personally love having one as my afternoon snack or in the morning as a part of my breakfast. Pairing them with some almond milk yogurt and berries is my favorite combination. These brownies are super filling so one or two will be more than enough to make you satisfied.
I personally prefer the minimally sweetened version of these brownies (see the recipe notes). They are my secret weapon for those days when I am in the mood for a chocolate cake but not in the mood for refined sugar 😉
