OK... OK... I know it's literally been FOREVER since I've posted ANYTHING!! This last year was C-R-A-Z-Y to say the least... lots of traveling, having a baby, and moving across country!! I definitely put my blogging on hold... but I'm back!!! You could say these brownies inspired me to blog again... they're that good!!
I have been searching and searching to find, or create, a really great HEALTHY brownie recipe... FOUND IT!! My friend and practically 2nd mom, Tammy Windsor, introduced these bad boys to me but in the form of cookies.. they were delicious!! While going through the recipe it dawned on me... "This would make the perfect brownie!" So I just made a few changes and turned them into moist gooey brownies! My husbands exact words "WOW, these taste like real brownies!" Especially with hitting that New Years resolution of getting back on track to a healthy lifestyle, these have been making that possible! It feels like I'm cheating but I'm NOT... I love that feeling! Anyone with me?! It's that good!
1 (16oz) Jar Thick Almond Butter (creamy or with nuts)
3/4 Cup Honey
2 Eggs, whisked
1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
Preheat Oven 350
~ In a large bowl, mix together almond butter, honey, and eggs.
~ Add cocoa powder 1/4 cup at a time, baking soda, vanilla, salt and mix until completely combined. It should be a very thick dough and may need to use your hands, worth it!
~ Spread dough out onto a greased 13x9 Baking pan
~ Bake 15-18min (honestly depends on how soft you like your brownies... I do 15min)
~ Let cool and set for about 20min before indulging.
NOTE: Brownies will rise high while baking and then sink a little while cooling, that's normal.
