Healthy One Bowl Flourless Brownies (Gluten-free, Grain-free)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients (9 brownies)
- 3 large eggs, preferably organic
- 1 cup well-stirred creamy/smooth all-natural unsweetened almond butter, (the only ingredients should be almonds and salt)
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8 inch square (or 7 x 11 rectangular) baking pan with parchment paper going both ways (leave a bit of excess paper hanging over the sides of the pan to allow for easy removal).
Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl until lightly beaten, then stir in almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt with a rubber spatula or spoon until smooth. The batter will be very thick and sticky.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, and spread it into an even layer.
Baking for 15-17 minutes (or 14-16 minutes if using a 7 x 11 pan), or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownies comes out mostly clean. The brownies will rise in the oven, but then deflate while they cool.
Let brownies cool completely before lifting them out of the pan using the overhanging parchment paper. Cut into squares.
