Hey guys! I’m real excited about these brownies. Want to know why? They are:
- Reasonably healthy, at least by my own standards.
- Gluten free!
- Easy to make, bake, and eat.
- Made of basic ingredients. No maca around here, much as I want to try it!
I got the basic recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie, but made some adjustments as always. For starters, I used both peanut butter and almond butter in the recipe, simply because I never seem to have enough of one nut butter for a recipe like this. I also used molasses to sweeten instead of maple syrup, which was a perfect healthier substitution! And finally, I reduced the amount of sweetener from 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons to just 1/2 cup. They are a little crumbly though, which was probably my fault for reducing the liquid and might be remedied by some aquafaba or a small flax egg. I’ll have to try that and report back!
I would only recommend these healthy brownies to people who like nuts and molasses, because you can definitely taste both of those ingredients. But, if you do like those ingredients, and if you also like rich, chewy, fragrant, hearty desserts… you might like these brownies 😉
