Almond Butter Brownie Bites

It is the height of the holidays and there is no better time to indulge.  These little bites (or BIG bites when I make them) are a perfect treat.  They don’t take long to whip up and they are definitely better for you than Sugar Cookies and Cheesecake.  I have linked the original recipe by Penny Sugar at the bottom of the page.  Below is the recipe I use that is modified for my Gluten and Dairy free restrictions.

Ingredients:

  1. For brownies:
  2. 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  3. 1/2 cup Protein powder that is Whey and Dairy free
  4. 2/3 cup raw sugar (Coconut Sugar)
  5. 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 banana
  9. 1/2 cup olive oil
  10. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  11. 1/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  1. For peanut butter swirl:
  2. 1/4 cup Almond butter
  3. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  4. 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir the dry ingredients together (flour, protein powder, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt), and set aside.
  • Mash the banana in a large bowl. Stir in the olive oil, one teaspoon vanilla, and chocolate chips.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix well (it will be thick).
  • Use a spoon to fill each of the muffin wells just to the top.
  • In a small ceramic bowl, mix the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Pop the bowl in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds, until slightly softened.
  • Add a dollop of the almond butter mixture to the top of each brownie bite.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

A really easy recipe to follow.  I have also been known to make brownie cookies, by using a cookie sheet instead of a muffin pan.  When the cookies cool, slather Almond butter on the top of one and make a cookie-brownie sandwich.  Add some jam for an extra treat.
