Almond, Almond Butter Brownies

I’m writing a blog for Smart Girls Loop on healthier desserts for the holiday season, and I thought it would be the perfect excuse to make my own recipe for homemade brownies! My inspiration came from FoodBabe’s Almond Butter Brownies, but I changed it up a little bit by adding a banana (instead of extra sugar), cacao powder, and sliced almonds for extra deliciousness.

  5. Bake brownies until golden brown
  6. Serve when warm – forget about cooling them!

My favorite part about these brownies are that they are gluten free (no flour!) and dairy-free. So, they are perfect for those picky eaters at all of your family gatherings. Now, I just need to find a way to make these brownies more festive for the holidays. Have any ideas? What do you like to bake this time of year?

Love always,
