Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Almond butter, divided
  • 4 Tbsp Honey or agave
  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp Coconut flour, (22g) READ NOTES*
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line the bottom of an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • Place 3/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp of the almond butter, reserving the rest for later, along with the honey in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave until the almond butter is smooth and melted, about 1-2 mins.
  • Add in the coconut sugar and beat with an electric hand mixer on medium heat until JUST combined, only about 20 seconds. Do not overmix or  you will add too much air into the brownies and they will sink when baking.
  • Add in the apple sauce and vanilla and gently whisk by hand until combined, being careful to not whisk in too much air.
  • Add in all the remaining ingredients and gently whisk by hand until smooth and combined. Your batter will be quite thick.  Let stand for 5 minutes so the coconut flour can begin to absorb the moisture.
  • Transfer to the baking pan and spread out evenly.  Melt the remaining 2 Tbsp of almond butter and drizzle all over the top.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool COMPLETELY in the pan.
  • Once cool, slice and DEVOUR!

Notes

*It is very important to weigh your flour to ensure accurate results, as different brands can have different weights. If you use too much the brownies will be dry and not enough means they will be too wet.
