Almond Brownies (Gluten Free)


New favourite brownie recipe (you can have more than one favourite, right?). Super easy but makes the moist-est, fudgiest brownies in the known universe. They’re like eating brownie batter but this way it’s socially acceptable. It just takes one saucepan and minimal elbow grease. If you don’t need them to be gluten free then just replace the almond meal with plain flour.

150g butter

1 1/4 cups caster sugar

3/4 cup cocoa

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp fine salt

2 eggs

1/3 cup almond meal

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/3 cup flaked almonds

Preheat the oven to 160 C and line an 8 X 8 baking tin with baking paper.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan on low heat then mix in the sugar, cocoa, vanilla and salt, allow to cool for 5 minutes off the heat.

Beat in the eggs and almond meal then fold in the chocolate chips.

Transfer to the prepared baking tin and spread evenly with a spatula, sprinkle over the flaked almonds.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, allow to chill completely before cutting into squares.
