Fudgy Almond Butter Brownies

16 servings Prep time: 10 min Cook time: 25 min

These Fudgy Almond Butter Brownies are one of the greatest ways to satisfy a chocolate craving, made out of clean ingredients like fiber-rich cassava flour, creamy almond butter, and low-glycemic coconut sugar. They’re chewy, fudgy, vegan, with just the right amount of sweetness.

Dark chocolate is actually a powerful superfood that can boost our mood and relaxation thanks to its high content of minerals, antioxidants, and feel-good phytonutrients like theobromine. Flavanols from cacao have even been found to increase cerebral blood flow, suggesting cognitive benefits. 

Almond butter is rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats as well as vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium. Combined with the other ingredients in this recipe, it creates the perfect base for a fudgy brownie.

I know the whole family will love these as much as I do.
