I've been trying to flex my gluten free baking muscles and brownies seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new. Unless you're going for something really cakey, brownies require very little flour. This means they're pretty darn easy to make gluten free without sacrificing any of the texture.
I made this recipe with 70% Esmeraldas discs and the flavor was perfect. I also swapped out the vanilla for just a quarter teaspoon of a high quality almond extract to bring out that almond flavor a little more. Stick with the vanilla if you want a classic chocolate brownie though!
These almond flour brownies are the perfect texture. Fudgey without being too dense. Good luck keeping them around for long!
If you're hoping to make your Daddio a brownie he can feel good about eating, these are packed with bananas and nut butter, and aren't overly sweet. Even better? They're incredibly easy and quick to make, so you can gift your favorite Daddio something healthy and delicious!
If you go for this recipe, do add the optional chocolate discs - they really take them to the next level! For the nut butter, we love Naturally Nutty almond and peanut butters but take this recipe to the next level with our Chocolate Sunbutter or Hazelnut Chocolate Spread.
