Like the old saying goes, when life gives you Super Moist Flourless Brownies, switch the almond butter for peanut butter and turn them into Super Moist Flourless Peanut Butter Brownies.
I admit that I often get on recipe kicks at my house. We discover a new recipe we love and we make it thirty times in forty days because we can’t get enough. (Sometimes, but not always, I exaggerate.) So it is with both varieties of these Super Moist Flourless Brownies. They are so incredibly good that we have gone through a ridiculous amount of Almond Butter and Peanut Butter in the past month and a half.
There goes the grocery budget.
Well, only sort of. After all, both of these brownie varieties are super wholesome and full of protein. So I’ll put out a pan of these for breakfast (no one complains, mind you) and because they are so rich and filling, there’s no need for me to add meat to the meal. Therefore, we’re subbing nut butter for bacon on days like this. Money-wise, it’s kind of a wash. Taste wise, well, we love our bacon, but the trade off is brownies. So everyone is happy.
If you’ve tried the Super Moist Flourless Brownie recipe (only 5 ingredients!) you’ll look at this one and notice that the only difference is a direct exchange of peanut butter for the almond butter. It’s too easy!
But here’s the thing: The tiny ingredient switch makes for a significant flavor change. This Super Moist Flourless Peanut Butter Brownies recipe really turns out a treat with the awesome peanut-butter-chocolate taste so many of us love! The Super Moist Flourless Brownies recipe made with almond butter taste like regular, but amazing, brownies.
So we love both. A lot. Like, I’m buying cases of Almond Butter just so we can make brownies. I can’t help it.
Make Your Own Nut Butters
I consistently make Homemade Peanut Butter, which does save a few pennies, but mostly just produces the most amazing peanut butter in the whole wide world. This one is super creamy and spreadable, our favorite. This one is made with straight peanuts, also incredible. Both are nourishing.
I have experimented with making Almond Butter but for the most part, I buy it already made.
Whether you make or buy your nut butters, I recommend using unsweetened, natural butters in these recipes.
Super Moist Flourless Peanut Butter Brownies
- 1½ cups (12-ounces) Peanut Butter
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- Stir all ingredients together until well combined.
- Spread batter into a buttered 8x8 inch baking dish.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. (Remove them from the oven when they are just slightly underdone so they come out moist!)
Can you believe, these brownies have taken the place of my Fat Bombs for now? Depending on the day. I guess it’s apparent I really like my chocolate and my peanut butter, in all its healthy forms.
