February 2021... With Super Bowl and Valentines Day coming up, these Fudgy Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies are a must make!
Super easy and always a crowd pleaser!
I am so excited for you to try these gluten-free Fudgy Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies!
I’m going to go out on a limb and say they are the best chocolate brownie I’ve ever made!
Crackly top, then perfectly fudgy, chocolatey, soft and chewy center.
Plus, there’s an option to add extra chocolate chips to make extra chocolatey or make without for just a perfect brownie!
And we have a cooking video on this page so you can see how easy they are to make!
If you’re new to the website, there is a printable recipe with exact measurements and directions at the bottom of this page.
So let’s make them!
They’re made with just 8 ingredients you probably already have in your pantry:
butter or dairy free butter
dark chocolate chips (use dairy-free version as desired)
And the batter comes together in just about 10 minutes!
First you melt 1/2 cup of the dark chocolate chips with the butter (on the cooking video I say water, no idea why, except to say that sometimes I speak incorrectly while trying to speak and cook and videotape… please excuse me when I do that. I will re-record and update soon! The recipe is always correct.)
While that the chocolate and butter melt, mix the eggs until super frothy. Then add in the sugar and mix until well combined.
Then add the melted chocolate/ butter and vanilla to the eggs/ sugar mix.
Meanwhile, use a pastry cutter, fork or whisk to mix together the almond flour, baking powder and salt. This not only combines the dry ingredients but will make the flour finer and improve the texture of the brownies.
Add the almond flour mix to the chocolate mix and that’s it!
If you’re adding in additional dark chocolate chips, add them in now. If not, transfer to your prepared baking pan and bake!
It couldn’t be quicker or easier!
You’ll note, I like to bake with parchment paper because then after baking I can lift the parchment paper right out of the pan and it’s easier to cut into squares and easier for clean-up!
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center and you’re done!
Your home will smell amazing!!
And you’ll be tempted to eat them straight away!
But best to let them set (they continue to cook while still hot in the pan too!)… it will be much easier cut!
Then you have the perfect brownie!
A crisp brownie top, then a soft and chewy, fudgy center.
So you can determine if you want to add the extra chocolate chips or not, here’s what one taste tester and her family said…
Either way, I hope you love them as much as we do!
