Gluten Free Almond Brownies (Recipe)

Posted on : June 11th, 2020

Today’s recipe was created by Tina Haupert, for the Almond Board of California. The reason it caught my eye is because when I went low carb and gluten-free a few years ago I really enjoyed some of the recipes I tried using almond flour and I really love brownies. I don’t know if you could really call these low carb with 1/2 cup of sugar, but I think they qualify for “lower-carb” and probably a lot healthier for you than most brownies!

I also have more than enough almond flour in my cupboard right now. But if you don’t, no worries! Just pop 1 cup (8 oz) of unsalted natural almonds into your food processor or blender and blend until they are finely ground. (SO easy, as long as you don’t walk away and let them turn into almond butter!)
