For the Brownie Batter:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Nut Butter Swirl:


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line an 8×8-inch (20×20 cm) square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Stir until well combined.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want a fudgy brownie texture.
  6. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. In a microwave-safe bowl, warm the Almond Butter and Gingerbread Nut Butter (or the spiced almond butter mixture) for about 20-30 seconds until it’s slightly softened and easy to swirl.
  8. Drop spoonfuls of the nut butter mixture onto the brownie batter in the pan.
  9. Use a knife or a skewer to create swirls by gently dragging it through the brownie batter and nut butter mixture, creating a marbled pattern.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter). Be cautious not to over bake; you want them to be fudgy.
  11. Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes. Then, use the parchment paper overhang to lift them out of the pan and onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Once cooled, cut the brownies into squares or bars.

Tip: These Almond Butter and Gingerbread Nut Butter Swirl Brownies are a delightful combination of rich, chocolatey brownies and the warm, spiced flavors of almond and gingerbread – a perfect holiday treat for family gatherings or as a sweet gift for your friends and family!
