This is my older son’s favorite treat. Whenever I ask him what he would like me to bake for him, he says, “brownies.” He loves packing these higher-protein treats in his lunch for dessert. http://www.elanaspantry.com/desserts/brownies/

I LOVE this recipe. It is the best gluten free and dairy free brownie recipe out there imo. And I have tried quite a few :) For my recipe I made my own nut butter with 12 oz. of hazelnuts heated on low heat on the stove for a few minutes to release the oils then processed in the food processor till they start to look like a nut butter. And instead of agave I used one cup of dark honey. These are my go to when I NEED something with chocolate. Also I think dairy free needs to be added in the title. It would help all those searching for gluten free and dairy free treats :)
Abolutely delicious! I made these brownies yesterday and brought them to a get together. Everybody loved them. I did not modify the recipe at all. Very tasty! I did notice when I originally viewed the recipe that it did not mention how much almond butter to use. It requires a 16 oz jar. Enjoy!
Very good and better the 2nd day. I made them for my mother who needs extra calories and she likes them. I gave one to the aide on duty and she liked it too. It was hard to imagine that the gooey batter would rise, but it did. My teen daughter likes them too, so it will be one I make again. I think I'll use xylitol next time since what I've read says that agave nectar isn't that good for you. Thanks!
