Brownies make the world a better place. Don’t you agree? I don’t know who invented them, but I would love to personally thank them because they are hands down my favorite dessert + total guilty pleasure.
I have basically no self control when it comes to brownies, and I’m the type of person that usually with cut a square out of the pan, and then cut an edge of of whats left in the pan, and then another edge.. and another.. until half the pan of brownies is missing. Oops. (I know you’ve totally done this too!)
All things chocolate have + probably always will be my favorite. Whenever there is a dessert menu, I always turn to the chocolate option, and I feel like no day is complete without my little nightly square of dark chocolate. It makes me happy + tastes so darn good. (This one is my fav, btw)
Over the years I’ve tried loooots of brownies, and even though the boxed ones are OK in a pinch.. there is nothing better than making them from scratch. (And let’s be real.. real butter + sugar are great too.. but these Paleo Salted Almond Butter Brownies don’t have that) There’s no comparison to a homemade brownie that’s gooey in the middle + crackly on top with lots of chocolate chunks. They’re the best!
While these Paleo Salted Almond Butter Brownies aren’t the same as a real deal brownie with oodles of sugar and fat – they’re pretty darn delicious. They’re super fudgey, packed with chocolate, easy to make, and taste amazing. They feel sophisticated because they’re made with almond butter and have sea salt sprinkled on them.. and basically – what I’m telling you, is you need to make them.
These would be the perfect paleo Valentine’s Day dessert or treat for anyone that you love in your life. Cause what better gift is there besides chocolate?!
Things we used for this recipe:
It took a lot of self control to only take one bite out of these before I took this picture – just sayin’! I think you guys are going to looooove these. And if you’re not 100% paleo – I totally recommend peanut butter for the drizzle/in the brownies… cause peanut butter + chocolate are pretty much the greatest combo of all time. Enjoy! 🙂
