Chocolate is a staple dessert in my family. If I am throwing a party I know I need to plan on having several chocolate desserts, the rest just doesn’t get eaten up like the chocolate does. One of my favorite chocolate desserts to making is brownies, they are a quick and easy dessert that everyone enjoys. Ooey, gooey and oh so chocolatey, this recipe is going to wow your guests and their taste buds. Rich, moist and decadent like grandma use to make, only no flour, butter or granulated sugars. I know this sounds a little crazy, I mean who takes butter out of brownies, right? Believe me when I say TRY THESE … and when you do, try to share them! My favorite part about these brownies is that they are rich in chocolate with a hint of a nutty flavor at the end.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Directions: Grease an 8×8 glass dish and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, with a hand mixer or free standing mixer, combine almond butter, eggs, agave nectar or honey, pure vanilla extract and salt. Once ingredients are blended well add the cocoa powder and baking soda and continue to mix until combined. Using a spatula fold in the chocolate chips, combining all ingredients and pour in your 8×8 prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
