Chocolate Chip Brownies (Gluten-free)

I came across this recipe while on my cleanse last month, and I wished I hadn’t at that time, because it was all I could think about for the last day or two of the cleanse. I couldn’t wait to try it out. I had almond butter on hand from smoothies and other recipes during my cleanse and I had really fallen in love with it. So versatile and there so many recipes it will work in, plus it is super tasty on its own on a spoon, just like old faithful, peanut butter. I had an amazing gluten-free brownie a while ago at the Lexington Coop and had been looking around online for a similar recipe using those ingredients. I came across this recipe on Elana’s Pantry, a wonderful gluten-free blog that features so many great recipes, many of which are made with almond flours and almond flour butter, etc.

These brownies are not only the best gluten-free brownies I have ever had, I think they are the best brownies, period. My husband couldn’t get enough and couldn’t stop raving about them, he said they were the best had ever had, too. He is such a good gauge for these types of recipes, since many times what I think is good, really isn’t, since it’s been over 6 years since I have had gluten and the original versions. When he can’t get enough and says it’s the best ever, I know I have struck gold. I cannot wait to make these again, maybe with nuts or coconut, even.

Whether you can have gluten or not, you need to make these brownies. It’s not only amazing that these are gluten-free but I cannot believe that there isn’t any flour in them. Not only are they a lovely protein-packed, healthier version of a classic dessert but they are just plain perfect!

    Well, now I know what I’m having for early dinner and late dinner and midnight snack–and probably breakfast, too, if there are any crumbs left in the pan.

    MMM these look great!
    And great Blog BTW, just stumbled on it.
    I make a black bean chocolate brownies, which are pretty similar (recipe link below) but they are dairy free too. Almond butter is such a great baking product, especially in GF baking.

  10. I’ve never come across almond butter; I love almonds so it sounds delicious! In what other ways would you typically use it? As a spread? Those brownies look divine!

  11. My family and I have been following the Blood Type Diet by Dr. D’Adamo for long time, and it has became part of our lives. As blood type O people, our major avoids are when and dairy products. So, making repipes from the series of books “Eat Right For Your Type” is fret because I don’t have to modify any recipe, I just make them and they come out great all the time.
    This is why I love this recipe because it has great ingredients and they are all in my list of foods I can eat, and I don’t have to worry about calories either since all the ingredients agree with my digestion system. Loveeeeeeeeeeee itttttttttt!
    Thank you Elena,

    Great post…..love the site! 🙂

  16. Just saw your post on foodpress and decided to make these on the spur of the moment, yum! I have to be honest and say Jamie Oliver’s still take the cake but then they have enough butter, eggs and chocolate in them to trigger a coronary so considering how much healthier these are, they kick some brownie backside!

    Thanks for the recipe!
