Author - Alyssa Rimmer

These easy almond butter brownies are a unique twist on the traditional brownie, using way healthier ingredients. No butter, vegan and gluten-free too!

Easy Almond Butter Brownies

We're getting a little fancy with our dessert today! See that drizzle of chocolate and chopped walnuts? Might look like a million bucks, but have no fear, these easy almond butter brownies are just that…EASY!

When it comes to baking, I sometimes have to do a few tests to check all my boxes. If you aren't familiar, my boxes include: gluten-free, dairy-free, usually egg-free, definitely refined sugar-free and always with a healthy twist.

That's a long list to get through and still give you guys the same traditional textures and flavors that you love. But we nailed it today. And you're going to gobble these up. We're talking healthy, gooey, fudgy and easy almond butter brownies!

How to make Fudgy Brownies

The Secret to Making Fudgy Brownies

I'm all about the fudge factor when it comes to chocolate brownies. The gooier the better in my eyes. But that can take a little work when you're also making them healthy.

Traditional fudge brownies get their fudge from the combination of butter (or vegetable oil) and eggs.

We're not using either of those in this recipe, but we still managed to pull it out. Rather than filling your treats up with those not-so-good ingredients, we're using almond butter, coconut oil, flax eggs and then a little quinoa flour to bring it all together. They're light, they're tender and they are fudgy AF!

Gluten-Free Vegan Brownies

Vegan & Gluten-Free Brownies for the Win

Luckily, if you're looking to make super fudgy brownies, using a vegan egg substitute is actually going to help with that texture.

To make these brownies vegan and gluten-free, we're using just a few simple swaps:

  • flax eggs for the chicken eggs
  • almond butter + coconut oil for the butter
  • quinoa flour for the all-purpose flour

Otherwise, it's a pretty straightforward recipe! And it's so simple to make. Just stir everything into your bowl, transfer it to the pan, bake it up, cool, drizzle and slice. SO GOOD.
