Oh My...Flourless Brownies

Flourless brownies crumbs

These completely flourless brownies are what memorable dessert dreams are made of:  every bite is moist, rich, intense, and completely delicious.  You'll not only take little nibbles to make the pleasure last just a little bit longer but you'll most likely commit to making another batch before you reach the end of the first one.

I found this recipe idea over at Elana's Pantry.  She always inspires me with her clever use of gluten free and wholesome ingredients. I altered her original recipe just a bit:  maple syrup and a little evaporated cane juice instead of agave nectar, a little extra water, a little easier on the dark chocolate chips.  The result was a batch of very addictive and decadent brownies, blissfully free of (cow) butter or flour.

Flourless Brownies
(makes a 9 x 13 dish)

16 oz almond butter, smooth and roasted
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup evaporated cane juice
3/4 cup room temperature water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnut pieces, optional

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
    Place the almond butter, eggs, maple syrup in your mixer and blend until smooth.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (except for the walnut pieces)
  • Mix again to combine .
  • Oil a 9 x 13 ovenproof dish.
  • Pour the batter into it and sprinkle with walnut pieces.
  • Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes (20 minutes will yield some seriously gooey brownies, so leave them for 30 minutes instead if you like yours more dry).

You can safely use any regular sugar--or if you like experimenting try substituting the evap. cane juice with brown rice syrup or agave nectar instead. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
