Dark Chocolate Brownies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16 squares
  • ½ cup almond butter (or creamy natural peanut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons unrefined coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon oat flour (oats that have been ground)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup + ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Don't skip this step, or the brownies will be super hard to get out of the pan. Plus, with the parchment paper, you can just lift them right out and not have to clean the pan! :)
  2. Grind your oats in a blender or food processor (I use and love my Blendtec). Remember to measure the oat flour after grinding the oats.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the almond butter, honey, coconut sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the applesauce until combined, and then beat in the egg until just combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, stir together the oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  6. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, gently mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Do not over-stir.
  7. Fold in ½ cup of the dark chocolate chips and then transfer the mixture into the lined 8x8 baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup dark chocolate chips over the mixture.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until light and puffy. If you under-bake just a little they will be softer and more chewy.
  9. Cut into 16 (2 inch) squares. Enjoy guilt free!
