Almond Flour Brownies

I have been grateful for all this time that I was given. It has allowed me to experiment with some foods that I thought I would not have time to try. Its also given me an opportunity to use up items in my pantry.

A couple months ago, I bought a large bag of almond flour at Costco because it was the same price as a small bag at a different store. Of course this was my downfall because I never used a lot of the bag. Don’t fall for that trick! I needed to use the almond flour because I feared that it would go bad before I used it up. I noticed that it had a recipe on the back of the packaging so I decided that I should try it out.

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl add the softened butter (2 tsp) and 1/2 cup of sugar. Cream this using an electric beater or by hand. The colour should start becoming a light yellow. Add an egg and beat together.

In a separate mixing bowl, add 1 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla. Start combining the egg mixture and almond flour mix. Add 1/4 cup almond milk and mix everything together.

Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and mix it. This would be a time to mix in the 1/4 cup almonds. I decided to omit it in the recipe since I am not a huge fan of whole nuts in my brownies. Scoop the batter into a lined 8 inch baking tray. (I used a 9inch and the brownies didn’t reach the edges).

Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool for about 15 minutes before cutting it into pieces. Enjoy!
