Guilt Free Brownies

Guilt Free Brownies

No need to feel guilty this Vday!


Ah, I love these brownies so much. They’re so incredibly rich, satisfying from just a small bite, and can be forgotten in the crockpot! You see, completey guilt free.  

I’m treating myself (and my family) and you (!), to @skinnytaste crockpot triple almond brownies. And just so ya know, it’s GF/DF/IBD Friendly

Except, I took my own home chef liberties and made some changes to the recipe. Here are the tweaks I made.

✖️Ditched the almond extract and almond slivers (kept the almond flour)

✖️Swapped agave for 🍯 honey

✖️Swapped cocoa for pure @navitasorganics cacao powder

✖️Used vegan chocolate chips

✖️ And added all natural peanut butter 🥜 because YUMMM

Honestly you’ll thank me later. Here’s the ingredient list and instructions adapted from Skinnytaste cookbook fast and slow. 



  • cooking spray
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1/2 c finely ground almond flour
  • 1/4 c cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 c water
  • 3 tbsp local honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 oz vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil to combine with the chocolate chips as you melt


  1. Set your crockpot to high. 
  2. Create a “tin foil rack” on the bottom of your crock pot and fill with water to about 2/3 way up on foil. 
  3. Coat parchment paper with spray and place inside a nonstick loaf pan (sizing depends on your crockpot, it will need to fit inside). 
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the egg until frothy. 
  5. In a medium size bowl, mix together the almond flour and the cacao powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  6. Fold in the egg white and then mix in the remaining wet ingredients. 
  7. Melt the chocolate chips and oil in the microwave at 20 second increments, stirring between each increment. Once melted, mix into the batter. 
  8. Pour batter into the loaf pan and set on top of the foil rack. 
  9. Cover the crockpot and let it sit on high for 3-4 hours. Test doneness by sticking a toothpick and seeing if it comes out clean. 
  10. Transfer parchment paper onto a cookie sheet and slow to cook completely before cutting.
