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