Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Brownies (vegan & gluten-free)

These Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Brownies taste like a decadent dessert, but they’re also vegan, gluten-free & date-sweetened! Rich, fudgy & satisfying.

It was only a matter of time before this recipe happened. I’ve been wanting to recreate my wildly popular Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Bars with a twist, so what better than chocolate?

That may have been one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. I didn’t think my almond butter bars could get any better, but it turns out that adding a chocolate element takes them to a whole new level. Just look at that deep, dark, rich chocolatey goodness. Can I just face plant into a warm pan of these? Feel the same way?

If I had to pick a favorite dessert (after cheesecake, of course), it’d probably be brownies. But not like dry, cakey brownies. If I wanted cake, I’d get a slice of cake, ya feel me? No – I want the thickest, fudgiest you have. This may have something to do with the fact that I love raw brownie batter, so I like my brownies undercooked. THAT’S the key to a good brownie.

I know you guys love healthy desserts, and I don’t blame you. Add this recipe to your list of better-for-you desserts ASAP! Of course, it’s great to treat yourself to “unhealthy” foods you love every now & then, but I feel so good knowing that I can treat myself and nourish my body with more wholesome ingredients!
