  • 2/3 cup chopped dark chocolate, OR dairy-free chocolate chips divided
  • 1/3 cup drippy unsalted almond butter , can also sub with any other nut OR seed butter you have
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil , melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (can also sub with golden monk fruit sweetener OR even brown sugar)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (can also sub with Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup)
  • 2 large eggs , room temperature (sub with 3 Tablespoons ground flaxseeds + 8 Tablespoons water for vegan brownies)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder OR unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • melted chocolate glaze
  • flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Line an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang (for easier removal). Set aside.

  2. In a large heat-safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup of the chocolate, almond butter and coconut oil over a double-boiler or in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring well until chocolate is just melted and smooth (stir well in between - do not overheat).

  3. Remove from heat then whisk in coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Add eggs and whisk until incorporated. Stir in cocoa powder followed by the almond flour until just combined. Fold in remaining chocolate. The batter will be thick.

  4. Spread batter into prepared pan and smooth with an offset spatula.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 28-32 minutes - underbake for fudgier brownies. Allow to completely cool before slicing into even squares.
