Cuisine: American
Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 cup of stevia mix for baking (Fructevia)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • ½ cup dutch cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cup almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder (optional)
  • Peanut Butter Topping:
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoons stevia mix for baking (Fructevia)
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 egg
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 8 by 8 pan with parchment.
  2. Mix butter with cocoa powder, vanilla, almond flour and salt. If you're using baking powder, add it now. If you add baking powder, your brownies will be more cake-like. They'll be denser and moister if you don't. Please note that baking powder is not always gluten free.
  3. Beat eggs with stevia until doubled.
  4. Mix chocolate mixture with eggs until just combined.
  5. Pour into prepared pan. Spread out evenly.
  6. To make peanut butter mixture, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. Please note, when I used powdered peanut butter, I used 4 tablespoons. You also need to add water to get the right consistency (it should be the consistency of brownie batter).
  7. You have two options. You can spread the peanut butter mixture evenly on top of the brownie mixture (pictured). If you want them to look marbled, drop the peanut butter mixture by spoonful about 2-3 inches apart. Use the back of a spoon or knife to "swirl" the peanut butter mixture into the chocolate. I couldn't get the powdered peanut butter to marble like regular peanut butter (it doesn't get as creamy) so you may be stuck with layering if you use it.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Cut into pieces. I cut mine into 20 small pieces, but I like a bite sized brownie.
