Healthy Peanut Brownies (gluten & dairy free)
Another super simple recipe, that helps to nourish the body. I grew up on peanut brownies, but not the healthy kind…. AND I was pretty much addicted to refined sugar cookies before I changed my lifestyle.
I had terrible cravings and chronic fatigue from eating sugary snacks and not looking after myself. I have come such a long way, and I would never want to feel that way again.
So when I am creating a new recipe I not only want to make it taste amazing, I want to be sure it’s going to keep my sugar levels balanced so that I don’t crave the bad stuff ever again.
These cookies sure do hit the spot, and are as healthy as a cookie can get!
1/2 jar of peanut butter (no added salt or sugar)
2 beaten eggs
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla essence (organic)
1 cup peanuts (I used
red skin organic
1 cup almond flour
Optional: 1 tsp honey for extra sweetness
Preheat the oven to 180 C.
As with most of my recipes it’s just a matter of popping everything in together and stirring well.
Combine the eggs, coconut sugar, peanut butter and vanilla, and then add the cocoa and almond flour, stir well and finally add the peanuts.
Stir again to combine.
Roll into tbsp sized balls and flatten with your fingers so they cook evenly.
Cook for around 12 – 18 minutes until they are firm and can be moved easily on the tray.
