basic bitch brownies

it’s 930pm. i don’t have any flour. and i’ve got the munchies… what’s a girl to do?

thankfully, arman from @the big man’s world, was waiting in the wings, ready to help.

so, without further ado. here it is. 3 ingredient, super simple brownies with no butter, flour, grains or sugar.

ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce (with a pinch of cinnamon)
  • 1/2 cup drippy almond butter (i did half/half with peanut butter for some extra crunch)
  • 1/4- 2/3 cup raw cacao powder

instructions

  • preheat the oven to 170 degrees and coat a small loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • in a large mixing bowl, add your applesauce and nut butter and mix well. once mixed, add cacao and mix until fully incorporated and a thick, silky batter remains.
  • transfer brownie batter to pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out just clean (be careful not to overcook!).
  • allow the brownies to cool in the pan completely. then once cooled, refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • remove from the fridge, slice into bars and top with optional extras (raspberries, ganache or whatever takes your fancy).

Notes:

  • brownies need to be kept refrigerated but are also freezer friendly.
  • cooking time can vary, depending on your oven.
