Easy to make two-bite Nut Butter Brownie Bites, topped with an almond butter chocolate glaze. A decadent, delicious, chocolate treat.
Hello it’s Celeste from The Whole Serving, here with a sweet one for you, Nut Butter Brownie Bites. My daughter has been asking for homemade brownies for three weeks and I’ve been craving chocolate peanut butter cups. I finally gave in to her request and made some brownie bites instead. However, because my daughter has an allergy to peanuts, and I have stopped eating chocolate peanut butter cups. I added in a bit of almond nut butter to satisfy my craving for chocolate peanut butter cups.
These two-bite brownies are so delicious and I have been known to eat some in one-bite. The reason I call them Nut Butter Brownie Bites instead of using the name of the nut butter I used is because the baker gets to choose which nut butter they want to use when baking them. If peanut butter isn’t a problem in your household, by all means you can use it instead.
What takes these bits over the top is the glaze. A mix of powdered sugar, chocolate and nut butter with just a bit of almond milk. The combination of the soft tender brownie and smooth creamy glaze makes it very hard to eat only a few of these. If you want you can serve them unglazed.
They are so easy to make why not make a batch for someone special in your life.
