A little warning about this post. It’s not only “sweet” with a delicious Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies recipe, it’s also a sweet love story from 2 years ago.

Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies

Because life is usually very sweet, I thought I’d post one of our all-time favorite Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies recipe, that we enjoy in our home.

In fact, they are so good, I usually keep a batch in the freezer. You can freeze these up to 3 months!

Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies

Why in the freezer? When we’re trying to hold back on our sweets and have a little discipline in our lives?

Several times in the past month, we’ve hosted dinners here where I’ve asked a guest to bring dessert.

Gluten Free Brownies

There’s always someone in the group now who seems to be gluten-free, and these brownies are just that!

How to freeze brownies

Made with almond flour (I buy Blue Diamond Almond Flour at Costco), I keep brownie squares individually wrapped, so they’re easy to pull from the freezer and quickly microwave.  Almond flour is easy to find in most stores now, and sometimes we buy it at Trader Joe’s, too.

No need to worry about gluten-free when I’m already prepared, right?

But … even if you’re not gluten-free, the flavor is so divine!

How to freeze brownies: To freeze brownies or bar cookies, cool brownies or bar cookies completely, but do not cut into individual servings. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap again with foil. Freeze up to 3 months. To thaw, unwrap and let them stand at room temperature for 3-4 hours before cutting into squares or bars.

And, have I told you just how much I just love a brownie that melts in your mouth? JUST WATCH THE VIDEO!

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!

  1. I adore baked goods made with almond flour. Adds such wonderful texture and flavor to desserts. These brownies look awesome! And they’re easy to freeze? Well, that just sounds wonderful (and dangerous) :-)

  2. Thank you for gluten free recipes! 

    Beautiful words (and picture!) regarding your marriage. Loved this post.

  3. Love the idea of an easy gluten free recipe! Looks delicious. Hope you two had a wonderful weekend. Big hugs, friend! xo

  4. I always love reading your posts. So happy for you and your family. And these look so incredibly good!

  5. I’m a huge fan of using almond flour–these look so good! 

  6. I love using almond flour in baked goods, these looks awesome!

  7. Do you think these would work with Splenda or Stevia instead of sugar?.. my daughter is a type 1 diabetic and think these would be a great treat for her!

    • No, I think you really need to use sugar. Let me know if you try it though, and if it turned out!

    • Try to use coconut palm sugar. Its lower glycemic, tastes like brown sugar, and works perfectly well in every baked good I’ve tried it in!

    • Try using Xylitol. I love it. It’s a lot like sugar. 1:1 and is approved for diabetics. I’m not a fan of stevia. Good luck!

  8. I made these with Swerve and they turned out great.

  9. Does anyone have the carb count on this?

  10. Is there Nutrition information on this? Carbs?

  11. In your ingredients you list almond flour but in  your directions you say almond meal. Which is it? I’ve heard that they produce different results. 

  12. Could this be made sans chopped almonds? 

  13. Props to you for the 25 years, congratulations! These brownies look really good too, I’ll have to try them out :)

  14. These were a huge hit and I am so glad to be able to freeze them too. Thank you for sharing.

  15. Doesn’t say when to put in the almond extract. I assume with the vanilla?

  16. Do you think it’d work to use coconut oil instead of butter? We are dairy free here now. 

    • Rachelle, I have not tried this recipe with coconut oil, so I hesitate to say it works! If you try it, come back and let me know :)

  17. Do you think this would taste good without almond extract? I don’t have any!

  18. Can i substitute the butter with something healthier like coconut oil? 

  19. I just made these! They dont look like your picture at all, but they are fantastic!
    I subbed pecans and Erythritol (1 1/3 cup)
    Fir walnuts and sugar, they are now keto friendly and like i said Fantastic!! Thanks so much!

    I also added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, not sure if it did anything or not..lol
