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!

(That’s Alder, our Whoodle, with his nose in everything!)

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!
