40 minutes
Calories 190kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 erythritol (I used Swerve)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (cubed)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Using butter, grease a 9x9 inch baking pan, set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt cubed butter in the microwave, about 1 minute.
  • Add cocoa powder and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Stir in erythritol and continue to stir until fully incorporated, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and vanilla together.
  • Add chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Add almond flour and walnuts and stir in until flour is completely incorporated and walnuts are evenly distributed.
  • Spoon batter into greased baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Brownies will be moist and fudge-like, so be careful not to over bake! In a microwave safe bowl, add peanut butter and melt in the microwave, about one minute (see notes on how to not burn the peanut butter).
  • Smooth peanut butter over brownies evenly.
  • Cool completely before cutting into 20 squares.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
  • Notes You may see some butter come to the top of the brownies.
  • Gently pat the brownies with a paper towel if this happens Most of it will set in the brownies once they start to cool.Try melting the peanut butter in 30 second increments, stirring in-between, to prevent it from burning/clumping.
  • I cool these brownies quicker by placing them in the refrigerator.
  • I also store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container stacked on top of each other, with wax paper in-between.
