Oh, what the fudge! It’s almond flour brownies!!
I am a bit partial to brownies than to cakes. Though baking cakes is an extremely satisfying hobby, here is why I like brownies a bit more. They are more forgiving, indulgently satisfying and always ready to show up when you try to get a midnight snack. They are more forgiving as they are not exacting recipes like a cake or really don’t have to show up a rise. It is far fudgier and rewarding when they don’t!! They successfully coat a good amount of tofu or beans in chocolate making them a bit more useful. They smile when the snack box opens to find a piece of almond flour brownie in it is the most rewarding.
So here is to yet another post on brownies. (Earlier we had done tofu brownies!!)
One bowl, no fuss brownies.
I have tried quite a lot of brownie recipes. The ones which call for hot water, the ones which have a lot of ingredients in them so on and so forth. I do find that by the end of it my washing up pile takes far longer than it takes to make and eat the brownies. So here is the simplest, minimal wash up guaranteed fudgy almond flour brownies that you want to keep making often.

With the almond flour brownies as the base recipe, you can create a lot of variations in flavour. Here are some useful ideas.
Pretzels- we have done pretzel topped brownies in the images here. I like the flip in texture as you bite through them.
Nut butter swirls– this you have to try. The best I found was homemade sun butter. The swirls have an extra nuttiness to the brownies.
Sea salt flakes- most brownie experts will tell you this is the best. Certainly, the salt provides a deeper chocolate flavour. Don’t use table salt it doesn’t do justice to the recipe.
Jam drops -tiny little bits of a baked jam against the dark chocolate almond flour brownie is gourmet. Try this berry jam recipe to use with it.
Storing the brownies
Now that we have set you up with these oh so chocolaty!! brownies there is no going back. The brownies stay good in an airtight box for 3 to 5 days. The question is will they really last that long between all the hands that try to get some?
If you are making a huge batch, store the airtight box in the refrigerator. The brownies do freeze well if you are making a stash, however, they lose their fudginess.
