Flourless Sea Salt Brownie Recipe

gluten free brownies

I cannot even begin to tell you how perfect these flourless, gluten-free, dairy-free sea salt brownies are! They’re loaded with flavor & are made with clean ingredients that pack tons of nutrients. Almond flour & almond butter both provide healthy fats to keep you feeling full much longer, the dates are used to sweeten the brownies & are loaded with fiber, & the cacao powder even provides you with a significant amount of antioxidants. Guilt-free brownies? Sign me up. They’re perfect straight out of the oven or even warmed up later with some ice cream on top! These flourless brownies take less than 30 minutes to make including both prep & baking time. Feel free to top them with whatever you’d like but I highly recommend using the vegan ganache recipe listed below & some fresh chocolate shavings, sea salt & even food-grade dried rose petals if you have!
