almond butter brownie

Tonight I was totally craving dessert (nothing new there), so I decided to experiment with some almond butter brownie recipes. What resulted was so magical I just had to post about it IMMEDIATELY. 

No seriously, these are so amazingly tasty and simple I was obligated to share it with everyone. The recipe can be doubled if you like but in an effort to minimize damage by finishing them all in a few minutes (which will happen), it purposely only yields enough for 1-3 people. :)

Make with caution…they are that good. 

PS- The Justin’s Vanilla almond butter I used really gave them an out of this world flavor- I highly recommend!
