Healthy peanut butter brownies
- 150g coconut oil
- 130g peanut butter
- 360g sugar-free dark chocolate chips (240g+120g)
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1/2 tsp Stevia
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 225g gluten-free oat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 240ml almond milk
- Preheat the oven to 160C. Line a deep rectangle baking pan with parchment (I used 33x23cm).
- In a medium saucepan melt together coconut oil, peanut butter, and 240g chocolate chips until fully melted.
- In a large bowl whisk egg yolks with stevia and vanilla extract. Slowly pour the chocolate liquid into the yolks, while whisking constantly.
- Gradually add oat flour with soda into chocolate mixture, alternating with almond milk, until smooth.
- In a clean dry bowl whisk egg whites with salt until stiff peaks. Carefully fold them into the batter.
- Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 35-40 minutes until dry to touch and the wooden pick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips (120g) over the top of a still hot brownie. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes, then spread melted chips with a spatula or a back of the spoon.
These moist crumbly chocolatey brownies with a distinct peanut butter taste are a true guilt-free pleasure!
The healthier version of a beloved dessert is made with Stevia instead of sugar, gluten-free oat flour, almond milk instead of a regular milk, and a coconut oil instead of a regular vegetable oil or butter.
Indulge yourself with a piece (or two) without feeling guilty!
