Flourless fudge brownies made with JIF Almond Butter
Ingredients
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate, chopped (Hershey’s Dark)
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used 3 T. Natural and 3 T. Dark)
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso powder, optional
  • Tiny pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg plus 2 tablespoons lightly beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2.6 ounces (1/4 cup plus half a generous tablespoon) JIF almond butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the butter over medium until it melts. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let the chocolate sit in the hot butter for about 2 minutes, then stir until melted and smooth. Stir in the cocoa powder, coffee, salt and vanilla.
  3. In a mixing bowl using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs. Gradually add the granulated sugar, beating constantly. Beat for about 5 minutes – mixture should be very frothy and light. Beat in the almond butter until smooth.
  4. Stir in the chocolate mixture. Divide mixture evenly among cupcake cups (they’ll be a little less than halfway full) and bake on center rack for 18 minutes or until they appear set.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. I let mine cool, then chilled them to help develop the fudgy texture.
Notes
For 24 brownies, double the recipe (that will be 3 eggs).
