Slices of Almond Butter and Jelly Brownies.

I am a sucker for almond flour brownies. From brookies, to pumpkin brownies, to mug brownies, you can use almond flour to make the most delicious brownie recipes.

Almond flour works beautifully in these almond butter and jelly brownies. I don’t know if I’ve loved the combo of almond butter and jelly more than in these almond flour brownies recipe. Hello swirls of almond butter and berry jelly!

The salty almond butter pairs so well with the sweet rich chocolate brownie underneath it and the hint of sweet berry jam swirled all around. It’s dessert perfection if you ask me.

Recipe ingredients

Ingredients needed to make almond butter and jelly brownies.
  • olive oil– a good quality extra-virgin olive oil is best.
  • dairy-free chocolate chips– use any brand or type of chocolate that works for you. If you are looking for Paleo chocolate, check out HU Chocolate.
  • coconut sugar– this has a lower glycemic index than other sugars.
  • eggs– this helps bind the brownies together.
  • almond flour– use blanched almond flour because it is more refined than almond meal and leads to a better texture in baked goods.
  • baking soda– this helps the brownies rise.
  • honey– any type of honey works, but I like to use raw honey.
  • almond butter– make sure to use a creamy one without added sugar.
  • jam/ jelly– use one without added sugar. I found the St. Dalfour brand to be the best option at my grocery store.

Ingredients
  

Brownie Ingredients:

Jam/ Almond butter swirl ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup berry jam (without added sugar, I like the St. Dalfour brand)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Make sure your oven rack is in the upper third of the oven. Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add the olive oil and chocolate chips. Microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring well after each time in the microwave. It took about 1 minute for my chocolate to melt this way. Add the coconut sugar and vanilla, and whisk.
  • Let the chocolate mixture cool a bit, and then add one egg and whisk until well mixed. Add the second egg, and whisk. Then add the third egg and whisk. The mixture should thicken by this point.
  • In another bowl, add the flour, baking soda and salt, and mix.
  • Then, pour the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture, and mix well. Pour the brownie mixture into the pan and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, add the 2 Tbs honey, ¼ cup almond butter, ¼ tsp salt and ½ tsp vanilla and mix.
  • Then, spoon the almond butter mixture and the jam on top of the brownie batter in the pan. There should by clumps of each on top. Use a knife to swirl the jam and almond butter together.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Notes

  • Instead of olive oil, you can use avocado oil or coconut oil.
  • Instead of coconut sugar, you can use white sugar ( but it will no longer be Paleo).
  • Instead of almond butter, you can use any nut butter of your choice.
