Allergen-friendly plant-based brownies!

  • 1/2 cup Dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup Vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract

Seed Butter Swirl:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan.
    2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, vegan butter or coconut oil, and cocoa. Melt in the microwave for 60-90 seconds until melted and smooth. Mix well.
    3. Stir in the vanilla and sugar, then stir in the milk until smooth.
    4. Add the gluten-free flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl with the chocolate mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in extra chocolate chips, if desired.
    5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
    6. Make the swirl: In two small bowls, add Healthy Crunch Chocolate Seed Butter to each bowl along with equal distributions of the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
    7. Drop spoonfuls of Healthy Crunch Crunchy Seed Butter mixtures on top of the brownies, then swirl it with a butter knife.
