Ready to have a delicious Halloween treat without feeling guilty? I bet you are, so make these Gluten-free Halloween Brownies with your kids using only almond butter, instead of regular flour!
Halloween is right around the corner so it’s time to share some Halloween treats with you this month. Growing up in Brazil I had never celebrated this cool and fun holiday just because it’s not traditional there. Well, some English schools organize little parties with the kids, but definitely Halloween is not party of the Brazilian culture, which is too bad!
However, since I immigrated to Canada I have learned to love this holiday and think it’s a great time to taste some fun treats. Don’t you think? But neither you nor your kids need to go crazy and have a sugar coma… hahhahaha. There are lots of healthy dessert options online such these gluten-free Halloween brownies that you can make with your kids and have fun!
The batter base of these brownies is almond butter instead of flour. It’s great to add more protein and omega 3 to your diet. These Gluten-free Halloween Brownies are also made with honey, which means it’s refined sugar-free too.
The best part about these brownies is that they’re very easy and quick to make. You just need to add all the ingredients in one single bowl, mix everything together, pour the batter into the greased 9 x 9 baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
While your gluten-free brownies are in the oven, you make the chocolate frosting by adding dark chocolate chips over simmering water and mix with almond milk. So easy and so delicious! Also, don’t forget to use some Halloween sprinkles on top of the brownies. They are so fun and will make the brownies perfect to this holiday. Enjoy!
