PB2 Flourless Chocolate Brownies {gluten free, low refined sugar}

Good morning!

Here's something to brighten up your Monday... flourless, low refined sugar chocolate brownies made with PB2! Personally, they brightened up my whole weekend. ;-)


These are very easy and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand. Never heard of PB2? Well, I'm about to change your life. Here's a post I did on it a couple of years ago.

(Not pictured: egg, chocolate chips, salt, vanilla)

These brownies are super moist, surprisingly cakey, and very rich and chocolatey just like a "regular" brownie. You really wouldn't know they're flourless. I have a couple of other healthy brownie options like these gluten free chocolate avocado brownies and these vegan chocolate raspberry brownies. Which is your favorite?
