Okay, okay, our last peanut and chocolate post for awhile – we promise! But we couldn’t resist creating this nostalgic recipe of Peanut Brownies. A traditionally gluten and sugar laden treat, we gave this a healthy makeover and we are obsessed.
These are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, a result of using our gorgeous Organic Sunflower Seed Flour. Sunflower Seed Flour is a cheaper alternative to almond meal, and packs a protein punch too. It’s a great nut free option, especially for the kids lunchbox. We love Sunflower Seed Flour because it directly replaces almond meal in any recipe, which is handy since it’s a lot cheaper! These cookies are the perfect 3pm treat for a little nostalgia, and a lot of satisfaction.
