Almond Butter Chocolate Brownie Recipe

img_6626 My kids discovered Two Bite Brownies during a sleep over at Grandma’s this past weekend. They fell in love and the negotiations started for me to buy some as soon as they got home.  I decided we could come up with something just as tasty, but minus the refined sugar, flour and preservatives.  These came out amazing! I cut them up into small servings and froze half of them so we wouldn’t just gobble them all up! If you have little ones at home, try and get them involved in making the food if you can. :)

P.sS. Although they have whole food ingredients they are still a total treat!
