Things I can pronounce and know what they are. Bonus!

As you can see, I was sent four different mixes – brownies, cookies, chocolate cake and yellow cake.

I debated which to make first. I got them the day before I had a race, so I chose brownies that I could take and share with everyone.

Lets talk about how easy these are to make too.

The only ingredients needed were eggs and butter. Score!

In an effort to boost up the nutritional values, I came up with a slightly different recipe.

———–

Coconut Almond Brownies
Serves 16

Ingredients:
- 1 box Immaculate Baking brownie mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 6 tsp almond butter, divided

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. And lightly coat a 9×9 pan with nonstick spray.
2. Add the brownie mix, eggs, and coconut oil to a bowl. Mix until combined. The batter will be thick.

3. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Transfer the batter to your pan and press down so that it’s distributed evenly. Then place almond butter, 1 tsp at a time all over the batter.

5. Take a knife and swirl the almond butter into the batter.

6. Bake for 27-30 minutes.

Macros (per 1/16 of the prepared recipe):

Everyone loved them!

What’s your favorite kind of brownie?
