  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, to sprinkle on top


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line an 8×8-inch square pan with parchment paper. Lightly grease with nonstick spray (I used coconut oil spray).
  2. Microwave chocolate chips in a large, microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir with a rubber spatula, and heat for an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute, until melted.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, mix in almond butter, cocoa powder, and coconut sugar until smooth.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract, salt and eggs. Combine until smooth.
  5. Pour brownie batter into pan and smooth over with spatula, leveling out surface of batter.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the brownies are set in the center. Be careful not to over-bake.
  7. Remove from heat and cool for approximately 15 minutes before cutting.
  8. Brownies can be stored in an airtight container.
