Walnut Flour Almonds topped with Bitter Chocolate Ganache

Brownies are the perfect everyday treat. They are super easy to make, all the ingredients are easy to find and with a small bite you fill your chocolate/sweet cravings, plus everyone loves a fresh baked brownie. I woke up today with an incredible craving for brownies, but as you may know I love to share what I have baked with friends, and all of my friends are on a diet (a here-we-go-summer kind of diet) so I prepared this healthy version of an old time favorite using walnut flour instead of  whole wheat flour, using only 1 tablespoon of stevia and with bitter chocolate ganache that will add a chocolate punch (and all the chocolate benefits) without the extra calories.

    hi ana!
    these brownies sound amazing and will be trying them this
    weekend, but what size pan do you use?? pretty tiny, I’d guess…4X4? smaller? and should it be buttered or parchment papered?
    thnx for sharing some fantastic recipes. happy that I found your blog!

      Thanks sassygirl! I used a tiny one because I like baking small batches, if you want your brownie to be extra shareable (big) just double your recipe. Hope you like it!

    when do you add the walnut flour?

    • Ana Fernández Reply

      Hi Alexis! Right after the butter and vanilla and just before the sugar. Enjoy it!
