If you want to treat your family to a special treat on Valentine's Day, but hope to keep their sugar consumption reserved to Conversation Hearts, forgo fancy icing and add a pretty protein boost to a brownie bite. Almond butter is a delicious and nutritious paste that can be substituted for traditional peanut butter on sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, and used as a healthy decoration on desserts.
To check out my guide to making these yourself,
1. Package of pre-made brownie bites or homemade mini brownies
2. Almond butter (or peanut butter if your child has been tested and isn't allergic)
3. Carob or chocolate chips for decoration
Dress the brownie bites by spreading a thin amount of almond butter on top as a frosting alternative. Make sure to only put a little dab of butter so as not to overpower the brownie.
