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.
