Peanut Butter Brownies (grain free, dairy free, GAPS-legal)

Rebecca’s letter this week is “B” so for our baking project we decided on brownies.  And since we’re doing our GAPS family challenge this week I wanted to be sure they were GAPS legal.  I’ve made a couple versions of grain free peanut butter bars/brownies before.  But one used sugar and the other didn’t turn out that great.  So I kind of combined the recipes and modified it a bit.  I think I came up with a good compromise.  These are super simple to make.  And we all like them.  I did add dark chocolate chips…because what is a brownie without chocolate? 😛  But I think we added too many.  I would have liked to taste more of the peanut butter/brownie and less chocolate.  Maybe we’ll just have to make another batch 🙂  These would be good without anything added.  Or you could add some safer ingredients like coconut, raisins or chopped nuts.  In any case it’s always nice to have a little treat once in a while.  I do have to be careful with these since I used boughten peanut butter (not soaked nuts).  And I just can’t do too much nuts/nut butter at a time.

Grain Free Peanut Butter Brownies

1 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chiops, coconut, raisins, chopped nuts (optional)

Combine nut butter, honey, eggs and salt in bowl.  Stir until well mixed.  Stir in any add-ins.  Pour into 8″ or 9″ square baking pan.  Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

    Great idea to make brownies for B week. We may have to borrow this idea for this afternoon. 🙂 We have been doing letters each week, as well… though we’re not going in order. I’ve been letting Carson pick the letter of the week. We are doing B this week, as well (we did S last week and M the week before). We have been learning about bubbles for our B week this morning… for some science. We’re going to make some homemade bubbles in a bit after building time. B is a fun letter with so many things associated with it. 🙂

    Sounds like you guys have some great lessons!

    We’re headed to Bordine’s soon – haha! Carson gets a kick out of doing all the letter stuff, though. And he loves Bordine’s. 🙂 They have a nice play structure that keeps him busy – and it’s right next to the fruit trees that I am interested in. Perfect! 😉
