Almond Butter Brownie Thins

This recipe is my go-to when I'm having a sweet tooth, but don't want to load up on sugar. High sugar treats tend to make me feel fatigued, bloated, and at times even nauseous. That's why I love coming up with new treat ideas that keep the sugar low and are made with real, wholesome ingredients.

I created this recipe with my amazing friend Jacq Gould, founder of Find Your Inner Babe. We had so much fun making this one! I know you chocolate lovers will be hooked on this one ;)
