Almond Butter Brownies

I'm more tempted to call these cookies rather than brownies, but to be honest they are so good I don't really care about the name! I'll go with a cookie-brownie :) 

You already know how much I love sweets, so there's no point in telling you just how many times I have made these in a period of 7 days... because you can probably guess it by now. 

When I was at a health conference a couple years ago I was able to listen to food babe speak and she was incredible! I checked out her recipes and adapted this from her, so she deserves most of the credit :) 

It's safe to say that these will be your new favorite snack, dessert, and maybe even breakfast. I've made them with 1/2 the amount of sugar and they were still delicious, but most people prefer them on the sweeter side. Try them for yourself and let me know what you think!! It doesn't get much easier than this recipe right here!
