Creamy coconut filling, whole almonds and rich chocolate ganache, all atop low carb, grain-free brownies. Almond Joy gets a healthy makeover!
Oh yeah, I went there. I not only went there, I went very far into “there” as well. I took a famous and well-loved American candy bar and I turned it into brownies. Not only did I turn it into brownies, I made it healthy, sugar-free and grain-free to boot. Sacrilege! How could I dare to mess with an American classic? Well, I dared because I have a sweet tooth. It’s a chocolate tooth and a coconut tooth and an almond tooth and it was crying out for almond joy goodness. It didn’t take much crying for me to give in. I am a sucker like that.
But Almond Joy was made for brownies. Brownies are like a blank slate. Well, perhaps more like a chocolate slate, and they are crying out to be adorned with toppings and fancy glazes and such. And what is fancier than a creamy coconut filling, whole almonds and a rich chocolate ganache topping?
I had such fun with these low carb Almond Joy Brownies. I made them as the finale to a Super Bowl get together and they were a hit. And I made absolutely sure to pay homage to the original and get one whole almond per brownie.
They are so rich and delicious, you won’t miss the real thing!
