Have I told you how much I love peanut butter powder? I use it in delicious healthy snacks like these crunchy peanut butter protein bites and this protein-packed, low-carb chocolate peanut butter smoothie. And yes, I even mix it with the recommended amount of water and use it like I would “normal” peanut butter—on rice cakes, toast and semisweet chocolate chips.

Purely Inspired powdered peanut butter is the secret to these gluten-free fudgy flourless chocolate brownies. (I should throw in some commas there but stylistically I like the name better without them.)

I’m thinking next time I need to make a peanut butter frosting using powdered peanut butter and slather it atop the flourless brownies. It’s a pretty genius way to pack more protein into my diet.

I was surprised how rich and chocolaty these brownies were considering there’s no flour or refined sugar. Instead, this flourless chocolate brownie recipe features honey and cocoa powder with the aforementioned peanut butter powder. Oh, and a handful of mini semisweet chocolate chips for good measure.

Don’t be thrown by the dry, crumbly consistency of the batter before adding the water, honey and vanilla. It will moisten up enough for easy spreading in the pan. Once baked, the consistency of these fudgy flourless chocolate brownies is a mix between a dense cake and a brownie. I’d say they lean a little more the direction of cake.

Cake. Brownie. I’ll eat ’em no matter the consistency.
