Almond Butter Skillet Brownie

This almond butter skillet brownie by blogger Katiebird Bakes is so fudgy and rich, you’d never know it’s completely gluten-free and flourless. Get the ice cream and a few spoons ready – skillet brownies were made for digging in.

  • 1 cup almond butter (natural kind works best)

  • 3/4 cup Domino® Golden Sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (dairy or plant-based)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips

Bake Mode

Prevent your screen from going dark as you follow along.

Prep Time : 15 minutes / Cook Time : 25 minutes / Yields: 1 12-inch skillet brownie (approx 8 servings)

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Step 2

In a 12-inch cast iron skillet*, stir together almond butter, Domino® Golden Sugar and milk of choice until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, making sure each one is mixed in completely before continuing. Add vanilla extract and stir again.

Step 3

Stir in cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda and salt until a smooth brownie batter forms.

Step 4

Stir in chopped dark chocolate until evenly distributed, then sprinkle additional chocolate on top if desired.

Step 5

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until top of skillet brownie is shiny and edges are puffed. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out nearly clean. Bake closer to 20 minutes if you want a gooey center.

Step 6

Serve skillet brownie warm with vanilla ice cream over top, and dig right in with a spoon.

Chef's Tip
  • If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, you can mix the batter in a bowl and then bake in an 8×8 inch square pan. Add at least 5 minutes to the baking time to compensate for the thicker brownie.
  • Store any leftovers covered in the fridge for up to a week. Reheat individual servings in the microwave. If desired, you can bake the entire skillet brownie up to a day in advance and reheat in a 350F oven for 10 minutes to serve.
