  • 125g unsalted butter, chopped into equal-sized cubed
  • 3/4 cup golden Lakanto
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g dark chocolate (90%), chopped into chunks
  • Flakey sea salt, to serve


Preheat the oven to 180C and line a square brownie tin with baking paper. To make brown butter, place butter in a pot over medium heat and allow to melt. Stir constantly for 5-7 minutes. The butter will foam quite a bit, then towards the end, it will to look brown and will smell nutty and toasted. Transfer to a large bowl immediately to ensure it doesn’t burn. Add the golden Lakanto and stir. Set aside. In another bowl whisk together the almond meal, baking powder and salt. When the butter mixture has cooled slightly (warm is fine but as long as it's not hot), stir the eggs and vanilla in. Add the almond mixture to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Spread into the lined brownie tin and sprinkle over chocolate chunks and sea salt. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Leave in the tin to cool and sprinkle with flakey sea salt to serve.
