Nutbutter Brownies- Perfect for Healthy Lunchboxes!

Grain free nutbutter brownie recipe

These nutbutter brownies are perfect for lunchboxes. They’re simple to make, I like to double the recipe and then portion them out to eat all week long.  Nut free school? Use sunbutter (sunflower seeds).  Need to save money? Use peanutbutter. Otherwise, I recommend cashew or almond butter- yum!  

Grain Free Nutbutter Brownie Recipe

1 cup nutbutter

1/2 cup honey

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste (this will vary depending on whether your nutbutter is salted or not)

Fat for greasing 8×8 pan (butter, ghee, coconut oil, etc)


Combine all ingredients.  Spread into greased pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until middle is barely set. Allow to cool for 10 minutes or more before cutting.

*tip: get a spatula wet to spread the sticky delicious batter into the pan- it will spread more easily with a slightly wet spatula.

  1. These look good, but I just have to say that I don’t think they are *brownies* if they don’t have some kind of chocolate in them. Probably more like blondies, or nutbutter bars.

  2. I made these last night, they are SO good! and so quick and easy!

  3. I made these and found them way too sweet, so I used 1/4 cup honey, and they came out much better (for my taste).

  4. This sounds delicious, but what about egg allergies? Any suggestions for a substitute?
