Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for greasing the pan

1/2 cup almond butter 

2 large eggs

3/4 cup sugar 

1/4 cup prune puree 

2 teaspoons vanilla 

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour 

1/2 teaspoon fine salt 

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips 

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped 

1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8-by-8-inch pan with butter. Cut a piece of parchment to hang over 2 sides of the pan.
  2. Mix together the butter and almond butter by hand in a large mixing bowl. Beat the eggs in a small bowl, then add them to the butter mixture. Mix in the sugar, prune puree and vanilla.
  3. Whisk together the cocoa powder, flour and salt in a separate bowl. Gently stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Mix by hand just until combined; do not over-mix. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the flaky sea salt.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the brownies comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool, and then cut into squares.
