Flourless Almond Butter Brownies Recipe

This brownie is real simple to make. Making flourless desserts has been quite popular lately since there are many people out there who are allergic to gluten. Not to mention that many sources indicate that eating too much white flour is unhealthy (processedfreeamerica.org). Whether you believe it or not, it's good to try something different every once in awhile.
