Recipe Card


  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons creamy natural peanut butter


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line an 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Add butter and chocolate chips to a large heat safe bowl and place over a simmering pan of water (make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl) and stir until smooth and completely melted. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  • Step 3

    Add sugar, eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth.

  • Step 4

    Add almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and whisk until well combined.

  • Step 5

    Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, and dollop the peanut butter is teaspoon-sized spoonfuls all over the surface of the batter. Using a skewer or butter knife, swirl the batter with the peanut butter using an up and down motion until your desired look is achieved.

  • Step 6

    Bake from about 35 minutes, or until the top is set and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool slightly before cutting and serving.
