As I have posted time and time again, I am not a huge fan of desserts.
Chocolate could sit in front of me for days without me having the slightest desire to eat it.
But being a chef, you are required to bake things for your clients, and thus this recipe was created. I like when a dessert has an element of savory to it…and when it comes to chocolate, nothing pairs better than a flakey sea salt. My absolute favorite salt, is Maldon Salt – it’s flakey, delicate and perfect for desserts. It’s a little less harsh than a typical Sea Salt and truly lends itself to being chocolate’s perfect savory companion.
These brownies are fantastic in that they’re flourless (so completely Gluten Free), they’re easy, made in 1 bowl (easy cleanup) and are super fudgey! The peanut butter plays a very small role in terms of the taste – there’s not a huge peanut flavor coming through, rather it’s a subtle undertone of peanuts which really works together with the chocolate and Maldon.
