Potluck Bites: Triple Chocolate *Gluten Free* Almond Butter Brownies ft. Big Spoon Roasters

Posted by on

As we all know, summer is approaching its inevitable end. For many of us at Thread + Seed, it's a time to express gratitude for all the fun the hot months have brought us. It's also a time when we squeeze in one last gathering of friends and family, before the hubbub of autumn speeds up our lives once again.

We joined with Tayler Coffin ( @taylereatseverything on Instagram) to present our Potluck Bites party. We invited some of our favorite beverage and pantry makers to share food and friends on our back patio. Check out the other recipes and memories as well!

Amber's Triple Chocolate *Gluten Free* Almond Brownies
featuring Big Spoon Roaster's Almond Butter


Since we opened our space in San Diego, Big Spoon Roasters has been one of our favorite pantry brands at both Thread + Seed and Graffiti Beach. We love the interesting flavors of nut butters created in small batches. The spreadable is a hit at all of our events, but we've all admitted to eating it by the spoonful straight out of the jar--it's just that good.

This recipe comes from Big Spoon's own Amber Milton, who works on the nut butter production team. These brownies need no introduction. They are gooey and chocolately, with just the right amount of nuttiness. Feel free to experiment with this recipe by trying a different variety of Big Spoon Nut Butters!
