    • 5 oz Low Carb Milk Chocolate Chips
    • 1 tbsp Mild Cooking Oil, like liquid coconut or vegetable oil

      Instructions

      1. Heat oven to 325°F. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment. 
      2. In a microwave safe bowl, heat butter for 30 to 45 seconds or until completely melted. Add in the 4 oz chocolate chips, stir gently and set aside to let the chocolate slowly melt. 
      3. In a large bowl combine the almond flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, and sweetener. Stir in the egg, heavy cream and vanilla until a sticky batter forms. 
      4. Stir the chocolate and butter mixture until smooth: add to the brownie batter and mix well. 
      5. Working quickly, scoop the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is still slightly shiny. Let cool completely to set. 
      6. For the Topping: Melt the chocolate chips by heating in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second increments. Stir in the peanut butter and oil and mix until smooth. 
      7. Slowly add the cereal 1 bag and a time, turning to coat in the chocolate. Spread over the cooled brownies and refrigerate. Set at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving!
