Directions for brownie layer:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together almond butter, egg, carob molasses (or sweetener of choice) and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Add unsweetened cocoa, coconut flour and baking soda. Stir to combine. Spread into cups in a silicone cupcake pan (I used a silicone pan with heart shapes) and press evenly into each of 6 cups. Bake 10-12 minutes. They'll look soft & moist but will continue to cook. Let cool completely while you prepare the cookie dough layer.

Note: there will most likely be some cookie dough left. I took the opportunity to roll the leftover dough into balls to make Cookie Dough Bites. Keep them in the refrigerator for about a week or in the freezer for a longer period of time. Take out and thaw for an occasional delicious treat! You could also dip them in some Enjoy Life baking morsels melted with about a teaspoon of coconut oil to make some scrumptious cookie dough truffles!
