For the brownies

  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate (I used 77% cacao), chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the pomegranate berry compote

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate juice
  • vanilla ice cream for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a 8x8 square baking dish with parchment or foil. Set aside.

  2. Combine almond meal, cocoa powder, salt, and espresso powder in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.

  3. Melt butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, heating in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Mine took about 1½ minutes total. Let cool slightly. Whisk together butter and chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.

  4. Add almond mixture and mix until just combined. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until edges are firm and center is still slightly loose. These are very delicate when warm. Cool completely in the pan before cutting. I let mine cool overnight!

  5. When ready to serve, make the compote. Add berries and pomegranate juice to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to medium/medium-high and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, breaking up the big chunks of berries. You'll know it's done when the mixture is deep in color and syrupy. Serve the brownies with vanilla ice cream and the warm berry compote.
