Brownie Bites with Nut Drizzle

I had the hardest time thinking of a name for these little bits of heaven. I cut them into smaller sizes than a typical brownie because sometimes you just need something small to satisfy that sweet tooth!
I wanted a brownie unlike the other recipes that I’ve tried before, one with a peanut drizzle. This is easy to sub your favorite nut butter, almond, sunflower, cashew…the possibilities are endless. Even though I tend to eat more almond butter than any other type of nut butter, I occasionally CRAVE peanut butter and chocolate even though I rarely eat it.
