Kara wanted to call this recipe F*cking Awesome in My Mouth. While that is an accurate description, I didn't think it was very search engine friendly. Two of those words together in the same search brings in a completely different demographic. While I'm sure there is some overlap with porn and Crossfit, that's not what I'm going for here.
I made this up last night in preparation for a Chili and Wings Throwdown we're hosting on Sunday afternoon. The original plan was to make a paleo alternative to cornbread, but somehow I ended up making a decadent brownie dessert instead. Either way everyone wins.

Microwave the jar of almond butter for about 30 seconds to soften it, and then pour the almond butter into a large bowl. Add the eggs and mix with a hand mixer until smooth.

The batter with be very thick and sticky.
