Soften the butter slightly and add the sugars to it. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add the flour, almond flour and cinnamon to the mixture and mix well. Mix the chopped chocolate and nuts into the mixture. Place 2 spoons of the mixture in a small oven-proof bowl. Bake at 180°C for 12-15min until it is light golden and soft to the touch. Serve immediately and top with peanut-butter ice-cream.
