Paleo Brownies Recipe!

Well folks, we did it. The ultimate test: Paleo Brownies. We were nervous about it. After much contemplation and moral support, we were able to rally together and whip up a batch of these brownies, which are truly inspirational. We didn't know if we could handle a batch of bad brownies. It had the potential to make me swear off Paleo forever and head to the nearest Sonic for a 99 cent heart attack milkshake. Much to our relief, these taste like hot chocolatey goodness because of the cocoa powder inside of them. Enjoy and eat responsibly.



INGREDIENTS:

6 Tbsp. Canola Oil
2 eggs
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/4 c. coconut flour
1-2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut for topping(optional)
Ground nuts for topping (optional)

Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl except for the coconut topping. In a loaf pan (it doesn't make very many brownies), spray with Canola cooking spray. Add batter. Sprinkle batter with unsweetened coconut. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Serve with berries on top. This is like hot chocolate on a plate; you're welcome. :)

  1. Stumbled across this while searching for a paleo brownie recipe- thanks for posting it. I kind of suck at baking but in my attempts have learned that coconut flour is SUPER absorbant and high-fiber so typically recipes that include it need a lot of eggs... 2 seems shy. I might try this one with at least 4 eggs. Also, this recipe would be even better with coconut oil vs canola. Check out why canola oil isn't ideal for human consumption (and why I presume if there is ever a re-print of The Paleo Diet, it'd be off the list of Paleo foods): http://www.balancedbites.com/2010/06/canola-oil-may-be-paleo-diet-approved.html

    Happy foraging!
