These brownies are seriously dangerous. They’re too good. I swear, neither one of us could tell the difference between these and “conventional” brownies–except for the fact these don’t make you feel like poo after you eat them. I made 2 batches in two days and….they’re all gone. Oops.
Besides the fact that these are completely gluten free; you could leave out the sugar in the brownies and be almost 100% Paleo. Try and find chocolate chips with the highest percentage of cocoa. The higher the percentage the less sugar in the chocolate. If you can’t find a good quality chocolate chip, you could always chop up a chocolate bar instead.
- 1 c almond butter
- 1/2 c canned coconut milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 t vanilla extract
- 1/4 t salt
- 1/3 c cocoa powder
- 1/4 c sugar (optional or sweetener of choice)
- 1/3 c chocolate chips (use the highest % cocoa you can find, around 70% is good)
- 1/3 c chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.
In a bowl whisk together the almond butter, coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract and salt. Then add the cocoa powder, sugar, and chocolate chips.
