Hey there, fellow paleo enthusiast! I'm here to satisfy your sweet tooth with a scrumptious recipe for paleo brownies made with coconut flour. Get ready to indulge in a guilt-free treat that will have you coming back for seconds!
Coconut flour is a fantastic alternative to traditional flours because it's gluten-free, grain-free, and packed with fiber. Plus, it adds a delightful hint of coconut flavor to your baked goods. So, let's dive right into this delicious recipe!
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease an 8x8-inch baking dish with coconut oil or line it with parchment paper.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set this dry mixture aside for now.
3. In a separate large bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix everything together until well combined and smooth.
4. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until you have a thick, smooth batter. Make sure there are no lumps!
5. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish and spread it evenly.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be careful not to overbake, as we want these brownies to be fudgy and moist.
7. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the baking dish before cutting them into squares. This will help them hold their shape.
Pro tip: If you want to take these brownies to the next level, feel free to add some chopped nuts, dark chocolate chunks, or even a sprinkle of sea salt on top before baking. Get creative and make them your own!
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy these delectable coconut flour brownies. They're perfect for satisfying your chocolate cravings while sticking to your paleo lifestyle. Remember, healthy eating doesn't have to be boring, and these brownies are proof of that!
