They are the quintessential American treat that we simply can’t live without. They being Brownies of course! So, as I live my American Dream, I felt it was my duty to concoct a Paleo Brownie recipe that rivaled the traditional wheat-flour and refined-sugar based treats. Thankfully, it worked!
This brownie recipe is absolutely indulgent and is 100% gluten-free.
1 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 shakes sea salt
Half a slab of organic dark salted-chocolate
1/3 cup organic dark chocolate chips
7 dates, pitted
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 tablespoon coconut oil for greasing
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Pulse the flour, baking soda and sea salt in a food processor.
Add all the chocolate and the dates and pulse until gritty.
Add the eggs, coconut oil and vanilla essence and pulse until well combined.
Scoop the mixture into a greased baking dish; 6 x 6 makes thicker brownies, 8 x 8 makes for thinner bites.
The mixture will be slightly spongy from the coconut flour, so press down firmly until evenly spread.
Place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
For an added indulgence and a perfect finish, top with Chocolate Sauce and then place in the refrigerator to set for about an hour.
These brownies can be enjoyed once cooled, or kept for days in the refrigerator (if you have the willpower to make them last!)
Enjoy this guilt-free indulgence,
