Paleo Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Brownies

Happy early 27th Birthday to meeeee!

Disclaimer: there are eggs in here!  Vegan?  No prob!  Sub in ground chia seeds mixed with water for a healthier boost (tip: 1 TBSP chia seeds or ground chia seeds plus 3 TBSP water=1 "egg")

Not very sweet, but satisfies that chocolate craving!  Also, the almond flour will lend a nice nutty sweetness to this treat.

Paleo Brownies


3/4 cup almond flour
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 mashed banana
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
3 eggs (I did 1 egg and 3 egg whites)
optional: 3 tablespoons mini rice chocolate chips


1.  Mix dry ingredients together; set aside.

2.  Melt coconut oil, add in mashed banana, stirring in vanilla and eggs last.

3.  Add wet to dry, folding chocolate chips in last if desired.

4.  Bake at 350 degrees in a parchment lined 8x8" dish for 25-32 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out pretty clean.  Let cool, remove brownies by gently pulling out parchment paper, cut into squares and serve!

Party treat idea:  Cut into tiny squares, and serve warm with a dollop or two of non-dairy coconut ice cream on top.  Really partying it up?  Add some gluten-free veggie-colored sprinkles!
