Fudgy Paleo Brownies

Just made these. First paleo baking experiment! I have to say they came out very good. They are not as good as your traditional brownies but I think they can keep you from missing them. Next time I might add more honey — they were a little bittersweet for me. I also used a tablespoon of arrowroot powder because I’ve been using it in other paleo recipes and read it is great for baked goods.
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil (I used Nutiva unrefined) 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used Lake Champion) 
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate (I used Sunspire Organic Baking Bar) 
  • 3/4 cup honey 
  • 2 eggs, room temperature 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (I used Arrowhead Mills) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon fair trade espresso powder (optional, but recommended)
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with non-stick spray and set aside. 
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine coconut oil, cocoa powder, and unsweetened chocolate. Heat oven medium heat, whisking until mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. 
  3. Take off the heat and stir in the honey. This should cause the mixture to slightly thicken. 
  4. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well. 
  5. Add in the coconut flour, salt, and espresso powder. Mix until no dry pockets remain. 
  6. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20-23 minutes. 
  7. Store in the fridge after the first day to keep fresh.
