grain free chocolate fudge brownies by kalejunkie



3 eggs (I love Vital Farms pasture raised organic eggs)
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tb coconut flour
2 tb melted coconut oil
1 1/4 cup nut butter of choice (I alternate between almond butter and peanut butter)
1/4 tsp salt
2 bars dairy free chocolate (one bar gets melted and goes in the batter, and the other bar gets melted and drizzled on the top. For this recipe, I used 2 bars Hu Kitchen Simple Chocolate Bar)

It's been a LONG time since I craved brownies. Maybe because I spend all day thinking about cookies, muffins, and toast. But today that chocolate craving struck so hard, and there was only one solution: BROWNIES. 

Today I am sharing my favorite recipe for GRAIN FREE BROWNIES. And of course I added chocolate drizzles on top, because like I said...the chocolate craving was real. You are in for the best treat of your life with this recipe. 


makes 16 brownie squares


Preheat oven to 350.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. Pro tip: Coat the inside of the pan with oil before laying down the parchment paper, so that it sticks.
In a small bowl, whisk together the 3 eggs and set aside.
Next, melt one bar of chocolate. You can do this using the fancy double boiler method, but to save time, I just use the good old fashioned microwave, microwaving in 30 second increments.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the coconut sugar, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, melted chocolate, eggs, salt, and nut butter, until you the batter is almost clump free (if you are using a chunky nut butter, there will still be some chunks and that is ok). 
Last, stir in the coconut flour.
Pour batter evenly into the baking dish. 
Bake for 25-26 minutes. 
After the brownies have cooled, melt the remaining bar of chocolate, and drizzle on top.
Cut into 16 squares.
