This is a repost from last year. I made these a few times last year, but never got around to actually taking photos of them. These brownies are wonderful.
At the beginning of our primal/paleo journey, this was the first baked good I made after our first 30 days strict. My husband has a huge sweet tooth, and when he proclaimed them better than grain- and refined-sweetener-filled brownies, I knew they were a hit.
I made them again today to photograph them as I hadn't had sweetener or chocolate lying around in a long time and finally got around to purchasing some, and also to celebrate our four year anniversary. Not a bad excuse to make them ;)
Coconut Flour Brownies
Adapted from: original recipe
6 ½ oz good dark chocolate (72%+)
4 1/2 oz butter (one stick + one tablespoon)
¾ cup granulated sweetener of choice
1/2 t vanilla extract
6 T coconut flour
1/2 t sea salt
1 c chopped walnuts/mix-ins
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment for easy removal.
Melt butter and chocolate together in a saucepan over low heat.
Remove from heat, and add sweetener of choice. Let cool before adding vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking until fluffy.
Stir in flour, salt, and walnuts.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until tester comes out mostly clean (the top may appear undercooked or shiny).
Cool in pan for at least 10-15 minutes, then lift the slab out by the parchment.
Cut into 16 squares and enjoy!
