Almond Flour Brownies

These brownies are the bomb-dot-com.  Seriously, they are so good, I could eat the whole pan!  I tried to make them with just honey as a sweetener and they aren’t nearly as good.  So I cheat when I make these and use Organic Cane Sugar.  They are grain/gluten free, but not primal.

Almond Flour Brownies

3/4 cup of almond flour

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 cup of organic cane sugar

1 tablespoon of honey

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 cup of butter melted

3/4 cup of 60% dark chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons of 60% dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together almond flour, salt, cocoa powder, sugar, and baking soda powder in a large bowl and set aside.

In a glass bowl, melt butter and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.  While the chocolate is melting, in another bowl, beat together eggs, vanilla, & honey.  Slowly pour the melted chocolate/butter mixture into the egg mixture.

Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly.  Pour the batter into a 8×8 inch square pan.  Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on the top and gently press into the batter.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, depending on how you like your brownies (cake like or fudge-y).  Let cool and enjoy!

***EDIT:  I now substitute the cane sugar & honey for 3/4 cup of coconut palm sugar.  I also like to mix in mini chocolate chips throughout the batter instead of sprinkling chips on top***
