Sarah
These fudgy, paleo brownies are made without the refined white sugar, bleached flour, and inflammatory oils that often accompany "boxed brownies."

Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2/3 cup cocao powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder see note for paleo baking powder recipe
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Mix together the eggs, vanilla, almond butter, avocado oil, and coconut sugar until well combined.
  • Add the almond flour, cocao powder, baking soda and sea salt to the wet mixture until combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix. Pour the batter into a parchment lined 8.5 inch by 8.5 inch glass square pan. Bake at 350 degress for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out almost clean. (Mine were perfect right at about 32 minutes).
  • Wait 20 minutes before slicing and ENJOY!

Notes

You can use a different-sized square pan, but watch the time to ensure the brownies don't burn!
*Note: If paleo, baking powder is technically not allowed because it contains cornstarch. I don't mind because it is a negligible amount. If strictly paleo you can make an easy 3 ingredient paleo baking powder using this recipe from wickedspatula.com.
