Coconut Brownies

Brownies. I can't begin to tell you how much I love brownies. So much so, that when that time comes when I do get married- I'm quite certain I want brownies instead of cake for dessert. Maybe. We'll see ;)

I'm not sure I can even remember the last time I had a brownie because well, the typical brownie contains butter, maybe some milk and white flour. No-go for me. 

So I researched a few recipes for brownies made with coconut flour and was pretty satisfied with the turnout. I even had a piece with my breakfast this morning ;) 

These are one of my recipes that I call 'paleoish.' I wanted to use all honey for the sweetener but was worried about consistency so I added organic cane sugar too. I think honey would just make them more 'fudgy' and what's wrong with that? So, I may try that next time.

Coconut Brownies

1/3 cup coconut oil (fyi that when I refer to coconut oil, I'm talking about  Unrefined Virgin or Extra Virgin)
1/2 cup coconut flour (organic) 
1/2 cup cocoa flour (pure, organic)
1/2 cup honey (I used wildflower)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
6 eggs


Whisk the eggs thoroughly in a large mixing bowl, set aside. In a medium sauce pan, heat the coconut oil on low heat until melted. Take off the heat and allow to cool for a couple of minutes (not harden but cool off). In the egg bowl, add in the coconut flour, cocoa, honey and sugar. Once blended, add in the coconut oil and stir until well blended. 

In a 9x13" pan, bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick removed cleanly. 

You can also throw in some nuts, coconut flakes or chocolate chips (or whatever else your palate desires). YUM. 

Enjoy (for a snack or dessert... or maybe with your breakfast ;))
