Almond flour brownies

What you’ll need to make these gluten free, almond flour brownies:

-Coconut Oil

-Coconut Sugar

-Eggs

-Almond Flour

-Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

-Baking soda

-Salt

-Vanilla Extract

-Almond Milk

Let’s talk about almond flour! Almond flour has a reputation of being pretty dense, but in these brownies that’s exactly what we want. Almond flour is naturally gluten free, as it is made entirely from blanched almonds. ¼ cup of almond flour contains 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, a consequence of its nutty source.

How you’ll make these gluten free, almond flour brownies:

To begin, set a medium sized pot over a low fire. I advise adding 3.5 oz of dark chocolate (80%+ cacao) along with coconut oil. The type of chocolate I use is Trader Joe’s 85% dark chocolate, which comes in a pack of two bars that add up to 3.5 oz. Any sort of baking chocolate can be used here. Stir frequently, but gently, as the chocolate melts. Once all the chocolate is melted and there’s no longer any solid pieces, remove from the fire and allow it to cool as you prepare the next mixture.

In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and eggs. For one minute, whisk the two together until the mixture forms a thick, ribbony consistency. Once the pan of chocolate has cooled enough, add the egg mixture to the pot and combine.

In another small bowl, combine the almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the pot and combine, resulting in a thick brownie batter consistency.

At this point, add the vanilla extract and almond milk to the pot. Stir to combine, thinning the batter. Prepare an 8″ x 8″ pan with parchment paper, and pour the batter in, flattening it with a spatula. Top with dark chocolate chips. Bake the brownies at 350 F for 22 minutes. Once you remove the pan from the oven, use the edges of the parchment paper to lift the brownies out from the pan and place on to a flat surface.

When baked in an 8”x 8” pan, this recipe will make 16 brownies, or 9 if you like them big. I also recommend refrigerating these, as they’ll keep for about a week if refrigerated.

P.S. These brownies can be made fully sugar free by substituting the chocolate for a sugar free type and the coconut sugar for a sugar substitute.
