Paleo Brownies

I don’t follow a paleo diet (although I tried it a few years ago to see if cutting dairy out would affect my allergies – it didn’t). I just love my oatmeal, greek yogurt, and all things with gluten in them too much to give it all up.

I like to try paleo baked goods once in a while and have been browsing recipes for paleo brownies. Most of what I found had combinations of almond butter, coconut oil, grass fed butter, and fancy ingredients that I didn’t have on hand. Additionally, the recipes had lots of healthy fats but you definitely would want to limit yourself to one brownie. These are free of refined sugar and flour, are super fudgy, and aren’t 300 calories a piece.

  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup Pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup Applesauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and pour into an 8×8 greased pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Serves 9.
