These super fudgy Flourless Paleo Brownies taste better than their

Hi, My name is Laura, and I am a brownie addict.

{Hi Laura}

But for real, I have said it before and I’ll say it again, brownies are my absolute favorite dessert! These Flourless Paleo Brownies are THE winners if you’re looking for a healthier brownie that doesn’t taste healthy at all {like not in the slightest}. It’s true, I already have a super healthy paleo & vegan brownie recipe that is knock your socks off good, but it doesn’t taste like “normal” brownies {in my husband’s words lol}! This one does.

Since Valentine’s Day is not too far away, I figured we all need some chocolate to share with the people we love {or to eat the entire pan ourselves}. These Flourless Paleo Brownies are super easy to make…I mean they are ready in 30 minutes! They contain ingredients that you probably already have on hand, and taste 100% like the real thing. Plus, they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free & refined sugar free!

I have literally lost count of the number of times I have made these since I first started testing them, and I anticipate many {many} variations will be coming to this blog in the future! The only negative thing about these Flourless Paleo Brownies is that my husband loves them, so that means less for me. Whomp whomp.

By now you all know my qualifications for a brownie…insanely fudgy and irresistibly chocolatey {cakey brownies need not apply}. These brownies are all that and more. Plus they have a beautifully crunchy crinkly top that is to die for.

Flourless Paleo Brownies: Method

Mixing by hand vs using a mixer. The recipe calls for mixing everything in a standing mixer. However, you can also simply mix everything by hand! You will need to be more intentional about ensuring there are no lumps, but I usually opt for the by-hand method for the sake of dishes and time.

If you want to mix by hand, simply melt the chocolate chips/butter (or coconut oil) together. Then add the other wet ingredients and stir until combined. Then add dry ingredients and stir! So easy!

Flourless Paleo Brownies: Possible Substitutions

Coconut oil/butter: I have used both with great success! My husband prefers butter {surprise surprise}, but we all love them either way!

Chocolate chips: I recommend using Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips because they are dairy and soy free. If you’re concerned about your chocolate being paleo friendly, simply substitute the chips for unsweetened, chopped chocolate…however you may need to taste the batter and increase the sugar if you like your brownies super sweet!

Coconut sugar: You can substitute any granulated sugar of your choice, just make sure it complies with your dietary needs. I have used raw, organic granulated sugar {not paleo} with great results!

Tapioca/arrowroot starch: Cornstarch is an acceptable substitute but it is not paleo.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line an 8x8” square pan with parchment paper and grease. Set aside.

  11. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To return the fresh-from-the-oven taste simply reheat in the microwave for 10 seconds!

Recipe Notes

*Use paleo-friendly chocolate like enjoy life. Or you can use unsweetened baking chocolate but you may need to increase the amount of sugar. **You can use any granulated sugar. They do come out sweet so if you like your brownies darker I'd recommend using 1/2 cup! ***Sifting your cocoa powder insures there will not be any lumps which is super important!

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? I usually make a heart shaped pizza and cut the pepperoni into hearts too….because my babies LOVE that. We’ve been learning L is for Love this week in homeschool, and have talked about God’s love for us and how we can show love to others. I had the kids make my hubby adorable little cards, and I’m definitely going to whip up either these brownies or this vegan chocolate fondue for dessert.

Ritch and I usually go on a date sometime after Valentine’s day, because we’d much rather enjoy an evening in than be out with the crows on the holiday! The only cliche thing I really do love is when he brings me fresh flowers! I just love the way flowers brighten up the house, especially in the winter!

Question: How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? What will you be having for dessert?
