It so hard to believe that 1 year ago today I published the first recipe here in my little corner of the world-wide web! I am so grateful for how far we’ve come and for all of you wonderful readers who take the time to make my recipes!

I started this blog at a time when I felt like I was spending my days only doing things I had to do, and nothing I loved doing. Except for spending time with my family, I had lost a lot of the joy in my life and desperately needed a little bit of sunshine. 😉 We all have these seasons in our lives {can I get an AMEN}?! My favorite bible verse when I am struggling is Hosea 6:1, ““Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.” Everything, even our struggles are part of His ultimate design for our lives…and to me, that is beautiful. 

Plus, out of this difficult season JoyFoodSunshine was born! This blog has become my creative outlet! Something I love doing and have so much fun with! I’ve always had a passion for healthy living and eating, as well as being a support to other women {especially moms}. Through JoyFoodSunshine I have been able to share these passions and it’s all thanks to YOU! So really, I can’t thank you enough for all of your love, support and encouragement…..and I can’t wait to see what the next year of delicious food and fun has in store!

Now, back to this single-serve Paleo Microwave Brownie recipe! If you look at the picture above, you will see that this little healthy treat is not the prettiest. Since it’s not a cake I had to sacrifice the perfect, puffy top in order to make it irresistibly fudgy and gooey {so worth it}.

So if when you give this recipe a whirl, it will not look pretty and that is ok. It will taste amazing….which is all that really matters right?! 😉

Notes on substitutions in this Single-Serve Paleo Microwave Brownie

As always I recommend that you make the recipe exactly as written. I went through so many trials and errors to get this chocolatey delight just right…that I know it’s best when the recipe is followed to a T. However, I know y’all will want to know what you can substitute, so here we go:

Almond butter: you can use any nut/seed butter. I have had the best results with almond butter and peanut butter {not paleo}.

Coconut oil: Grass-fed butter {dairy} or ghee can be substituted, although I have absolutely had the best results when I stick with coconut oil!

Almond Milk: Any non-dairy milk or non-dairy creamer will work as a substitution here. Just be cautious about sticking to your dietary needs!

Coconut sugar: Any other granulated sugar can be used without affecting the results. Honey or maple syrup are also a possible substitution, however I find that it makes this even more gooey and it tastes less like an actual brownie and more like brownie pudding if you use a liquid sweetener.

Almond flour: The only substitutions that could potentially work here are: another nut flour, a gluten-free flour blend, or oat flour {not paleo}. Please, I beg you, do NOT substitute coconut flour. It is absolutely not a 1:1 substitute for any other flour on the market.
