Yes, I know baking ain't paleo, but anyway... What's your favourite paleo brownie recipe that gives you moist, fudgy, dense, chocolatey brownies? I just tried one on health-bent, but wasn't wowed by the results...

I haven't tried these, but I have made her banana bread french toast and nearly fainted from the intense deliciousness, so I bet it's worth a try:
We make a very simple lava cake that could be cooked a little longer to make brownies.
Melt together: 100g dark chocolate 1/4 cup butter Add: 1/4 cup almond meal 2 eggs 2 tbsp sugar or other sweetener, if desired.
Elana's pantry has an espresso brownie recipe that is really good. I left out the espresso because I don't drink coffee and they were still delicious.
More of a fudge texture than a brownie or cake, but, freaking awesome...and so easy.
Here are two that I have tried and like.
I think the biggest thing is playing around with the honey ratio. If you don't do a lot of sweets it's fine as stated but if you're looking for something a little more sweet or preparing for a non paleo crowd it might need a touch more.
- 1 cup organic cacao powder
- 1 cup coconut butter (I use Artisana or Tropical Traditions)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 4 eggs
- 1/4-1/2 tsp stevia extract
Beat all ingredients together until smooth. Place in a parchment-lined 8x8" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
I am gaga over this recipe
we've made it 3 times now and each time its a bit better and only last a day
kudos to the creator!
I actually used eggs, cocoa powder, and mashed yam. It worked out surprisingly well, and tasted like those Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies!
I realize this question is over 7 months old, so it's had a lot of time to make the rounds, but I have to say...
It's interesting that this brownie thread has 11,000 views, and other questions (about what I might consider more salient topics) sometimes barely break into the 100s. Hehheh.
These are absolute crack to the Paleo among us. Every potluck loves them. HOWEVER, non-Paleo folks have told me they're too "Dark chocolaty". I used regular butter until I got coconut butter.
Triple Fudge Bacon Brownies
1 c Coconut Butter
1/2 c Full Fat Canned Coconut Milk (the light stuff will not work)
2 Eggs, beaten
1 T Vanilla
4 oz Baking Chocolate, melted in 1 T Coconut Oil
1/3 c Raw Honey
1/4 c Cocoa Powder
1/2 t Salt
1 T Arrowroot Powder
2 c Chocolate Chips (yes, I said TWO cups)
3 Thick Slices Bacon
Fry bacon until very crisp (but not burned) and let cool and drain on paper towels. Chop into very small bits and set aside.
Beat the coconut butter, eggs, coconut milk, vanilla, melted chocolate, honey, cocoa, salt, and arrowroot powder with an electric mixer.
Stir in the bacon bits and chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remember, they will still be gooey after baking thanks to the massive amount of melted chocolate in them. Cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
- 500g dates
- 100g nuts of your choice (I like hazelnuts, almonds or cashews)
- 1-2 tbsp cacao powder
- 200g almond butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Blend in a processor, smush into brownie-shapes, refrigerate for about an hour and enjoy.
I would like to recommend my Paleo Brownie Recipe, which received tons of good reviews. It is dense, thick and chewy, but not drying out for the next day, nor very wet. Here: http://paleoliscious.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/magical-paleo-brownies-my-way-chewy.html
0.5 cup cocoa
0.75 cup sugar
If you're into instantaneous gratification, here is a no bake "brownie" that takes under 3 minutes to make-- it's totally addictive and my kids beg for them: www.livefabuLESS.com/brownie-bites (you can sub coconut oil for the walnut butter, if you prefer)
