Holiday baking is in full swing. Today I made three pumpkin pies and a batch of these brownies which are so delicious. This Thanksgiving I am making a lot of grain-free dishes which are coming out very well. A lot of the recipes I like are based in Almond flour. Using almond flour instead of grain flour really increases the protein in baked goods which makes it much healthier. These brownies are very easy to make and you barely even notice there is no real flour in them. Here is the recipe:
Almond Flour Brownies
- 2 1/2 cups Organic Almond Flour (My favorite is Benefit Your Life)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup organic cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, butter, or ghee
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Organic Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8×8 square baking pan. In a large bowl combine almond flour, slat, baking soda and cocoa powder and mix together. In a separate bowl mix together oil, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir. Bake for 30 minutes.
