I have experimented with several Paleo brownie recipes, but this one tops the list by far. They come out of the oven very moist and chewy. That means that if you are one of those people who likes the outside edge of brownies, you might want to bake them for a few extra minutes.
I mean, there are even specially designed pans dedicated to making edge-only brownies, so I know you are out there. Also, my boyfriend is one of those people. One way I knew that we were a good match was that he liked to eat the outer edge from the brownie pan and I preferred the fudgy center. Perfect.
These paleo brownies are better than any mix from a box, and they avoid a large heaping of sugar and flour. There actually isn’t any flour in the recipe at all, even gluten-free flour. I don’t know if I would be able to tell the difference between this brownie recipe and its non-Paleo counterpart. They’re THAT good.
Healthy Substitutes for Common Paleo Brownie Ingredients
Can’t eat eggs?
Replace the eggs with flax seed! Just take 2.5 teaspoons ground flax for each egg you’ll be replacing and whisk the ground flax seed in a little bit of water until it becomes gelatenous.
Recommended Brand: Spectrum Essentials Organic Ground Flaxseed (also available at many organic-friendly grocery stores and co-ops)
Allergic to almonds?
Replace the almond flour and almond butter in your brownie recipes with an equal amount of coconut flour or sunflower seed butter. Both are just as healthy and are equally delicious!
