These brownies. Fudgetastic.

Fudgetastic. Is that a word? Not according to the English language. But that’s okay. Cause we’re talking food and brownies right now. And brownies this good deserve cutesy made-up words to describe them.

In my quest to reduce sugar consumption, or simply put – cookie eating, I went on a mission to find a good cake or brownie recipe that was free of flour and granulated sugars. I went with brownies because well, simply put,  I am quite fond of them, more-so than cake. In fact, brownies and cookies are in a fierce competition to win my heart over with both equally coming out on top.

I settled on this Easy Paleo Brownie Recipe that I found on Cook Eat Paleo. I basically followed the recipe exactly as notated but I subbed out a couple of ingredients. Since I wanted to go dairy free, I replaced the ghee with coconut oil. Since I wanted live on the edge and try Agave nectar, I subbed the honey with agave nectar. You could also sub the honey with maple syrup. Or just use the honey. The choice is yours.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 325.
  2. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.

  4. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish and smooth out with rubber spatula.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the center is set. A toothpick should come out clean.

I think I am going to make these flourless fudgy brownies again, subbing the almond butter with peanut butter. I puffy heart peanut butter so I know these brownies will be da bomb when made with peanut butter. Not that they weren’t da bomb when made with almond butter. But you’re talking to the gal who stashes a jar of peanut butter in her desk at work so she has it on hand for those must have peanut butter moments.

      Yeah! You should, Nancy! I’m thinking about making a different variation of these today. Something with peanut butter and chocolate chunks. YUM!

      Hope you are having a good weekend. :)

    These look yummy! I like the combination of the almond butter and coconut oil, along with the nectar. I have to watch the sugar.
    Thanks Julie!

    Your were on a noble mission—-reduction of cookie eating aka less granulated sugar.
    I think you succeeded. This do look sufficiently delicious and fudgy to divert you from cookies—–well at least temporarily. Laughing——

    I am always on the look out for fudgy healthy brownies and I think I’ve found the perfect one! These look incredible – I love the almond butter and coconut oil in here and the fact that they’re flourless – seriously can’t wait to try these. Pinned.

      Thanks, Krista! I think you will enjoy them. I’m gonna try them again with peanut butter. Of course, they will be less paleo/low carb that way but you know how much I love peanut butter. ;)
