Fudgy Paleo Brownies with almond butter

My husband said these taste like real fudge brownies with the “sugar sucked out.” “Like Magic?” I asked him. “Yes.” So now my cooking is magical!

Personally, there is plenty of sweetness in these little morsels- especially with the added richness of almond butter on top (if you choose to top them! They are also fine without) Matt just has an intense sweet tooth!

I really like cooking desserts in small batches because then I don’t over-indulge or get sick of the same thing. We had a tiny batch of these at home since we are working on fitness this month- I took the rest to my Staff at Cape Fear Academy and they LOVED them! I hope you do too!

 {small batch} Fudgy Paleo Brownies with almond butter

To make these, you will need 45 minutes and….

  • 1/2 cup 100% cacao
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of carob chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, butter or ghee {clarified butter with no milk solids}
  • 1/2 cup of no sugar added, pure almond butter
  1. Preheat Oven to 300 degrees
  2. Cover a small loaf pan or 8×8 baking dish (I like glass) with sheet of parchment paper
  3. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT FOR AlMOND BUTTER, adding in the carob chips LAST
  4. Pour brownie batter into baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes
  5. Brownies will not look set immediately! They need to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Spread brownies with a thin layer of almond butter, cut into small chunks and enjoy!
