Coconut Flour Brownies (Gluten & Dairy Free) 

These scrumptious gluten and dairy free brownies use coconut flour which is rich in dietary fibre and protein. It's a super absorbent flour which soaks up moisture like a sponge. Cook's tips for coconut flour - make sure you mix really well before baking to avoid clumps.

A great better-for-you alternative to the traditional brownie. Made with coconut flour, coconut oil and cocoa. Moist, chocolate-y and delicious! 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsps. organic coconut oil 
1/4 cup cocoa powder 
3 large eggs
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsps. agave nectar OR honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup minus 1 tbsp. (50 g) coconut flour 
1/2 tsp. salt 
1/3 cup chopped raw walnuts 
1/3 cup chocolate chips (use gluten free ones to keep recipe gluten free) 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees f. Line an 8"x 8" glass baking pan with parchment so two edges hang over the side of the pan (for easy removal and cutting). Spray lightly with cooking spray. 
In glass measuring cup, melt coconut oil in microwave. In a large bowl, combine the cocoa powder and the melted coconut oil, and eggs with an electric mixer until combined. Add in the agave (or honey) and vanilla extract. Mix again until combined. Add in the coconut flour and salt and mix again until the batter is thoroughly combined. 

Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips. Spread into prepared pan evenly. 

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool on wire rack and once cooled to room temperature, remove from pan and cut into 16 squares. You can either refrigerate the brownies or leave them at room temperature in an airtight container.

This brownie recipe is not meant to be low calorie, but it is full of better-for-you ingredients that combine to make a pretty tasty chocolate treat!
