Double Chocolate Brownies (gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free)

With the warmer weather, we've been having more and more get-together's with family and friends lately. My parents were in town and instead of trying to come up with an entire dinner for my family, my parents, and my sister's family we decided to eat separately and join up after for dessert, a mean game of backyard badminton, and card games. Needless to say, my kids were so excited about dessert they didn't "feel very hungry for dinner". I needed to make something that was not only going to be gluten free, but wasn't going to give my kiddos a sugar rush and crash. Oh, one other requirement...it had to be chocolate (per the hubby's request). What does this look like a specialty bakery!? Well, chocolate does sound pretty good right now....so I gave in and made these yummy, refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free Double Chocolate Brownies!  

Double Chocolate Brownies


1 cup coconut flour

1 cup almond butter or peanut butter

1 cup honey or pure maple syrup (or a combination of the two)

4 tbsp.unsweetened coco powder

4 eggs, beaten

3 tbsp organic butter, softened or coconut oil + pinch of sea salt

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup milk - almond, coconut, or organic dairy milk will all work

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 


Preheat the oven to 350. With a mixer, cream together everything except chocolate chips. Use peanut butter for a Reece's peanut butter cup taste. I used Wild Harvest organic salted butter in mine. Animals and humans alike store chemicals and toxins in fats. If you use butter be sure to find one that is from grass-fed cows that are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Same goes if you like your cow's milk. (I use almond milk). 
Stir in the dark chocolate chips and pour into a greased (with coconut oil) 11 x 7 x 2 pan or I used a 10 x 9 pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Eat em' warm or cover and save for later.
