The best healthy paleo coconut flour brownies topped with a smooth and creamy peanut butter frosting (almond butter for paleoers). An easy recipe that will kill the dessert round! Gluten free, paleo friendly, and ready to bake in 8 minutes!
I know, I just made a batch of fudgey paleo applesauce brownies. But what’s a girl supposed to do? When in the mood for some chocolatey baking, nothing stands in my way.
That smooth peanut butter frosting was my big motivation for making these brownies… I’m sure you can see why. 🙂 Also, to make these brownies 100% paleo, just switch the peanut butter out for almond butter!
It seems that the last chocolately treat was eaten from the freezer today, so it’s time to restock! My family loves to dig into the freezer after lunch and pull out a treat; brownies and paleo chocolate muffins are always hot commodities.
With that being said, you can easily freeze these babies and pull them out in your time of need. Nobody ever said no to brownies covered in peanut butter frosting.
It’s loaded with 20g protein for just two scoops and is a paleo friendly protein powder. We use this collagen fuel in our house daily for smoothies and baked goods! It’s soooo good!
Since I’m a sucker for easy recipes, I whipped this one up in my food processor and had it ready in minutes (I’m sure you won’t disapprove of that). The only thing that requires a little extra care is melting the coconut oil before combining everything!
You can also mix everything by hand, but I just like to use my second set of hands (food processor). If you do make it by hand make sure you whip it really good, so there aren’t any coconut flour clumps.
no craziness. Just coconut flour… and…
When I served these up to my taste testers for the day; including a handful of friends and family, my brother reached for one, then hesitated and asked me if there was any “weird stuff’ in them… no avocado, sweet potato, zucchini, or black beans???
You better believe he covered all his bases! Hahaha, guess I have a reputation. But I promise these don’t taste like veggies (mostly because they don’t have any!). Also, they don’t taste like beef. The collagen fuel is chocolate or vanilla flavored. I used chocolate flavored collagen fuel since; well, brownies. But vanilla will work too!
So if you’re lookin for an afternoon pick-me-up, late night snack attack, or after dinner dessert, I got ya covered! These brownies are moist, cakey, and topped with smooth and creamy peanut butter goodness, also… they are technically healthy!
These brownies were served up on a beautiful handmade wooden cake stand by the lovely folks at Wood Expressions.
Reginald and Sheila have a lovely Etsy shop that is chocked full of beautiful artistry, handmade goods made from a variety of woods, and most importantly, beautiful cake stands that woo my heart! I have a few from their collection and I’m in love with them!
