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.

This paleo brownie recipe is made with a little extra power boost! ready for the secret ingredient that makes these brownies practically dinner? I used collagen fuel from Primal Kitchen!

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!

    I’m new to Paleo and I don’t mean to sound rude. But how can these be “healthy” with 440 calories and all those carbs for just one? It looks amazing and I’d like a dozen, but it seems to defeat the intent of the Paleo diet even if it adheres to the rules as far as ingredients listed individually. Am I being too stringent?

      Hi Sue, Paleo isn’t about counting calories- it’s about fueling your body with healthy whole foods and healthy fats to nourish your brain! The calories in this recipe are from coconut products and are burned as fat, fuel for your brain! Don’t count calories, count nutrition! 🙂 Hope that helps.

      Coconut flour is much more “healthy” than a white, refined flour as well as coconut oil is much better than butter. I would eat this any day compared to a traditional brownie recipe.

    Oh my goodness! This is like the best paleo cake I’ve ever had! I made the frosting with half almond butter and half sunbutter. So good! Thanks for such a great recipe. Will make this for our next family gathering; guaranteed no one will even know it’s paleo!

    Will this keep for traveling or does this need to be refrigerated? We are planning a camping trip and I always make fresh brownies for out camping trips and haven’t quite found one that doesn’t dry and fall apart. Thank you.

    What would be a good substitute for palm oil shortening? Using palm oil products contributes to deforestation! These brownies sound yummy! Have a blessed day.
