These Gooey Fudgy Paleo Brownies are hands down the best batch of healthy brownies I have made. They’ve got that rich intense dark chocolate flavor and luscious moist texture. Even better? These brownies are gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly.
I am a chocolate addict.
But who can blame me? Cacao is proven to improve mood and cognitive function.
That’s what I tell myself.
Especially when I have these gooey fudgy paleo brownies in hand.
Why do I love these Paleo Brownies
The most Fudgy Brownies
Firstly of all, texture of these brownies are so gooey, fudgy and moist.
Each bite is like an explosion of rich intense chocolate.
Healthy Guilt Free Paleo Brownies
Although these healthy brownies taste like a chocolate volcano explosion, they are made with healthy ingredients. You won’t believe it.
They are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Paleo Friendly.
Instead of butter in traditional brownie recipe, I used ghee which is lactose free. You could also sub for coconut oil.
Additionally, I replaced regular flour with almond flour, which is paleo, gluten free and keto friendly.
Last but not least, I used paleo friendly maple syrup and coconut sugar rather than regular white sugar. To be honest, I personally love the taste of maple and that caramel-y flavor from coconut sugar. So it’s a win win situation.
SO Easy to Make
This Gooey and Fudgy Brownie recipe is so easy make.
Don’t get intimated by the chocolate melting part. Trust me, I used to think it was the most fancy process ever. But melting chocolate in double pots is actually super fun. Especially when you get to scrape (read – lick) the leftover melty chocolate.
How to Make the most Fudgy Paleo Brownies
First, you will a few accessible ingredients:
- Lots of chocolate ( I like this 100% dark chocolate or this paleo chocolate sweetened by coconut sugar)
- Almond flour
- Cacao powder
- Maple syrup
- Ghee or coconut oil
- Coconut Sugar
Second, melt 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar in a pot.
I used double pot method here. So you will need two pots here.
In a small pot, place the chocolate in it. Then fill the second pot (bigger) with water, half full.
Then, place the small pot in the big pot. Bring water to boil then turn the heat to simmer. Stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.
Phew, it sounds fancy. But it is really so easy.
Even better? You get to lick the leftover chocolate. I mean “Clean”. Did I typed what I was thinking out loud?
Third, mix the rest of the ingredient in one bowl, and slowly pour the chocolate in the bowl.
Last but not least, sprinkle some extra chocolate chip and sea salt on top.
Bake and Enjoy!
Don’t like your Brownies Gooey?
Now, personally, I love a rich, dense and fudgy brownie. To be honest, I also like my banana bread moist and gooey.
But these healthy brownies’ texture can vary depending on how long you bake them and how much baking soda you put in the batter.
In order to make cake-like brownies, add ½ teaspoon baking soda and bake for the brownie for just a couple extra minutes.
