Double Chocolate Paleo Brownies

Double chocolate brownies that are so thick and delicious you’d never guess they’re gluten free, dairy free, and paleo! Next, try my paleo chocolate chip cookies.

Today I had huge hopes to offer an entirely different recipe. I created it, filmed it, edited it, and ate the whole thing. It was ready for publication.

But then I discovered these paleo brownies. I couldn’t take it anymore. I just couldn’t. I was overjoyed to discover that I could make a rich, dense, chocolaty brownie that is also paleo-friendly.

There will be no butter, milk, granulated sugar, brown sugar, gluten, alien body parts, or other artificial substances.

Paleo desserts can be tough to make

I’ve been trying to figure out how to produce attractive and tasty paleo and keto desserts. Keto is considerably more challenging for me, so I’ve been focused on paleo. My friends, take it slowly. Little steps.

I don’t want to make everything out of almond flour, almond butter, and coconut oil, but it’s a start. They’re quite versatile substances!

And, as an added benefit, it is quite conceivable to create things that do not taste like any of those things.

Where can I find paleo chocolate chocolate chips?

Enjoy Life is my favorite brand, although I’m sure there are others.

But do these taste like real brownies?

They absolutely do. I can’t say enough about how delicious these brownies are, and not just because they’re paleo. To be honest, I need to pat myself on the back. It took a few attempts, but I finally got it.

Let us take a minute to just gaze and enjoy. As if they were an artwork in a beautiful museum:

Cakey brownies vs. fudgy brownies

I used small chocolate chips in my first attempt, but it was lackluster. And since I used too much almond flour and not enough egg, they turned up cakey.

To be sure, cakey isn’t always a negative thing if you’re looking for cakey. Yet, I was not. I was trying for a brownie-y flavor.

My criteria for a delicious paleo brownie

  • I didn’t need them to be incredibly fudgy since I already have a gluten-free go-to and a traditional recipe for that (though that doesn’t mean it won’t happen at some point), but I did want them to be the sort of brownie you can take a bite of and really dig your teeth into. Literally.
  • I wanted them to have melty chocolate chips in them so that I wouldn’t create a mess when I ate them right out of the oven (waiting is for chumps). Check.
  • I wanted almond butter swirls to make them seem more interesting, but not so many that they tasted like almond butter. Check again.

Finally, the flavor has to be black and deep.

I didn’t want to eat an overly sweet sugar bomb, but I also didn’t want it to be bitter.

Check, check, and check again.

You don’t have to be paleo to enjoy these

Hence, whether or not you need to follow a paleo diet, you must bake these brownies. Go to the shop, get the supplies, prepare them, and then do all you can not to eat one after another.

They may be paleo, but they are not celery with no calories or repercussions. I guarantee you won’t notice it’s missing all the exciting things.

Can I use brown sugar instead of sugar in brownies?

Sugar, brown:

What happens if you put less sugar in brownies?

2 cup instead of 4 cup or 1 sugar reduction

Brownies are light and soft because of the sugar in them. If all of it is removed, the brownies will be flat and leathery. To avoid this, take off between 25% and 50% of the sugar. For instance, if the recipe asks for one cup of sugar, use three.

The Finest Flour for Brownies

Cake flour has just 6-8% protein, which is insufficient to keep the mixture together and will result in a flaky mess. Bread flour, on the other hand, contains too much protein (12-15%), resulting in a thick, hard chocolate bar. Thus all-purpose flour comes out on top!
