It’s International Women’s Day! Let’s celebrate with a toast to all the fabulous women in our lives and all the people who support them. The perfect way? Why not with a yummy, delicious treat? May I suggest some delicious (and somewhat nutritious), homemade paleo-fudge brownies? I know, I know… this coming on the heels of my previous post on healthy bland food options for longevity and good health! But I think most women in your lives would approve whole heartedly. Mmmm….
Enjoy! And have a beautiful day.
Paleo Fudgie Brownies
[…]Besides the fact that these are completely gluten free; you could leave out the sugar in the brownies and be almost 100% Paleo. Try and find chocolate chips with the highest percentage of cocoa. The higher the percentage the less sugar in the chocolate. If you can’t find a good quality chocolate chip, you could always chop up a chocolate bar instead.
- 1 c almond butter
- 1/2 c canned coconut milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 t vanilla extract
- 1/4 t salt
- 1/3 c cocoa powder
- 1/4 c sugar (optional or sweetener of choice)
- 1/3 c chocolate chips (use the highest % cocoa you can find, around 70% is good)
- 1/3 c chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.
In a bowl whisk together the almond butter, coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract and salt. Then add the cocoa powder, sugar, and chocolate chips.
Pour into the prepared baking dish and top with chopped nuts.
Bake for approx. 18 minutes.
Note: Consider substituting regular sugar for organic cane sugar or agave syrup, omit nuts if there are any nut allergies. -Fay Meling
