  • Preheat the oven to 355°F/180°C. Line a baking pan (6 x 9 inches | 15 x 23cm) with parchment paper.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil over a water bath or in the microwave. Stir in eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until just combined.
  • Fold in almond flour and nuts - don’t overmix. → Optional: I love to toast the nuts slightly in a skillet over medium heat, which gives them a more intense flavor!
  • Pour it into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes (depending on how fudgy you like your brownies). Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack, and let it cool completely in the baking dish.
  • Cut into 12 brownies! Feel free to drizzle with melted chocolate and coarse sea salt!


Make your own almond flour with this easy DIY Almond Flour Recipe!
Sugar: Those brownies are made with less sugar than regular brownies, thus they are less sweet. Feel free to use up to  ⅔ - 1 cup (105-140g) coconut sugar!
Coconut Sugar Substitution: Use ⅓ cup (65g) brown sugar and ⅓ cup (65g) white sugar for regular sweet brownies. → White and brown sugar doesn't count towards paleo!
Coconut Oil Substitution: Use ¼ cup regular or dairy-free butter. 
Prefer crinkle top brownies? Whip the eggs, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer until fluffy before folding in the melted chocolate and coconut oil.
Store leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
