One thing lately that I have missed since I have been eating healthier… is BROWNIES! So… this weekend I set out to make some that hole together and taste delicious! Finally after 3 attempts, I figured it out! Aren’t you glad us food bloggers do all the testing for you! But eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! I know I say that a lot, but eating healthy is about balance and finding out what works for you and your body. For me… I know I can’t eat a ton of sugar and gluten, because I am bothered by both in large quantities. This is why for Easter, I really wanted to make something healthy that the whole family could enjoy for dessert! This led me to create these delicious brownies! I hope you get to enjoy them, too!

When you have a sweet tooth, the last thing you want is a recipe with a ton of ingredients or something that takes a lot of time. This recipe is minimal ingredients and fast to make! It is great if you need a last minute recipe for a holiday or family function! My favorite kind of recipe!
- Large Bowl
- 8×8 Inch Baking Dish
- Almond Flour
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Baking Powder
- Melted Butter or Coconut Oil (coconut oil for vegan option)
- Eggs or Flax Eggs (Flax Eggs for Vegan-See below)
- Monk Fruit Sugar or Regular Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
Step 1: Preheat & Grease
Preheat the oven to 350º. Grease a 8×8 inch pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
Step 2: Mix Altogether
In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, butter (or coconut oil), water, eggs (or flax eggs), monk fruit sugar (or regular sugar), and vanilla extract. Stir all of the ingredients together until all of the lumps are out of the mix. The mix will be really thick (this is normal). Fold in any extras you would like. Check out the extras list below.
Step 3: Cook & Cool
Pour the batter into your baking dish and cook in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting.
In order to make this recipe vegan you will need ground flaxseed or flax meal and water. In order to make the two “eggs” for this recipe, mix 2 tbsp of flax meal and 5 tbsp of water. This will replace the two eggs in the recipe.
If you want a little something extra in your brownies, here are a few delicious extras that you could add to your brownies:
- Chocolate Chips
- White Chocolate Chips
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Crushed Peppermint Candies
- M & M’s
