Fudgy Brownies

I don’t condone eating paleo baked goods all day, nor 1/2 a pumpkin pie all in one day, either.  But, sometimes we’re asked to share a dessert with friends at work or at family gatherings. I haven’t tried these fudgy brownies, but the picture allows me to taste it with my eyes!

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

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.
