Delicious fudge grain free brownies

April 28, 2014

This recipe is for my delicious fudge grain free brownies that I shared via Instagram and Facebook a few weeks back. I have been asked to post it up on my blog for easier access to the recipe, which is totally fine with me! The more people that can view this recipe and make it, the better!

What makes these grain free brownies oh so fudgey is letting them sit in the fridge for 2 hours after you bake them. They still taste good warm but they do not take on the rich and fudgey taste and texture unless you leave them to do their stuff in the fridge. So even though it is tempting, try not to eat them all after they come out of the oven!!!

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
  2. Get your food processor out and first add in the almond flour and the dark chocolate and blend together (make sure you break up the dark chocolate into smaller squares). Blend until you get a sandy type of texture
  3. Next add the coconut oil and the medjool dates and blend some more.
  4. Once you are happy with the texture, add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until you get a thick and fudgey texture.

These fudge grain free brownies are one of my favorite healthy desserts now. The almond flour and eggs pack them full of protein, and the coconut oil adds a touch of healthy fats. I find that these brownies are next to impossible to binge on because a) there are no ‘addicting’ ingredients that will trick your body into wanting more and b) because this recipe contains quite a lot of protein and fiber, a smaller amount leaves you feeling full quite quickly and for a long time too.

I hope this recipe becomes one of your favorites soon too! I know some of the ingredients seem a little rare and unique, but if you live near a Whole Foods you can get most of these ingredients from the bulk bin section and then literally just get the amount you need as opposed to buying a huge bag of almond flour and then not using the rest.

    Just wondering what size pan to use for the brownies? Also, is that 1/2 cup coconut oil, and what type of coconut oil should be used for this?

      Hi Elspeth!

      Thanks so much for stopping by Honestly Fitness πŸ™‚ I used an 8inch x 8inch pan with a depth of 2 inches because that was the only pan I had … preferably you should use one half that size.

      And coconut oil is oil made from coconut. It is a replacement for butter or olive oil. Here is a link to the kind I use:

      Have fun making this delicious treat, and please share photo’s and your thoughts when you do <3

    Hi Alice,

    Does “1/2 coconut oil” mean 1/2 cup?

      Hi Elspeth,

      Yes, it means 1/2 cup. Sorry for the typo and thanks for asking!
