Coconut flour brownies recipe #glutenfree #paleo #eggless

Coconut Flour Brownies

  • 1/2 c coconut flour - (minus) 1 tbsp
  • 1/2 c cacao
  • 1/2 c butter + 2 tbsp (or coconut oil + salt)*
  • 1/2 c honey + 2 tbsp
  • 3 eggs**
  • Vanilla
  • Pecans or walnuts 
*My friend uses a whole  whole cup of coconut oil 

**I can't have eggs so here are some popular egg-less /vegan substitutes:

  • Baking Soda and Vinegar
    • This is a decent egg substitute for fluffier baked goods.
    • How much to use: Use 1 teaspoon of baking soda mixed with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar for 1 egg.
  • Banana
    • This adds lots of moisture and some extra sweetness in muffins and cakes, so you need to adjust the sugar amount in your recipe. 
    • How much to use: Different sources recommend anywhere from 1/2 to 1 mashed banana as a replacement for 1 egg.
  • Flax Egg

Throw 'er in the oven at 300 degrees for 28 mins

Cacao is NOT cocoa
