Paleo Coconut Flour Brownies

By ryanmmurano

Dense and fudgy, these coconut flour brownies are rich. If you prefer a more bittersweet chocolate flavor, use only 1/2 cup honey/maple syrup. If you prefer a sweeter brownie, use 3/4 cup of honey/maple syrup.

There's nothing Paleo about this recipe. Butter, cocoa powder, coconut flour and Splenda were never just happened upon by hunter-gatherer people as they wandered around the world gathering their food here and there. These are all manufactured agricultural products made possible by the Agricultural revolution as people hunkered down and started farming. Paleo doesn't mean less processed at all. It means NOT processed at all.

Just to clarify - This is not a low-carb recipe unless you are using the Splenda. If you are using honey or maple syrup, the Calories are 140, Carbohydrates are 15 g for 1/16th of the recipe.
