Brownies (grain free)

Brownie 2014-01-17 031 Sometimes you just need a little “yum” in your life.   Well, here it is!   Sure, you could take these to a Superbowl party this Sunday but you could also make them just for you and your family.  Whatever works.

It is serving as a nice treat as I spend the week working on my final presentation for chef school.
If you are a fudgy brownie person, only add 2 eggs.  If you like a more cake-like brownie, add 3 eggs.

Who doesn’t like a bowl of melted butter and chocolate?  For real….its sinful. Lick the spoon, but pour the rest into the mix.

Brownie 2014-01-17 019If you are still looking for a recipe to bring to the Superbowl party, here are some ideas...this crowd pleasing mint  beet dip,  roasted rosemary cashews, and these delicious Parmesan quinoa cakes.  You can’t go wrong with any of those…but if you are going for sweet, these brownies won’t disappoint.

Almond flour can be pricey but I buy it in bulk from here and leave it in the freezer.   Coconut flour adds some fiber and protein, and is relatively inexpensive for the amount you use in each recipe.
