You know what we love more than brownies? Guilt-free brownies. See, since we can’t actually ever fully give up chocolate (or the taste of it), what we do instead is trick ourselves into thinking that we’re eating chocolate, when in all actuality we’re popping these naturally sweetened brownies into our mouths instead. We have model Penny Lane to thank for this recipe—yup, the same one who gave us last week’s breakfast recipe and vacation workout (by now can you tell that she’s onto something?). We’ve tried this brownies firsthand, and let’s just say that they’ve officially become our go-to 3 pm snack.
(Will make 12 mini brownie cupcakes)
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup Lakanto sweetener
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon smooth, unsalted almond butter (or ghee)
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
