Real Food Recipes:: Flourless Chocolate Brownies

Flourless Chocolate Brownies

Can you imagine anything better than rich, fudgey, chocolatey brownies hot from the oven with some fresh cream or homemade ice cream?   I know for me, when I am craving chocolate, a mere square doesn’t do me when I could have something gooey.

These brownies are chock-a-block with nourishing ingredients such as healthy saturated fat (READ:: BUTTER), pastured eggs, cocoa, pro-thyroid cane sugar (yes, SUGAR) and adrenal lowering sea salt.  That’s it!  No wheat, no gluten, no fiber.  Just metabolism loving goodness.

For those looking for information on why I am not using raw chocolate see Nutrition Myths Debunked:: Raw Cacao.

Some of you might be having a fit thinking of having to use sugar in these.  I urge you to read Sugar and The Diva’s Guide to Natural Sugars.


2 pastured free-range eggs
3/4 cup cane sugar  (I use Raspadura)
1/2 cup high quality cocoa (I use Valrhona)
3 tbsp. melted butter
1/4 tsp. celtic sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract


1.  Preheat oven to 350° F. (180ºC)
2.  Line a baking tray with parchment paper and butter paper.
3.  Cream butter, salt, and sugar together.  Add in eggs and beat for about a minute until combined.
4. Add in cocoa and mix well.
5. Pour mixture into baking tray. Bake for about 15 minutes until edges and center are firm (Center will be gooier than edges).
6. Remove and let cool slightly.
7. Sprinkle with cocoa if desired.
8. Serve warm with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.

Bon Appétit!

      I think her recipes are more Paleo and she uses way too much almond flour (which are high in PUFAs) but I have, myself, subbed macadamia flour with good luck in a few of her recipes. She uses honey in her marshmallow recipes and I don’t prefer cooking honey, and she has recipes using Chia seeds and I don’t recommend them. Otherwise, she’s fine if you follow a Paleo lifestyle. Her DIY recipes are amazing though. As far as miscarriages, the answer is none of the above unless you are referring to having an abortion/miscarriage that wasn’t complete. I am not an MD so I cannot really comment on whether you should have an injection or surgery to complete it.
