Coconut Flour Brownies

Coconut Flour Brownies
Today I really craved something chocolatey, but didn't have time to pull out all my cookbooks and decide what to make.  

So, I tried a recipe on the back of my coconut flour bag that I have been eying for some time.  (I did replace the sugar with a combination of xylitol and stevia.) Grain free and sugar free and... even guilt free!! 

(Despite the picture, they were not crumbly at all-I just used a butter knife and should have cut them neater :/ )

Allison's Wheat Free Brownie Recipe
The recipe calls for:
-1/3 cup butter
-1/2 cup cocoa powder
-6 eggs or egg substitute
-1cup sugar
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1/2 cup coconut flour
-1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small saucepan over low heat, blend butter and cocoa powder.  Remove from heat and cool. 

Let's Do Organic Coconut Flour
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla.  Then add the chocolate mixture and 
blend in the coconut flour.  (I used a hand beater for this and it worked great.)  Smooth into a greased 8x8 baking pan for 30-35 minutes.

I substituted the cup of sugar with a heaping 1/4 cup of xylitol and a few squirts of stevia glycerite...(about 4.)  

Baked for 30 minutes, did not add chocolate chips and greased my glass dish with coconut oil spray.  They taste a lot like chocolate cake

I was pleased with how easy this recipe was and how they totally satisfied my need for a dessert today.  I would definitely make them again, just too easy not to!  :)
