Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies

Listen, there is NO WAY on earth I would EVER ask a person to give up chocolate. 

Chocolate is the bomb dot com. It makes the world go round. It saves lives... okay, I may be getting a bit dramatic, but still. 

Okay, switching to my healthy ways... Chocolate is a POWERFUL source of Antioxidants! It improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, raises HDL and protects LDL from oxidation, it reduces the risk of heart disease, improves brain function, and so much more. So of course I am going to say EAT THE CHOCOLATE.

The thing is, so many have chocolate ALL WRONG. You have to stay away from the storebought crap. It isn't good for you. It rarely has a lot of real chocolate in it. It is full of sugar and other chemicals. 

Get Cacao NOT Cocoa. When you know better, you do better. 
So grab a great non-gmo organic bag of CACAO and let's get started! 

Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies

2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan sea salt
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350º. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl add almond flour, cacao, baking powder, sea salt, and mix together.

In a small size mixing bowl, add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, almond milk and eggs. Mix

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add in chocolate chips to the brownie batter and stir to combine.

Pour the brownie batter into the baking pan, and spread in an even layer.

Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Use the parchment paper to lift the cooled brownies out of the pan, cut and serve.
