Before these, the only brownies I ever made came from a box. I really thought that brownies would be too difficult and that only grandmas baked "real" brownies. Well, they are super easy and SO GOOD!!! Here are the ingredients that I use:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the coconut oil on low heat. Mix together the maple syrup, cocoa powder and vanilla, then add them to the melted coconut oil. I didn't have enough maple syrup this time, so I made up for it with honey...it came out pretty much the same. Add the coconut flour and baking soda. Lastly, add the bittersweet chocolate chunks. I used a semi-sweet chocolate bar (from Bolivia) and grated it. You can also cut it so that you can control the "chunk" size.
Mix it all together and pour it into a greased dish. Bake it for 25-30 minutes.
You can top it with chocolate moose or strawberries or anything!
