Brownies! Brownies! Brownies!

I’ve been making brownies a LOT lately.  I’m on a quest to find the BEST Paleo brownies…AND…to be perfectly honest it just makes me feel better knowing I’m eating a “healthy” brownie when I have a chocolate craving.  In my unbiased opinion, Ghirardelli brownies are THE BEST BROWNIES that come out of a box.  With all that oil, added chocolate syrup my family adds to them, God only knows what preservatives and other terrible things they put in that box of yummy goodness, they’re just not the best thing to eat if you’re watching your figure and trying to stay that perfect size.  If you’re like me, you can look at a brownie and gain 5 pounds.  I so wish I was one of those naturally skinny girls.  But I’m not.  SO… I’m super excited to say that I’ve found a recipe that reminds me so much of those box brownies!  Seriously, they’re delicious!  They’re so good, I’m going to have to run a couple extra miles today.  Because I might have eaten more than just one… Ahhhhh.

Go make the easiest, Paleo, box-like brownies ever!!!

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour in the dry ingredients and blend until smooth.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips and then pour the batter into the pan. I sprinkled more chocolate chips on top of the batter.  This is optional!

  7. Allow to cool before cutting.
  8. Store brownies in a container in the fridge.  These are delicious cold or hot!
