The paleo diet is heavy on proteins and low in carbs, but you can have some fun too. I don’t think that cavemen ate brownies, but you can try these delicious paleo brownies that have no flour or milk. They’re moist and chocolaty and will satisfy your sweet-tooth.
Paleo Brownies Ingredients
½ C Whole Pitted Dates, soaked in hot water 15 minutes if hard (I used 7 pitted medjool dates)
¼ Tsp. Sea Salt
½ Tsp. Baking Soda
1 C Blanched Almond Flour or Almond Meal
¼ C Cocoa Powder
2 Large Eggs
½ C Smooth Almond Butter
3 Tbsp Natural Honey
2 Tsp. Pure Vanilla
