Almond Flour Brownies
These make a dense, moist, chewy, chocolaty brownie.
So here it is in all it's simple glory :)
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup cocoa (I used raw cacao)
1/4 tsp. baking soda (this can be omitted)
1/4 tsp. sea salt (omit if using salted butter)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix honey, butter, vanilla and eggs until smooth. (If omitting baking soda, beat eggs until foamy before adding in other wet ingredients.) Add almond flour, cocoa, baking soda and optional salt. Stir to blend. Pour into greased 8x8x2 inch pan. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, until center no longer jiggles and top feels cakey.
Cool on a wire rack at least until sides pull away from the edge of the pan before cutting.
