Paleo Brownie Bites - Nut & Egg Free-7422Here is a cookie I experimented with to get it just how I wanted.  I have never tried avocado as a fat replacement before…and chocolate and avocado are always amazing together!

These are little morsels of dense chocolate heaven..in a convenient and packable form.  A brownie in a cookie’s body.

I wanted to make them grain free, but nut and egg free so my little guy could enjoy them too.  Everyone so far agrees, and I think you will too….these are yummy!

You will notice there is no leavening in these…that keeps them nice and dense and fudge-like.  You could experiment with a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon baking soda and see what that does for you.

Paleo Fudgey Brownie Bites - Nut Free, Egg Free
Author: 
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 36
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (or unsweetened is fine too)
  • ½ cup preferred milk, I used coconut
  • 4 oz avocado, apx (1 medium Haas avocado)
  • ½-1cup granulated sugar, I used ½ cup palm sugar and stevia to taste)
  • ¼ cup coconut butter, softened (or any nut/seed butter)
  • 4 teaspoons gelatin
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup tapioca or arrowroot starch
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a sauce pan over medium low heat, gently heat and soften the chocolate and milk.
  3. Pour chocolate mixture in the bowl of a food processor and add the avocado flesh, sugar, and coconut butter. Puree.
  4. With the motor still turned on, sprinkle in the gelatin, vanilla, and sea salt.
  5. Continue with the remaining ingredients.
  6. Now taste and be sure the sweetness is too your liking.
  7. Using a cookie scoop for pretty balls...or if you don't care, just a tablespoon will do, drop the sticky batter onto a greased cookie sheet. These will not move, so placing them closer together is ok. You can smooth the tops with the back of a wet spoon if you like, or gently push down with your fingers.
  8. Place in a preheated oven and bake for about 8 minutes...DO NOT OVERBAKE!
  9. Remove, and cool. The cookies firm up a lot upon cooling.

These products are of amazing quality.  I have sampled over 10 products…..from body wash, to body lotion to lip balm to deodorant.  Every single one has totally impressed me.  I LOVE the way my skin feels and smells after using the Orange Nutmeg Lotion.  My face literally glows after applying the Amend Facial Potion!  The Mint Body Butter feels luxurious and decadent and goes on SO smooth!

I am anxious to try the Shave Bar and Eczema Relief.  The dry shampoos look super interesting, and I also want to try the mud masks!

I think the cherry on top is that the products are affordable!  Comparable products sell for double and more!  And shipping is reasonable too.

Gluten Free Chocolate Meringue Pie @ Recipes to Nourish – I can only imagine how wonderful a homemade version of this pie will taste….I would make some dairy free substitutions with full fat coconut milk and would use palm shortening and ghee for the fats!  I am thinking the filling by itself with be a rocking pudding!

Fudgey Cocoa Brownies – Gluten Free, Paleo & Egg Free Options

Best-Cocoa-Powder-Brownies-Gluten-Free-Egg-Free-Dairy-Free-7258

I had a lot of fun playing with this decadent recipe.  Deep, rich, and udderly satisfying to the most fiendish chocoholics.

This recipe is also very easy to play with and make it work for almost any special diet or restriction.

  • With so little flour…almost any flour will do!!  Each one will change the end product, but every version I tried was delicious.
  • The fat options are up to personal tastes and preference as well.  I tested them with coconut oil, ghee (butter w/ no casein), and palm shortening.  Earth Balance would work too….pick your poison!
  • You could use all organic cane sugar, all palm sugar, a mixture of the two, or cut it down a bit and use some stevia.  I use one cup, which is plenty sweet for me and all my testers…but YOU taste it and add a bit more if you like.
  • The eggs can be replaced in this too….albeit it yields a different end result completely addicting and fudgelicious….ok, so that is not a word…but the egg free version is literally like a decadent piece of real fudge.  Half my taste testers preferred the egg free version in fact, half the one with the eggs.  But all agreed…both were delicious!

Please join me over at The Happy Housewife where I shared this recipe today!

Paleo_Fish_Tacos

Fish tacos have always been one of my favorite meals…even though I am not a fish lover!

With a bit of creativity, it is easy to to turn this beloved favorite into something super tasty and free of grains!

These crispy pan-fried fish pieces are delicious in their own right, but placing them atop a spicy slaw with various Mexican accouterments will have you hooked!

I often use coconut flour, but to hide the coconutty flavor, I use strong spices, and you can too!  Add more or less to your preference, but you can also use almond flour too…just not quite as crunchy.

INGREDIENT NOTE:  I use my own homemade Paleo mayonnaise in this recipe.  With all the fillers, preservatives, and nasty oils used in almost all commercial mayonnaise, you are better off making your own too!  It is super simple and infinitely more delicious than anything you buy in a jar!

TORTILLAS?  While I love these fish tacos over the slaw, if you are craving a tortilla to wrap around the slaw and fish, I have a great Paleo tortilla recipe you can use, egg free too!  They are delicious, soft, and pliable with no coconut flavor!

 

Head on over to The Happy Housewife where I have shared this recipe!
