The Best Brownies Ever…(and they are paleo!)

Remember how I told you that I found a new brownie recipe that I resisted posting for months because I didn’t want to taunt the girls in Lurong?  Well, I have made those brownies so many times now, it is ridiculous.  I have also made them for nutrition class and gotten rave reviews.  I have also made non-paleo peeps stuff them in their mouth without any disdain!  I have also had nutrition patients take them to Thanksgiving because they were that good!!! Yesterday, my hormones were outta control, so I decided I wanted to make some type of dessert with maca.  Maca is a plant known for its hormone balancing effects.  I thought it would go awesome in some brownies….and then I kept remembering how much I love the chocolate caramel coffee bars from PaleOMG because they have the salt chunks on top. Mmmm…salty sweet.  Baby was born.  I loved this version so much!!! However, you can omit the salt and maca and just have the best regular brownies, too. ;)…or just omit the maca and have salted brownies!!!

Salted Maca Brownies


  • 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp maca (optional)
  • 1 stick grassfed butter (you could sub coconut oil)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I’ve used chocolate bars, chocolate chips, and enjoy life chunks…all work)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3-1/2 coconut sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • coarse ground salt to top (optional)


Preheat oven to 350.  Grease an 8×8 pan. Melt the butter, sugar, chocolate together on the stove top or in the microwave.  Once combined, add vanilla and eggs.  Add the rest of the dry ingredients.  Pour into pan and sprinkle salt on top.  Bake for around 20 minutes until the pan stops giggling on you. ;)
