Are you still making your brownies from a box? Because you could be eating these delicious and moist coconut flour brownies instead. Paleo coconut flour brownies are healthier for you than those “fat-free” brownies from a box. Not only are you getting harmful chemicals, but you’re also getting fat (even if they say fat-free). These brownies are made with coconut flour, which is a healthier alternative to white flour (which is bleached). It is made from ground dried, defatted coconut meat. Coconut flour is high in fiber and low in digestible carbs. Coconut flour is great if you’re on the Paleo diet and those who have gluten allergies.
Coconut flour requires an equal ratio of liquid to flour. It is unsweetened and does not contain added sulfites. This type of flour is considered raw. It is recommended that coconut flour be kept in an airtight container and stored in the fridge or freezer to keep it fresh once it’s been opened.
