Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter/ghee)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Optional Garnish

  • flake sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. 
  • Line an 8-inch by 8-inch square cake pan with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • Melt the coconut oil and chocolate chips together in a glass bowl over a double-boiler or in 20-second increments in the microwave. Stir together to combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl add the eggs, coconut sugar, cacao powder, tapioca flour, salt, espresso powder and vanilla extract. Use a hand mixer on low to gently blend the ingredients together for 30 seconds. 
  • Add the room-temperature melted chocolate to the mixing bowl of brownie ingredients and use a hand mixer on medium speed to thoroughly combine. It should resemble cake batter. 
  • Pour the brownie batter into your cake pan and bake for 25-28 minutes. These brownies are best slightly undercooked rather than overcooked.
  • Remove the brownies from the oven and let cool for a couple of minutes, then slice and serve.

Notes

  • This is the espresso powder I use in this recipe and recommend. And I love this flake sea salt for topping on the brownies. 
  • In the video I accidentally say 1/3 cup tapioca flour but 1/2 cup is the correct measurement.
