Gluten-Free Coconut Fudge Brownies That Are Everything A Brownie Should Be

Last updated on

I am not alone when I say that I love brownies! I love their texture, the taste, the layers and most importantly the chocolate. Unfortunately, most brownies are pretty much sugar in square form.

That’s why I love these Coconut Fudge Brownies! Chocolate and coconut are a phenomenal superfood combination that boosts brain function and neurotransmitter activity.  The pasture-raised eggs provide high quality protein, fat soluble antioxidants, CLA and omega-3 fatty acids!

Coconut Flour: The Better Choice

Instead of using refined flour, this recipes uses coconut flour. Coconut flour is an excellent low-carb prebiotic fiber that is a great base and provides our digestive system with good fuel to support a healthy microbiome.

In addition, it comes with the following health benefits:

  • Coconut flour is gluten-free which is extremely beneficial for individuals with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Anyone with a gluten intolerance is at risk of gluten damaging the lining of their small intestines. This can block the intestine from absorbing nutrients in food.
  • Coconut flour can reduce risk of heart disease because it lowers cholesterol levels. This is due to the high levels of dietary fiber found in coconut flour.
  • Coconut flour is packed with proteins (38% of recommended daily intake) which is much higher than any other type of flour.
