gluten free brownie recipe

This is the best gluten free brownie recipe that I have ever made. I slaved in the kitchen to come up with a brownie that was healthy and used ingredients that were anti-inflammatory for people with auto-immune diseases.

I gave myself the challenge of exploring my baked treats to come up with something healthy. And this is a delicious treat that everyone loves! While I have always enjoyed a good chocolate bar or bag of chips, I am relying less on them and concentrating on whole-made food.

Gluten Free Brownies

I wanted to focus on finding a dessert that didn’t come from a pre-made box. I wanted to find something that was filled with more vegetables but tasted like a dessert. I think I can give myself A+ on this recipe. If you agree, leave me a comment below.

Paleo Brownies - Ingredients

Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C and many of the B vitamins. It also keeps you fuller for longer and has a sweet taste, so it is a great option for healthy desserts.

Shredded coconut can be easily found in any grocery store. It is a great source of healthy fat and jam packed with manganese.

Maple syrup is a great source of sweetness for any dessert recipe. It has many antioxidant benefits and is a much better sweetener than processed sugars.

Carob powder is a new ingredient for me, but I cannot get enough of it after using it a few times. It is now a staple in my pantry. It is high in fiber without a high sugar content. And most of all, it tastes just like chocolate.
