Paleo Brownies recipe


  • 7 mendjool dates, pitted
  • pinch baking soda + 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 oz dark chocolate, 85% of higher
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, warmed
  • 3/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8" x 8" baking pan.  I like to line mine with lightly greased parchemnt paper for easy clean up.  
  • Place dates in small bowl and sprinkle with the pinch of baking soda.  Pour in hot water and let dates soak for 2 minutes.  Drain and set aside.  
  • Melt chocolate and process with softened dates in a food processor 1 to 2 minutes.  Add eggs, process 1 minute.  Add coconut oil, process 1 minute.  Add almond meal/flour, salt and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, process 2 minutes.  
  • Pour into prepared pan and spread around with a spatula to even out surface.  Place in oven and bake about 16 minutes.  A toothpick poked into the center will come out clean.  Cool about 1 hour.  
Note: You can put fruits on the top of your brownies, if you want. Enjoy!
