Indulgence meets great balance with this delicious recipe for healthy, paleo brownies. A mix of better-for-you-alternative ingredients, it’s a good example that what’s something classically scrumptious can stand to face an update. Here’s what you’ll need:

Brownie bite



  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • ⅓ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp prepared coffee (cool or room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips, divided
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp refined coconut oil


  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • 1 ½ cups icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp prepared coffee (cool or room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


For the brownies:

  • Preheat oven to 325º F.
  • Line a 8×8" baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine eggs and coconut sugar. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat for 3-5 minutes on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add in almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, cooled coffee, and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.
  • In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 cup chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave until the chocolate has just melted. Stir until completely smooth, then pour into the brownie batter. Mix well.
  • Fold in the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips.
  • Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes.

For the frosting:

  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the vegan butter until fluffy. Add in the icing sugar ½ cup at a time. Beat for 2 minutes, scraping down the sides. Add in vanilla and prepared coffee and beat again.
  • Remove brownies from oven and let cool.
  • Spread frosting over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings or instant coffee grinds. Cut into 12 squares and enjoy!
