Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Paleo Brownies

IMG_20170914_155007.jpg

When we started trying to eat healthier, I experimented with a ton of Paleo brownie recipes (because chocolate is one of those things that I just can’t give up). Every batch tasted close, but something was just off, usually the texture. That sent me on a quest for the perfect Paleo brownie, and after lots of trial and error I arrived at this recipe. These are a household favorite and something we frequently make for friends and family who aren’t necessarily gluten-free & dairy-free. I hope your family loves them just as much as we do!

**I have also recently subbed the arrowroot powder for Rootz Paleo Protein Powder to give them a little boost of nutrients. If you would like to try this, sub the arrowroot powder for 1 scoop Rootz banana chocolate protein powder, and up the amount of coconut oil to 1/3 cup. I use this protein powder.

Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup sweetened almond butter (like @justins maple almond butter or @wild_friends)
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- Heaping 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)- don’t skimp here
- 3 Tbs. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- ¼ cup arrowroot powder OR 1 scoop ROOTZ Nutrition Banana Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips (I like @enjoylifefoods)
- Sea Salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix everything except the arrowroot powder (or protein powder), cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Once well mixed, add in arrowroot powder and cocoa powder. When combined, add chocolate chips. Pour into an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper and spread out uniformly. Bake at 325 for 20-22 minutes. Sprinkle the top with sea salt after they come out of the oven. (Baking time may vary slightly depending on your oven.)
