These Super Fudgy Brownies are the best healthy fudgy brownie recipe ever. Made using almond flour, cocoa powder, and no refined sugar – they are gluten free, dairy free, and still the fudgiest brownies ever!
I’ve been on the world’s largest search to find the best ever fudgy brownie. I mean I want to bite my teeth into the middle and have it be like straight fudge. None of that cakey business here.
I’ve spent the past two weeks in my kitchen creating recipes that kept coming out cakey, and while the brownie taste was SPOT on, every paleo brownie that I made was missing a fudge factor.
Those recipes will be shared…but they won’t be quite as fudgy as these delicious paleo brownies.
Imagine biting into a dense, rich, underbaked brownie that is literally dripping with chocolate, has the perfect consistency, well, that’s literally what these brownies are like except they are actually fully baked and so delicious.
If you love chocolate and brownies as much as I do, you have to bake my Chocolate Zucchini Brownies next.
Why are these super fudgy brownies so fudgy?
All of my brownies kept rising into cake like brownies, and no matter how much moisture I put into them, they would still be super moist but yet super cakey. So then I got to thinking, well, in order to prevent them from rising, let’s take out the leavening agents.
I decided to take out any of the baking soda that I was originally working with and that was the ultimate game changer.
When you take out the leavening agent, you’re left with a dense, solid, non-risen fudgy brownie. I literally cut into them and was screaming for joy because of the fudge factor.
What makes these brownies paleo?
These brownies are paleo because they are completely dairy free, refined sugar free, and gluten free! All of the things on the paleo diet that you can’t have.
But don’t let that deter you….I fed these to not one single person following the paleo diet and they all determined that they were the best brownies they ever had.
If you would have told me when I was a kid that I could eat healthy brownies one day, I would have been the happiest.
What are in these super fudgy brownies?
That’s it! Seven basic ingredients to make the best fudgy brownies. Just one bowl, one spoon, and about thirty minutes and you got yourself a tray!
How do you store these brownies?
I like to store these brownies by wrapping them in aluminum foil and keeping them on my counter. They will stay good for up to one week!
You can also freeze these brownies by wrapping them up well in foil and placing in a ziplock bag. They will stay good in the freezer for about 3-4 months, but trust me, you’re going to want to eat them before that!
