I modified a brownie recipe from Food.com to have healthier ingredients.  It’s really difficult to find pre-made desserts that aren’t loaded with sugar and vegetable oil, so I often wind up making my own.  

These brownies are made of all natural and organic ingredients, and are (almost) sugar-free.  These are so healthy, they’re almost good for you. 
They taste pretty good too. Not amazing, but pretty darn good considering how healthy they are. This is a dessert you can indulge in, (almost) guilt free.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1 cup Stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large organic eggs (or egg whites)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup carob powder (can be found at Whole Foods)
1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
Carob chips to sprinkle on top
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, except the carob chips.
  3. Pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 9 square pan.
  4. Sprinkle desired amount of carob chips on top.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Let cool before cutting, then enjoy!
  • Oops! Accidentally deleted my comment! This recipe looks delish!! Yum!!
    For a gluten free version, I wonder if you substitute the wheat flour for almond flour how it would taste?? I'll try it & let you know!! :))

    • That’s a good idea! I’m sure they will taste just as good 🙂

  • It looks so fluffy. Yummy!

  • *dumb* I had no idea what carob was! Those brownies look like gooey goodness though. Jealous!
