These coconut flour brownies are super fudgy and are also paleo, grain-free and dairy-free! Topped with chocolate fudge frosting. Scroll to the bottom of the post for a how-to recipe video.

Before you read any further – I just wanted to say that the pictures don’t do these brownies justice! They’re much fudgier than the overbaked ones in the photos. :)

I keep getting questions about how to make this and that recipe with just coconut flour and not a blend of almond flour and coconut flour, which is what I usually use, like in these paleo carrot muffins or paleo peanut butter cookies. I’m not usually a fan of treats with just coconut flour. The often have a weird, eggy texture and not-so-awesome taste (at least in my opinion), so I have very few recipes that call for just coconut flour.

These coconut flour brownies are an exception! They’re every bit as delicious as traditional brownies. People won’t even know that these are gluten-free, much less made with just coconut flour.

I also experimented with making these brownies vegan. That didn’t work out at all. Do not try using egg replacer in these! At least not chia or flax eggs. They came out so greasy!

I’ve been playing around with this coconut flour version for about a year and one thing is super clear – the order in which you add the ingredients is really important! If you don’t do it the way it’s written, the wet and dry ingredients don’t really combine well and the result is oily.

These coconut flour brownies are also paleo (if you leave out the sprinkles)! And the most delicious paleo brownies I’ve ever had. They’re a bit heavy on the sugar (though not compared to a traditional brownie recipe), but they are brownies so I’m not going to beat myself up over it.

And they’re also nut-free. Something that’s not all that common with paleo desserts! I love my almond flour and nut butters but don’t miss them at all in these brownies.

Like the original gluten-free brownie recipe, these are also dairy-free. Though if you want to use butter in place of the coconut oil, I’m pretty sure you can! They’ll just be a tiny bit less fudgy.

And these are incredibly fudgy so a tiny bit less gooey is no big deal.

You can either throw chocolate chips into the batter or use the paleo chocolate fudge frosting that I did. The recipe is listed below but check out that post if you want to read the reviews for the frosting. Just if you need convincing. ;)

I’ve answered most sub questions in the post above but here it is again for easy reference!

Substitution questions:

  • Can I omit the eggs / use an egg replacement? I tried with chia and flax eggs and they were a complete disaster. I don’t recommend trying that or any egg replacer. And definitely don’t just omit the eggs.
  • Can I use another type of flour?

    You can! Go check out my gluten-free brownies recipe for instructions on how to make them with teff, buckwheat, or whole wheat flour.

  • Can I use something else in place of the coconut sugar? You can use granulated sugar (which means they’re no longer paleo). Liquid sweetener won’t work. I also have no idea how to make these low-carb.

Wondering what else to do with coconut flour? Try these coconut flour chocolate pancakes from Pint Sized Baker!
