After reading Wheat Belly (which I highly recommend) I finally understood many of the health issues I used to have. Our family tries to limit the amount of wheat in our diet – at least at home.  We are more relaxed about what we eat away from home and we save our favorite wheat-based treats for dinners out and meals with friends and family.

But, I still miss brownies at home. 
Before we started our real food journey, I made brownies often. Sure, I’d use the boxed brownie mix, but I also loved baking from-scratch brownies.


It didn’t take me long to find an alternative to brownies that we could enjoy at home.  I tried several different gluten-free flours and coconut flour seemed to work the best for brownies. (Since creating my coconut flour brownies recipe I’ve also tried this wonderful gluten-free flour from Bob’s Red Mill and love the brownies it makes.  I’ll share the recipe soon.)

My recipe, made with coconut flour and coconut sugar is the answer to my family’s brownie cravings.  It’s dense, delicious and cake-y.  (I believe that if you topped with it frosting, it could actually double as chocolate cake! Check out this great recipe for real food, chocolate frosting.)
