If you are on a limited or restricted diet you will be delighted at how delicious these brownies are. Please see the note at the end regarding GAPS diet compliance.


  • 1 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa or carob powder, sifted
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp flax meal mixed with 6 Tbsp. boiling water


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or melted butter
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients together in another bowl. Mix the dry into the wet and mix until it is thick cake batter consistency. Add a little flour if too runny or add a little milk if too thick.
  • Grease an 8.5 inch square cake pan with coconut oil or butter. Pour batter into pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Brownies will be soft and bubbling but should be done after 50 minutes. Let cool for at least an hour or overnight before serving. They will be very soft and moist.

Note about GAPS: This recipe is not GAPS-legal because it uses chocolate. Also, carob is also not on the allowed list.
