Paleo Gluten-Free Chewy Fudgy Homemade Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup 70% dark chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper, covering all four sides of the pan
  3. in a food processor or high speed blender, process the cashews and water until creamy, scraping the sides as needed. Make sure you end up with a very creamy paste and there are no chunks of cashews remaining.
  4. in a bowl whisk the egg, then add all ingredients listed, including the cashew butter and chocolate, and mix to combine. Batter will be thick.
  5. pour batter evenly onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes
  6. set pan on a wire rack to cool then cut into squares
  7. optional: melt about ¼ cup dark chocolate in a double boiler and drizzle over the top of each square. I do this by using a ziplock bag and cutting a small whole on one end.
