  • Presoak the ground flax seed with the 1/2 cup warm water for 10-15 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, or grease the baking pan.
  • Blend the Pili Hunters pili nuts or macadamia nuts with the coconut oil in a high powered blender until smooth and creamy. This will be a thin nut butter consistency.
  • Next blend the dark chocolate chips right into the nut butter mixture. You can do it this way instead of melting the chocolate.
  • Add all the dry ingredients (almond flour, sweetener, cacao powder, soda, and salt) to a medium sized mixing bowl and mix together until well combined
  • Add the soaked ground flaxseed and the nut butter mixture from the blender into the dry ingredients. Mix until all combined.
  • Spread the brownie batter into the lined or greased 8x8 baking pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out fairly clean.
  • Let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.


Feel free to use any dark chocolate in this recipe, I do recommend staying above 85% though.  You can use 100% baking chocolate also if you'd like.
Also make sure your pili or macadamia nuts blend up completely in your high powered blender so that it is a very smooth consistency.
Make sure to let them cool completely or they may be a little soft.  They will firm up perfectly once they have cooled.
