Rich chewy double chocolate brownies made with the amazing Pili Hunters pili nuts (or macadamia nuts)!
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
Servings: 16 brownies
Calories: 155 kcal
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 3/4 cup Pili Hunters pili nuts
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 cup erythritol or monk fruit
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or 4 ounces 85% chocolate stevia sweetened are lowest carb
- 1/3 cup coconut oil or avocado oil
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1/2 cup warm water
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.
