Double Chocolate Brownies, With Love

Today is the Superbowl. So, of course, there is a party. At this party there will be many, many things to eat. I will likely want to eat all of them, but am limited by one tiny factor: I don’t eat grains. That means that I cannot give in to the cookies, crackers or other breaded meats. My solution to this ‘problem’ is simple. BYOB. Yep- I’m bringing my own brownies! I love these, and everyone else will love them too.

This recipie is one of my faves since I discovered coconut flour – I modified it from one I found on Elana’s Pantry some months ago. It’s gluten free, processed sugar-free and so chocolatey. I particularly appreciate how easy it is to make. So, go ahead, make yourself some too.
