This Paleo brownie recipe is very similar to the chocolate cake recipe. With a few variations, it becomes more thick and moist, like you want in a brownie.
Prep Tips for Best Results
The melted chocolate chips and coconut oil combination should be cooled completely before adding it to the rest of the batter. If you follow the directions and do the melting first, it should be at a good temp by the time you’re finished mixing the other ingredients.
If you like peppermint, include the optional extract. It adds just a little taste for the chocolate peppermint fanatics.
You could also do the regular paleo brownie recipe and add a chocolate glaze, either the plain or peppermint variation. Spread it on top as you would an icing, and refrigerate for an hour or so until the glaze is hardened.

If you include dairy in your diet, whip up some heavy whipping cream. Add to it a teaspoon each of raw honey and vanilla, or to taste. Add a dollop of whipped cream and some shaved dark chocolate, and you will have a nice presentation!
