Paleo Chocolate Chewy Brownies

We are on a Paleo kick in our house. For lent, we gave up sugar including honey and syrup. Needless to say, we found this to be so hard. I think it was a case of the “heart grows fonder when your apart” scenario. The craving for sweets slowly set in, and the need to create something within the perimeter of our fast was necessary to maintain. Thus, this brownie recipe emerged. This is great for the person who can’t seem to break the vicious cycle of sugar withdrawals.  The brownie is high in fiber from the coconut flour as well as nutritionally dense leaving you more satisfied. It is made with coconut oil that is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, and the minimal sugar substitutes used make it low glycemic. I should add that they are slightly sweet. These brownies freeze great, so cut them out and enjoy them as needed.
