The Best Paleo Brownies Ever

Who doesn’t love a brownie?

Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe

“Who doesn’t love a brownie? I know I do. And while I always have a stash of healthy, organic, and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate on hand, sometimes I need something more substantial when I’m craving dessert.

These paleo brownies are guaranteed to curb any sweet tooth and leave you satisfied without wrecking your diet or sending your blood sugar on a roller-coaster. So how’s that possible? For starters, these paleo-friendly brownies are grain-free, and perfect for anyone who has a gluten sensitivity or is eating a low-carb diet. Second, they’re sweetened with maple sugar, one of my favorite natural sweeteners that’s a great alternative to refined sugar.

Just be sure to choose dark chocolate chips that don’t have any artificial sweeteners or preservatives, and you’ll be on your way to the best fudgy paleo brownies you’ve ever had!”
