These are the 9 best Paleo brownies that will help you satisfy your chocolate cravings. Although not all of these recipes are chocolate. You deserve a sweet treat once in awhile. There seem to be 2 different kinds of the Paleo brownies recipes.
One kind of paleo brownies recipes are made with an alternate kind of flour such as coconut flour or almond flour. The other kind is made with no flour at all and the main ingredient might be zucchini or plantains or banana or almond butter. Some of these kinds of paleo brownies recipes may or may not be baked but may be raw.
In my opinion, the latter just aren’t brownies so I tried to avoid that kind as much as I could. Some of these have bananas or pumpkin in them but it isn’t the main ingredient. Those recipes also have some kind of flour and the pumpkin and bananas only add moisture and flavor.
I love brownies for two reasons: they taste good and they are easier to make than cookies. Simply because you only have to bake one pan of them. I like mine nice and chewy and I like to make them because I can mix them with my mixer easily and dump them in a pan and bake them and be done with it. None of that getting a spoonful of dough just the right size and then doing that over and over again and then baking them over and over again. Only one pan to bake and you’re done.
It’s time to make your choice from the best Paleo brownies below and start baking it up.

Best Paleo Brownies Recipes
1. Vanilla Almond Brownies – My Natural Family
These brownies are easy to make and taste really good. I know they aren’t chocolate but sometimes you just don’t want chocolate. Maybe you can’t or shouldn’t eat chocolate either. These are just a basic brownie recipe without the chocolate but I think they are still delicious. They remind me of brownies my mother used to make when we wanted a treat but didn’t have much money to spend on ingredients.
2. Maple Pecan Brownies – Everyday Maven
These are rich and fudgy but not overly sweet. You can taste the maple flavor a little and it pairs wonderfully with the pecans and the crunch they add is nice. Just a couple tips: If you store them in a plastic container they will get moist. Put them on a plate and cover them with some tin foil. Bake them in a disposable foil pan that you can buy at the $ store. Instead of having to dig them out of a pan and some of them being messed up when you serve them. You can cut the sides of the foil pan and tear the sides down and get them out easily. Just throw the cut up pan away.
3. Dark Chocolate Peppermint Brownies – A Clean Bake
Did you know there are two kind of people? The cakey brownie people and the dense brownie people. These are dense brownies just to warn you cakey brownie people. These are a very dense chocolatey, fudgy, melt in your mouth kind of brownie. Skip the sprinkles “Jimmies” they aren’t Paleo. All they are is sugar.
4. One-Bowl Fudgy Pumpkin Brownies – Ambitious Kitchen
Putting pumpkin in these brownies adds moisture, vitamin A and fiber. There is no pumpkin spice so you really can’t taste the pumpkin at all, especially with the cocoa powder in it. If you want it to taste pumpkin-y you could add a little pumpkin spice. They really taste kind of fudgy but they aren’t that heavy.
5. Double Chocolate Paleo Brownies – My Natural Family
These Paleo brownies are nice and fudgy but they are still fluffy enough to be considered brownies. When you eat them you’ll wonder if they really are Paleo. They have a secret ingredient (avocados) that helps keep them dense and extra moist and yes, healthy. I guarantee you’ll never know the avocados are in them. If you like nice fudgy brownies then these are for you.
6. The Perfect Brownies – One Lovely Life
Emily thinks that almond flour is the best flour to use when making brownies. It helps them achieve that fudgy texture instead of a cakey texture. She says that almond flour isn’t empty calories because they are just ground nuts with protein and other nutrients. Emily has some interesting baking ground rules to follow that are interesting. You might want to check them out.
7. Brownies with Salted Chocolate Ganache – Flavour and Savour
What do you think of when you hear hazelnuts and chocolate. You guessed it! Nutella. Well, these have hazelnuts and chocolate but these are a much healthier option. These have just enough hazelnut crunch mixed in with all that fudgy chocolate goodness. They are topped with an easy and quick ganache. Yes, by easy I mean you stir chocolate and coconut oil together.
8. Brownies with Avocado Ganache – The Loopy Whisk
If you want a healthy brownie, these are about as healthy as you can get. Even though they are healthy they are still perfectly dense, sweet and delicious and of course fudgy. The avocado ganache really makes them more spectacular. To answer that question on your mind, NO you can’t even taste the avocado. Avocados just make the ganache nice and creamy.
9. Gingerbread Brownies – Amy Sheree
Imagine chocolatey rich brownies with a hint of gingerbread. They are filled with rich chocolate and topped with mini chocolate Chips. Avocados are added to make them creamy and moist. The combination of chocolate and gingerbread seems like a match made in heaven.
