Serves 24

  • 1¾ cup walnuts, ground in food processor
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (OR for even moister brownies, melt 2 (5.3 oz) bars Baking Chocolate, 72% cocoa content)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground sea salt
  • 2 large, omega-3, cage free eggs (at room temp)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (room temp) *Omit if you want fudge-like brownies, then reduce baking time by 10 minutes*
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
  • Walnuts for garnish, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray brownie pan with coconut oil.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. In another bowl whisk the eggs, then add coconut milk, and honey (and melted chocolate if using). Add coconut oil and mix until well combined.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Press walnut pieces into the top of batter, if desired.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool well before cutting.
