These rich, delicious, intensely chocolaty, Paleo(ish) brownies are packed with nutritional goodness from raw cacao, coconut oil, maple syrup and almond flour. This is one decadent treat you can feel good about eating and they are naturally gluten free. The texture is on the cakey side but will get fudgier if they are refrigerated overnight. If you really want to take your dessert over the top add some Paleo chocolate sauce for a truly indulgent experience.
