Apologies for the all caps. But really…these brownies are about to change your brownie eating lifestyle for the better.

The most FUDGEY brownies that are flourless, nut-free, paleo and they are SO easy to bake.

I constantly find myself craving brownies lately. All day, everyday, ya girl just wants a thick brownie that melts in my mouth when it is warmed up. You know when the chocolate is oozing out and it’s almost too fudgey to even stay together? Ya, that kind of brownie is what we are baking today.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love all my brownie recipes. Especially those chocolate chip cookie brownies. Butt these are next level.

Probably because they require basically no ingredients (but really only 6 key ingredients are needed) and because my favorite dark chocolate is involved.

Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate Gems! Now there is a reason that they call these bad boys gems. They live up to the name too. And let me tell you – you won’t even realize they have no refined sugar in them. They are the healthiest baking and snacking chocolate you could imagine. Sweetened with coconut sugar. Made with all organic ingredients (you know the drill with my Hu fam). Plus the gems melt so perfectly in these brownies, it is basically like eating a lava cake.

Oh and don’t forget to sprinkle some on top after the brownies bake!

Key ingredients needed to bake these flourless brownies:

  1. Creamy tahini. I use tahini in these brownies to make them nut-free and because it is more of a subtle flavored nut/seed butter. Feel free to use whatever nut butter you desire!
  2. Maple syrup. For a little sweetener here in combination with coconut sugar. Sub honey if you prefer!
  3. Coconut sugar. I love baking with coconut sugar. It adds the best sweetener and best consistency to these brownies. Plus it helps keep them refined sugar-free.
  4. Pasture-raised eggs. I haven’t tested flax eggs here. If you do and it works, let me know!
  5. Cacao powder. They key ingredient for all brownies besides the extra dark chocolate of course.
  6. Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate Gems. My obsession. My forever baking addition. These melt SO perfectly in the brownies!! Code RACHL for free shipping ya’ll!

Once you have your gems in the pantry, here are a few of my other favorites to bake with them: Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (paleo + vegan)The Best Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies and Healthy Gluten-free Cheesecake Brownies (grain-free)

  1. I knew these brownies were going to be delicious when the batter was almost too good to leave alone! They taste just like any decadent brownie would. Super fudgy and soft! 10/10 and I will absolutely be making these more often!!

  2. just made a second batch! these are incredible and my new go-to brownie recipe. they are fudgy, rich, and delicious!!

  3. I had to go pretty much completely paleo about a year ago for medical reasons, and I have been searching for a recipe that reminded me of my gluten filled sugary brownies ever since. THESE ARE IT. I’ve made them a couple of times now, and they are ALWAYS hit. No one can believe they are made with tahini! (Don’t let the tahini deter you from making these) Seriously so amazingly fudgy and delicious and the perfect amount of sweetness! Thank you, Rachel!!!

  4. Will be making again. The fiance approves, and he is not a fan of most healthy treats I make. These are so good, fudgy and soft! Taste like a good old Betty Crocker box mixed brownie. Sprinkle some Maldon flaky salt and you’ll be in heaven! 🙂
