Chocolate Brownies (Coconut Flour)

A chocolate brownie recipe using coconut flour that is a moist and delicious.   As with most brownie recipes these are better the next day.  Gluten free and low carb too.

Moist, soft and no flour!

A brownie dish that went into the favourite list almost upon tasting!   The downside is that you need to bake them a day before as they will only then take on the moist brownie texture but it’s hard to keep them for 24 hours!  They are just so soft and light too.   Yet another example that coconut flour can yield a great brownie/cake.   Gluten free and low carb has never tasted better!

    How many eggs would be needed…? Think they might be missing in the ingredients box…?
