Almond flour brownies!

Well, this TAP class is kicking my butt. 8 hours a day of a ton of information plus homework is really taking it’s toll. So, I apologize for not making a more exciting post, but this one will be short and sweet. Tonight I attempted almond flour brownies. With crossed fingers, a little prayer, and a lot of luck, they came out delicious. I dug in before I took the picture, so it’s not the prettiest looking shot.

Almond Flour Brownies:
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup coconut milk
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
Topping:
1 cup favorite chocolate chips (I used cacao nibs)
1/4 cup milk (May need slightly more or less depending on the consistency you want)
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in medium size bowl. Mix wet ingredients separately in a large bowl. Mix dry into wet. Pour into a 9×13 lightly greased (I used coconut oil) baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. For topping, combine chocolate, vanilla, and half the milk on the stove at low heat. Let melt completely and constantly stir. Slowly add milk until it gets to a consistency that you want to put on top of the brownies.
