These Easy Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies come together in less than an hour and are SO dense and chewy! Paleo friendly, healthy and SO tasty!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line the bottom of an 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, stir together the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat the sugar and oil just until the sugar is moistened. Add in all the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and beat until JUST combined, only about 20 seconds or so. You don't want to beat too much air into the batter or the brownies will sink when cooking.
Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl and stir (by hand) until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Press the batter into the prepared pan. It is VERY thick so I found using VERY lightly damp hands to work the best. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 26-28 minutes.
Let cool completely before slicing.**
*As with all GF baking, please weigh your flour to ensure results
**The key to super chewy and dense brownies is to cool them fast so they stop cooking. I cool mine on the counter for 5 minutes. Then, I place a hot pad in the fridge and cool them in there for 45 minutes. Don't cool them in the fridge longer or they will dry out.
