Have I got a treat for you today. Delicious, fudge-like brownies that are not even bad for you! No sugar, no flour involved. Almond butter is what makes these brownies perfectly dense and chewy. They melt in your mouth when eaten warm right out of the oven. They are also amazing served with some Paleo ice cream, a classic combo. Ready in only 20 minutes, this recipe is easy to put together and sure to please your sweet tooth.


  • 1 cup paleo-friendly almond butter
  • 1/3 cup grade-A maple syrup,
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp pure baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond butter, syrup, egg, ghee, and vanilla.
  3. Stir in the cocoa powder and baking soda.
  4. Pour the batter into a 9-inch baking pan.
  5. Bake for 20-23 minutes, until the brownie is done, but still soft in the middle.
For a more interesting flavor, try adding sliced almonds!
