Coconut Flour Chocolate Brownies

Coconut Flour Chocolate Brownies

I love chocolate and love to create desserts. I have been using coconut flour, but its been a slippery slope for me, in terms of the right consistency. I am getting there and will soon be on my way to creating more of my own dessert creations for everyone.

In looking online I found this amazing website, Comfy Belly, and then I found what I was looking for…. Coconut Flour Brownies…. Of course I adapted things the way I like and these came out amazing. They are not cake like or fudgey like brownies, but more of a tarte like texture…..

I warm a piece up at night with some greek yogurt on top! Perfect, filling and healthy dessert! Love it…. I hope you do too!

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

About Lisa Lamb

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
