Coconut Fudge Brownies Instructions
- Preheat the oven to 300 and grease a glass baking dish (8×8 or 9×9).
- Melt the butter.
- Mix together all ingredients. You can do this by hand or with an electric mixer or high-powered blender.
- Pour into the baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes before cutting or removing from the pan.
- These store well at room temperature or in the fridge for a few days. Make sure you keep them in an airtight container.

I absolutely LOVE brownies and these are incredible! Chocolate and coconut are a phenomenal superfood combination that boosts brain function and neurotransmitter activity. The pasture-raised eggs provide high quality protein, fat soluble anti-oxidants, CLA and omega-3 fatty acids! What a combination!!!
Coconut flour is an excellent low, carb prebiotic fiber that is a great base and provides our digestive system with good fuel to support a healthy microbiome. Grass-fed butter is rich in butyrate which helps to heal the intestinal lining and the combination of ingredients has a great ketogenic effect on the body which reduces inflammation and improves fat burning.
Megan’s original recipe calls for grade B maple syrup, but I substituted chocolate flavored (Sweet Leaf) stevia in order to keep this low carb. 25 drops should be sufficient but feel free to flavor to your desired level of sweetness! Enjoy!
