Paleo Toasted Coconut Brownies (GF)

Prep Time: 10 minutes



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 in x 9 in pan and line the pan with parchment paper.
  • Toast the shredded coconut --> Put 1 cup of shredded coconut and 2 tsp of maple syrup in a large frying pan and heat over medium heat. Mix everything together and then mix every so often until the coconut has toasted, about 3-5 minutes (could be more or less time depending on the heat of your stovetop).
  • In a large bowl, mix olive oil, 1/2 cup maple syrup, and vanilla together with a whisk. Whisk in eggs.
  • In another bowl, mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt with a fork.
  • Mix the bowl of dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix.
  • Fold in 3/4 cups of the toasted coconut and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes, until the brownie pulls away from the edges of the pan. Remove from the oven, let sit for a few minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Melt ¼ cup of the chocolate chips with ¼ tsp coconut oil in the microwave. Drizzle the chocolate on top of the brownies and smooth over the top evenly with a knife. Top the chocolate with the remaining ¼ cup toasted coconut.
