The Best Paleo Brownie Pie from scratch in under 30 minutes


Paleo Brownie Pie

So listen. I like chocolate. And I like brownies. Because I'm a normal person. This is just a quick and easy way to satisfy those cravings without all the grains and refined sugar. It's also a really great thing to whip up if you have to make a quick dessert for an event or unexpected dinner guests. And it makes your house smell totally AMAZING. I really like using a round cake pan so I can slice the brownies up like a pie ... it just looks fancier. Now, I'll be honest. This isn't the richest or most decadent of chocolate recipes. But if you're trying to do the paleo/healthier living thing, I really think these brownies fit the bill. I like my brownies kinda soft and gooey, so I tend to cook mine for the least amount of time as possible. If you cook them longer, they end up being a lot more cake-like in consistency. But come on, you guys. We are eating brownies that are grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free. They're pretty freakin' good.

  • 1 cup nut butter I use almond or cashew
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Chocolate chips I use Enjoy Life


  • Mix together the nut butter, maple syrup, egg, ghee and vanilla in a bowl. I like to use a mixer because the nut butter is a bit tough to stir by hand.
  • Stir/mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda. Mixture will be on the thick side.
  • Pour batter into a 9-inch baking pan coated with oil/spray. (Pan can be round or square).
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. (Not 100% paleo but close enough in my book.)
  • Bake at 325 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. I like mine on the softer and gooier side, so i always go for the shorter baking time.
