Paleo Chocolate Cherry Brownies


  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 T. + ¼ c. coconut oil melted
  • ½ c. maple syrup preferably local
  • ¼ c. almond milk unsweetened
  • 1 t. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ c. coconut flour
  • ¼ c. cocoa powder
  • ½ t. baking soda
  • ½ t. salt
  • 1 c. chopped pitted cherries


  • Place top oven rack in center position and preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8-inch brownie pan with 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, ¼ cup melted coconut oil, maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla until completely smooth. Set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  • Add the chopped, pitted cherries and any juices (if using frozen cherries) and fold until combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and place in the pre-heated oven to bake until the brownies are set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, approximately 25-30 minutes. (Cooking time will vary by oven. Check after 20 minutes and adjust cooking time accordingly).
  • Remove from oven and cool to room temperature before slicing into squares and serving. Enjoy!
