These brownies are a healthier version in comparison to your average brownie. Instead of being laden with sugary chocolate, I've used raw cacao nibs instead, adding an antioxidant boost while still providing a great chocolaty taste.

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil/butter (omit butter for strict Paleo)
  • 1 tbsp of cacao nibs
  • a sprinkle of desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla essense
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of bread soda
  • 1 tsp of baking powder


  1. First, mash ripe bananas on a plate. In a separate bowl, combine coconut flour, baking soda and baking powder.

  2. In another bowl, combine the melted butter/coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla essence and coconut milk. Add the mashed banana and mix thoroughly.

  3. Now, add the dry ingredients and the cocao nibs to the above mixture and again...mix thoroughly. If you think the mixture is too dry, add some extra coconut oil/butter/milk.

  4. Place all your ingredients into your prepared dish/tray and smooth the top with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Bake for about 25-30 minutes.

Why is "bread soda" so called instead of bicarbonate of soda? Had to research to find out!
