Choc Orange Paleo Brownies

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2021

I am on the quest for the BEST wholefood brownies. A few weeks back I made these most delicious choc-orange brownies, and I must say, they are definitely in my top three! I shared my creation on my Stories and had a few people asking for the recipe. Here it is!


  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbs orange zest ( approx 2 oranges)
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 3 Tbs arrowroot flour
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line an 8x8 inch pan with baking paper.
  2. Add the olive oil and coconut sugar to a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand-held mixer. Add the eggs, vanilla, and orange zest to the bowl and beat for about 30 seconds, until everything is well mixed.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, tapioca flour, cocoa powder, and salt with a fork until mixed together. Pour the bowl of dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix with a fork until combined.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly.
  6. Bake for 20-24 minutes (less if you like your brownie gooier, more if you like it more biscuity). Wait 10-15 minutes before cutting up the brownies and serving.
