Sugar Free Paleo Brownies


Sugar Free Paleo Brownies

These Sugar-Free Paleo Brownies are made with good quality ingredients and fit a Candida diet too. They’re so delicious you’d never know they were made for a specialty diet.

Who Doesn’t love a good brownie?

Brownies remind me of being a kid again, begging my Mother to lick the bowl and mixing spoons.  From the fudgy texture to the chocolatey taste, what’s not to love? Well…to answer that rhetorical question, a lot! Especially, if you’re following a specialty diet. For starters, brownies are typically made with refined white flour and white sugar. Two things most of my clients usually avoid, especially those on a candida diet. Luckily, I’ve found a solution!

Recreating a classic

After years of cooking for personal chef clients all over Los Angeles who are following specific diets, I’ve been hard at work recreating classics in a way that they can still enjoy!  I’m particularly proud of this recipe.  It made it all the way to Ann Boroch’s Candida Cure Recipe Book!  I’d even argue that if you didn’t tell anyone this recipe is good for you, you wouldn’t even know!

These brownies are moist, fudgy and chocolatey delicious!  And if those aren’t enough reasons to make you want to get in the kitchen and whip up a batch, they’re free of gluten, grains, dairy and sugar too. That means that these brownies actually fit a sugar-free, candida diet! Pretty cool, huh. That being said, even if you’re not following a candida diet, chances are you’ll still love these.

A couple notes:

* While following a Candida Diet, it’s recommended to wait at least 60 days before adding cacao back into your diet.  

* For those not following a Candida Diet, coconut sugar or maple sugar can easily be substituted for xylitol and cashew butter can replace almond butter.

Paleo | Gluten-Free | Anti-Candida

Course Dessert
Servings 12 brownies


  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup all natural almond butter creamy, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Xylitol*
  • 1/3 cup coconut or avocado oil melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs hormone free
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract no sugar added
  • coconut oil spray for greasing

Option to top with 1/3 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chips**


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, spraying lightly with coconut oil spray.

  2. Add all of your ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth.  if using chocolate chips, add them and processor for a couple seconds more to fully incorporate.  The batter will be thick.

  3. Place batter into lined baking dish and spread evenly using the back of a spatula or a spoon.  To make this step easier, dip your spatula into a little water to dampen slightly.  This will prevent the batter from sticking while you spread.

  4. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*If Candida is not an issue, you can substitute coconut or maple sugar for Xylitol.
**If topping with chocolate chips, Lily's Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips are recommended.

has anyone tried this with an egg substitute?


This is probably the best recipe I’ve ever made off the internet. Alternative dieting recipe can be very hit or miss, and this one is easy to make, the texture is awesome, and taste truly like brownies. Definitely a win. Thank you for sharing!


Is the coconut milk canned or from a carton? If from a carton could I use almond milk instead?
