Ultimate Fudgy Paleo Vegan Brownies (V, GF, DF): an easy, one bowl recipe for seriously fudgy, super moist paleo brownies bursting with rich chocolate flavor. Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo, Dairy-Free.
What’s your favorite dessert? Like, of all time?
If I had to pick one… well, I couldn’t. Let’s be honest. Oh, alriiiight, if I had to pick, it would be a close call between cookies, nice cream and brownies. And candy. Wait, wait, let’s not forget chocolate muffins (but not all the other muffins because no chocolate is involved).
If you were to ask Erik, he would most definitely say brownies. And cookies. And—oh you know where this is going. But one of the things we agree on the most is our love of brownies. There’s just nothing quite like it.
For us, the perfect brownie is a cross between fudge, cake and straight up chocolate. We like our brownies moist, rich as all get out, and so chocolatey even chocolate couldn’t stand up to those brownies in a chocolate contest. 😱
How about you—do you like your brownies cakey or fudgy? Super rich or just kinda rich? How about your preference on moistness? Super, medium, ultimate?
Update: I just made a video for this recipe! In fact, it’s my FIRST video ever!! So, go easy on me! 😉 I hope you enjoy!
Well, I’m totally hoping you just said or thought: seriously fudgy, super duper rich, and ultimate (and deliciously) moist. If you’re nodding your head yes, or your mouth drooled just reading those adjectives, then I have something very special for you…allow me to present:
THE Ultimate Fudgy Paleo Vegan Brownies.
So good. So rich. So fudgy. So moist. So all the things your chocolate lovin’ heart could dream of, GOOD. Like, so good that “THE” had to come in front of it.
I mean, how many recipes can you put “THE” in front of, anyway? It’s an honor only to be bestowed upon the best of the best. Kind of like my Best Vegan Brownies. Which, actually, come to think of it, don’t have “THE” in front of the title, but you know what I mean!
Well, it’s been one year and two weeks since I shared my Best Vegan Brownies with you. Since then, it’s gotten a ton of amazing reviews, been Instagrammed like crazy, and become the staple brownie recipe for many folks—vegans and non-vegans alike.
But since then, no paleo brownies recipe has been shared… Since then, I’ve gotten a ton of requests for a paleo brownie recipe…and since then, a year has passed. I know, I know, I totally dropped the ball. 😞 I just really wanted to share something spectacular.
I wanted the paleo brownie recipe to taste as close to my best vegan brownies as humanely possible. Wait, wait, did I just write “humanely” possible?
I need a nap. And a brownies. Like a GIANT one. 😴
Dagnabit, did I just write “and a brownies”???? 😂
As you know, when baking’s involved, nothing is simple. And neither is typing, apparently. So I tested, I begged, I gave dirty looks, then soothing looks, to all of my baking supplies, and got down to business. (I also took a looooong nap.) And I’m pleased to tell you, IT WORKED. I can finally type cohesively!!
And, oh yeah, I created insanely GOOD brownies. You know I know you know what’s coming… the BB bulletpoint list of Why You Should Make These. Ready? Here we go! (Super Mario voice, duh.)

- ¼ cup natural, unsalted creamy almond butter
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 15 mins)
- ½ cup finely ground, blanched almond flour
- ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup and coconut oil. Whisk until it resembles caramel.
- Add cocoa powder in ¼ cup increments, whisking until well mixed and thick like frosting. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Whisk in vanilla, salt and flax eggs, until well incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, fold in almond flour until you get the consistency of soft dough or very thick batter, and no flour patches remain.
- Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into pan. Using the rubber spatula, smooth batter into an even layer.
- Bake for 28-36 mins. Mine took about 30 minutes. Cool for 1-2 hours, or until completely cool.* Slice into 16 brownies. Enjoy!
- Adapted from my Best Vegan Brownies and Gluten Free Vegan Brownies.
- Store in an airtight container for up to a week at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator if you like them firm.
- These brownies freeze well. Store in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for up to a month. Thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before enjoying. Or, heat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds until warm.
