Lemon Brownies With Coconut Lemon Glaze • Paleo, low carb, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free
This recipe is now one of my all time favorites and it gives me great pleasure to know that I can share it with so many people.
Eating healthy is no longer boring or tasteless. There are so many ways to make delicious meals and treats with real, nutritious foods! I am determined to reach more people everyday and teach them how to substitute refined and processed ingredients with truly natural ones.
The consistency of these brownies is so perfect! The best words to describe them are moist, fluffy, soft, lemony, not too sweet and fully satisfying.
I think one of the main secrets to making these savory treats turn out so well, is by using high quality ingredients. With that being said, specifically the brand of almond flour that you use in baking, will affect the overall consistency of your brownies. I have listed all the ingredients I use to make this recipe below.
I have also put together this step-by-step instructional video so that you can see every step along the way. Hit play below and as always I would love it if you left me your comments and feedback below.
