Triple choc chunk brownies! The best paleo brownie recipe we’ve made!

Oh yeh… triple choc chunk brownies just went down! We can officially report this is the best paleo brownie recipe we’ve made! 

And we’ve made a bunch of brownie recipes. Recipes with sweet potato, recipes with pumpkin, with raspberries and no sweetener. But this is officially the best paleo brownie recipe. So if you’ve never made one of our old paleo brownie recipes start with this one!

The brownie bit is to-die-for-delish by itself but Carla went and created this choc banana frosting and it’s epically drool worthy ahhhh-mazing. 

Plus it’s a super easy recipe, so it ticks all our Merry boxes. 

It’s got the delish factor and the easy factor. Boom. Time to schedule your triple choc chunk brownie bake up day (yah?! YAH!).


OK, let’s talk more about this easy factor. You don’t need a mix master or blender for the brownie bit. So if you’re yet to invest or if yours has recently blown up or you just hate all recipes with extra cooking machines… THIS is the recipe for you!

You might need to swap the banana frosting to something else if you’re sans a blender. We vote, go buy some store bought sugar free chocolate, melt it on the double boiler and drizzle it all over your brownie. 

Oh, we’ve decided this would be a fun and yum idea even if you do have a blender/mix master!

Yep this really is the…

BEST paleo brownie recipe ever!

Always merrymaking,

  2. In a large bowl mix the almond meal, cacao, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix the eggs, butter, rice malt syrup, nut butter, coconut milk and vanilla until smooth and combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients slowly to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  5. Lastly, add the choccy and nut chunks, stir and YUM!
  6. Transfer the batter into the prepared tin and place into the oven for 15 minutes.

  8. To make the frosting, simple place all ingredients (except the banana) into a blender or food processor and whiz until smooth and combined.
  9. Add the banana and whiz again until thick and smooth.
  10. Cover the brownies with frosting and grate a little extra sugar free chocolate on top!

    Hey Lynda! We just use the No Sugar brand or loving earth 🙂 but your local bulk whole foods or Source Bulk wholefoods should sell it in bulk! 😀

  2. Do you think it would be possible to sub the banana in the frosting for half an avocado maybe? Im not a big fan of chocolate/banana flavor combo. Thankyou!!

  3. Hi did you guys use sugar free dark chocolate or milk chocolate? Also where do you source the No Sugar brand chocolate?


  4. Post

    Yes, sugar-free chocolate 🙂 The No Sugar brand is just from our local supermarket. Another brand is Loving Earth or check out the local health food store. YAY!

  6. Can I substitute Stevia for the rice syrup/honey? as I am on a sugar ban for Lent!

  9. Can you use flour instead of blanched almond meal? Or is there an easy to find alternative?

  15. These are amazing! I made them this morning to share with a friend but I was wondering if they are reezable, as it made quite a lot. I’d love to freeze them and pull them out when visitors pop in…. Thank you!!!

  17. hey
    i just made the brownies, I used left over coconut from making coconut milk, instead of the Almond… they are awesome.
    I had a very hard time with the frosting though. the substance was to thick and my blender couldn’t process it. It became a giant goo ball and transferring it to the food processor didn’t help. Any advice on how to make it look like in the picture? What nut butter did you use?

  18. Post

    Hey Lena! YUM! Sounds epic! Sounds like you needed to add a little more liquid? Our blender is very strong and high powered so blitzes through frozen nana like no tomrorow! 🙂 Add some coconut milk next time for a smoother/runnier frosting! <3
