But Why Grain-Free Brownies??

Food allergies and intolerances are more commonplace than not nowadays.

Unfortunately, many people are allergic or sensitive to the one ingredient that gives traditional brownies that springy, oh-so-perfect chewy, cakey texture — wheat flour.

At Wildly Organic, we don’t believe in deprivation. Why do without brownies when alternative flours are available?

Coconut flour is an excellent wheat flour substitute… but there are a few things you need to know.

Coconut flour loves moisture. It cannot be substituted cup-for-cup with wheat or even gluten-free flours; you’ll end up with dense, inedible brownies if you try that! Recipes with coconut flour always use more eggs than their conventional counterparts.

We love coconut flour for another reason — lots of folks are allergic or sensitive to nuts, yet coconut flour is actually a nut-free flour!

This flour is so allergy-friendly and so versatile, it can be used in sweet and savory foods alike. Use it as a breading for fish or chicken nuggets, use it in pancakes and waffles, cookies, cakes, and yes… grain-free brownies and these grain-free peanut butter brownie bites!

Try this one out on your friends, your kids, and especially on all the “health food skeptics”. We’re sure they’ll be a new favorite.

And, hey, if they don’t like them, that just leaves more for you, right?
