Hemp and Fudge Paleo Brownies

How about we make everyday brownie day? Seriously! Especially with these delicious super chocolatey paleo brownies!

And not only are they gluten free and paleo, but they are also low carb and pretty darn close to keto. If you are ok with a little bit of honey, then these are certainly keto friendly as well. That’s like a quadruple score!

It is so much fun to cook using a skillet. Whether it is dinner or dessert, a skillet just makes everything better!

How to Make Paleo Brownies

Hemp Butter

Start by placing the hemp seeds in a high speed blender or food processor and blending until the oils start to release and become creamy, about 3 minutes.

Add in the remaining ingredients and blend until it resembles the consistency of nut butter.

Brownie

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Place the hemp butter in a medium bowl and stir in all brownie ingredients. Taste for sweetness and add a bit more than the additional 2 tablespoons if desired.

Pour the batter into a 6 inch cast iron skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle.

Pretty simple, right?

Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds

According to Healthline, Hemp Seeds are loaded with health benefits[1]:

  1. They are rich in both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as high in vitamin E and other minerals.
  2. Hemp seeds may reduce the risk of heart disease and also reduce dry skin (hello dry skin on my face…..)
  3. They are a great source of plant proteins!
  4. Lastly, hemp seeds may reduce PMS symptoms (I’m all over that!) and may aid digestion.

All in all, some pretty awesome little seeds.

Do These Paleo Brownies Taste Nutty or Chocolatey?

Most definitely chocolatey! You get all the health benefits of the hemp hearts and all the flavor from the chocolate!

And if you are a chocolate lover like I am, then be sure to make up a batch of these delicious Paleo Chocolate Muffins!

Do I Have to Grind the Hemp Hearts?

I have many recipes where I use the whole hemp hearts (ex, dairy-free crispy chips) but in the case of brownies, yes you do what to send them through the blender quick.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t want to feel anything crunchy in my brownies. Unless, of course, they are macadamia nut brownies!

So just pop them in the blender quick and you’ll be good to go!

Hemp Brownie Toppings

Low carb, Paleo ice cream for the win! There is almost nothing better than a warm brownie topped with ice cream.

You could also drizzle some paleo chocolate or throw some berries on there.

So many options!

How to Store Paleo Brownies

As with most baked goods, you will want to store these fudgy paleo brownies in an airtight container and in the refrigerator.

Now, that assumes that you have leftovers – which is doubtful!
