Fudgy Sunflower Flour Brownies {gf/lf}

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Yay, more 'healthier' desserts! When it comes to food, I don't believe in placing labels, such as "good" or "bad," but I refer to my recipes as 'healthier' because they lack refined sugars and artificial ingredients. Anyway- enough with that spiel, let's get to the point: brownies! Well my friends, these are the fudgiest brownies, and they use a special, gluten free flour: sunflower flour. Just like the sunflower oil I use in other recipes, this flour is a product of local sunflowers from Hudson Valley Cold Pressed Farms. And guess what- you can order their products right from their site, so you can get your hands on this exact flour! This recipe is sweetened with maple syrup and date nectar {what's new}, and uses a mix of coconut butter and grass fed ghee. Ghee is not dairy free, however, it is lactose free! You, of course, can sub additional coconut butter or coconut oil if needed. I love making these brownies for holidays and get togethers, and no one can tell the difference between these and boxed brownies! These brownies are gluten free and lactose free.
