    I’m a little disappointed that these brownies turned out dry, flat and not soft and chewy as I was expecting. I used coconut sugar in place of honey, however per the comments, it was said it wouldn’t affect the brownies. Though the flavor was good, I’m not sure I’ll make them again 🙄.

      Are you sure you didn’t leave out or replace anything else? With almost 1 cup of almond butter & coconut oil combined and an egg, I just don’t see how these brownies would turn out dry. Did you use almond flour or coconut flour (that alone can make a huge difference)! Yes, i have made it with both coconut sugar and honey, and they turn out great every time. Hope you give it a try again, I am sure you will love them. 🙂

    This is a fantastic recipe! Gluten free and sweetened with honey. Exactly the type of recipe I need. These brownies are delicious, and are the closest thing to the great baked goods I used to be able to enjoy before I had to go GF and sugar free. Thanks so much for the recipe. I will be checking out your other recipes!!

    Allergy to honey. Would maple syrup work just as well? Or agave?

      I have not tried this recipe with maple syrup. I think it would still taste great but because maple syrup is a little bit more runny than honey, I am not sure how the texture will be.

    These brownies are as good as my own recipe except without all the calories, I love them and will replace my recipe with this one for sure.


    Hi there! This recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it!!! One question for you, is there a way to leave out the sweetener altogether? Could I just add more oil to keep the consistency or what would your recommendation be? Thanks in advance! Amy

      Hi Amy, unfortunately, I don’t think it will work if you leave out the sweetener altogether. But this recipe for Banana Walnut Brownies is similar and uses mainly bananas as a sweetener (plus some coconut sugar). I haven’t tried to leave out the coconut sugar but it might work well!


    Hey! Just tried these for the first time today, I followed the recipe exactlt. And they came out delicious! Brownies are my favorite dessert and I am so happy that I can make them this way and feel good about eating them! I have no food allergies, just wanted to try something different and healthier. I also shared some with my husband and didnt even tell him what the ingredients were, and he loved them! Haha. Thank you so much for sharing all your recipes!

      That’s great, Emily! So glad that you and husband enjoyed these brownies! 🙂 They sure are delicious!

    Loved it! There is a bake shop that sells paleo brownies for $5.00 a square. Now I can make them myself and they are just as delicious. Thank you so very much for the recipe.

      So glad you liked them, Krystal!! Yes, homemade is always better! 🙂

    I haven’t made this yet but it seems so good. I was wondering if it may be similar to the taste of the Base Culture Almond Butter Brownie? And if i could subsitute Coconut Flour for Almond Flour?

    Ella Wilbraham

    Hello! These look amazing! Would love to try although I have a big box of coconut sugar in the cupboard and wondered if the honey could be substituted for this? Any thoughts would be welcome! Thsnks ELla Xx

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Ella, you can substitute the honey with coconut sugar. I have tried it both ways and it works great.

    These are honestly the best brownies ever. So so delicious! I have made them at least 5 times now, and will again tonight. Thank you so much for this recipe! My boyfriend and I devour them lol

    Family fav! Thanks for this incredible recipe 😊



      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      HI Ellen, it might have been the honey. Sometimes when I use a certain kind of honey, mine collapse in the middle as well. But not always, it’s strange. I would suggest you try the recipe with coconut sugar instead.

    I have no dietary restrictions or preferences, just healthy and well balanced, but these are by far the best brownie recipe! And delightfully guilt free

      Awesome! So glad you liked them!

    Keto friendly honey alternative:
    Make a simple syrup:
    I used 1/2 cup Swerve, 1/2 cup beet sugar (I don’t like the aftertaste of Swerve. If you don’t mind it, you could use 1 cup of Swerve instead of cutting it with beet sugar), and 1/2 cup water.
    Boil for a few minutes, until slightly thick.
    -after measuring the “honey,” I had about 2oz left over. You could use this syrup in your coffee, tea, or lemonade. You could add it to a food processor with some bee pollen and make it honey flavored.

    I made these brownies 2x:
    Once with just using dry sweetener, which was really dry in the end, because honey is a wet ingredient. And the 2nd time with the simple syrup.
    Both are chocolatey, and I still ate the first batch, even though they were dry.
    But the 2nd batch was fudgey and chewy. Like you would expect brownies to be. I also used Lilys brand of chocolate chips.

    Made these tonight and they are super yummy! I used parchment paper to keep them from sticking and it worked perfectly. Thank Kay for the recipe!


    Would butter work in place of coconut oil? My friend is allergic to coconut. Thanks!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Kat, I haven’t tried it with butter but I think it will work. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂


    These were wonderful, i am a newly diagnosed metabolic syndrome person so diabetes is in that bundle and i have been searching for something chocolate and hands down this recipe wins. Its hard to make this transition to watching what i eat and this recipe made it so much easier to transition
