  • 1/2 tablespoon butter for pan
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter the bottom and sides of a square 8-inch Pyrex baking dish.
  • Lightly whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, melted butter, and vanilla, just until incorporated. You don’t want too much air in the batter or it will end up cake-like and not dense and chewy as a brownie should be.
  • Using a fine-mesh strainer, gradually sift the cocoa powder into the mixture, stopping once in a while to whisk it in.
  • Add the coconut flour and the salt, whisking to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, using a rubber spatula to get it all out of the bowl.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out not wet but not completely dry, with a few moist crumbs. This should take 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. 
  • Cool the brownies for 30 minutes, in the pan, before cutting into squares and serving.
