Serving: 24-30 bites, Cook Time: 25 minutes.

What You’ll Need:

  • ¼ cup of cannabutter (either made from coconut or regular butter)
  • ¼ cup of melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • ½ cup of cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon of liquid stevia
  • ½ cup of honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

The Process:

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The best option for this recipe is to use a mini muffin pan. If you happen to have one, use a little coconut oil to grease each circle on the pan so that the deserts won’t stick while baking.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sea salt, baking soda, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, stevia, coconut oil, and cannabutter. Add this blend into the larger, dry ingredients bowl. Blend everything together. Finally, whisk in the honey and portion the batter evenly into the mini muffin tray.
  3. Place the filled tray in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Test if they are done cooking by trying to twist the brownies out. They should be removed easily. If they seem to be sticking, then they are not ready and should be baked a little longer. Once ready, set them aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Top them with a little whipped cream, add them to ice cream or simply eat them plain and enjoy.
