Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 16 brownies


  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted plus slightly more for coating pan(s)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup green banana flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips/chunks (ensure dairy and soy-free)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 jar Simple Mills Frosting (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat inside of baking pan(s) with coconut oil to prevent sticking. One 8" x 8" pan OR two 6" round pans works well.
  • Mix wet ingredients together in a bowl (maple syrup, coconut oil, egg yolks). Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl (green banana flour, cocoa powder, and salt). Combine wet and dry ingredients in a single bowl.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir to incorporate. Pour brownie batter into baking pan(s) and smooth out batter evenly.
  • Bake for 20 minutes (25 minutes if making a double-batch). Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting or optional frosting.
  • If frosting (optional), do so when brownies are completely cooled. May garnish with additional chocolate chips or grated chocolate, if desired.


May be made in advance. Freezes well.
