Brownies. Just like the Cavemen ate.

I got this recipe from Amy off of the Crossfit Peachtree blog. They turned out so great and are completely paleo friendly. Enjoy.

1 (16) ounce jar salted almond butter, smooth roasted
2 eggs
1 cup agave nectar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

In a large bowl, blend almond butter until smooth with a mixer
Blend in eggs, then blend in agave and vanilla
Blend in cocoa, salt and baking soda.

Grease a 9 x 13 pyrex baking dish
Pour batter into dish
Bake at 325° for 30-40 minutes

I used an 8x8 corning ware dish and cooked them for 40 minutes and they were perfect.

Update on the competition: I am working hard to eat only Paleo food and I am actively keeping my food journal which I will post each week. I ate a brownie after dinner last night which was a great for my chocolate cravings, since they are paleo friendly, I didn't feel so bad.

On another note, this is the view from my desk in the office :(

I feel as though we have completely skipped over fall and went straight into winter. It has been raining in Atlanta for more days than I care to count. I see the sun peeking through the trees today so I hope that more fall is still to come! We haven't even gotten a pumpkin yet!
More from my paleo kitchen tomorrow!
