One of the most common questions that I get goes a little something like this “Help! I’ve bought some coconut flour and don’t know what to do with it or how to bake with it!”.


I’ve got a couple of recipes on my blog already using coconut flour; Coconut Fairy Cakes & No Bake Protein Truffles but I think that this one is my favourite.. healthy chocolate brownies!!!


I’ve included two versions of this brownie recipe – a luxury version (containing 155 calories each) and a lower calorie version (containing just 70 calories each).


In the lower calorie version I’ve swapped a large proportion of the fat (coconut oil or butter) for apple puree (I use the ones from the baby food aisle!) and the sugar for a calorie free sugar alternative – Sukrin Gold, which is seriously an amazing product!!


Do let me know if you have a go at making this recipe too!!



  • 50g coconut flour*
  • 50g cocoa
  • 30g melted butter or coconut oil & 100g apple puree**
  • 3 eggs
  • 100-150g sugar alternative*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or vanilla


*I used Sukrin Coconut Flour & Sukrin Gold (a calorie free alternative to brown sugar) which are available from OcadoWaitrose, Holland & Barrett. 

**For the luxury version swap the 30g of butter and 100g apple puree for 150g butter. The apple puree can also be swapped for a mashed, ripe banana.



Healthy Brownies with Coconut Flour




Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 150 degrees C and mix together the wet ingredients (butter, apple puree if using and eggs).

Step 2

Mix in the coconut flour, cocoa and sugar alternative (I used Sukrin Gold) and cinnamon or vanilla.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into a square baking tin lined with baking powder and bake for approximately 30 minutes until firm.

Step 4

Allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing into 9 or 12 pieces.. and enjoy!

    I’ve tried lots of versions of low carb, sugar free brownies and this one is my favourite. Sweet and chocolatey, hits the spot. I used Ella’s Kitchen apple purée in the baby food section, Sukrin coconut flour and Truvia. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I’ve just made these and added sf marshmallows, I found that the baby purée is rather expensive, so instead I bought a 400g tin unsweetened apple slices and puréed it with a stick blender. Thanks for the recipe!
