Clean Eating Brownies

Just made these brownies and the only thing bad about  them was that I couldn't stop eating them. I have to  remember that  just because they are clean doesn't mean I  can eat the  whole tray..oops. I tried one batch as is, and in another batch I added 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. The  batch without the PB tasted better to me.

Enjoy :) INGREDIENTS: 1/3 cup coconut flour  1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder. 1/3 cup  coconut oil 5 whole eggs  1/2 cup maple syrup. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract  DIRECTIONS: 1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together coconut flour and cocoa  powder.  2. Whisk in the coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Blend well.  3. Pour batter into a greased baking dish ( I used a muffin  pan) and bake at 350 F. For about 30 minutes.  4. Allow to cool.
