  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (divided)
  • 1/8 tsp fleur de sel (or other flakey salt - optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cover the bottom of a 8x8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, allowing the parchment paper to overhand on two sides. Grease the sides and bottom of the pan with butter or cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, add almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and instant espresso powder and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add melted butter and sugar. Using a hand mixer, mix together for 1-2 minutes, until light.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly until combined.
  • Gradually add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined and no streaks of the almond flour mixture remain.
  • Reserve one tablespoon of the chocolate chips. Stir the remaining chocolate chips into the brownie batter.
  • Pour brownie mixture until prepared baking pan. Top with remaining one tablespoon of chocolate chips and the fleur de sel.
  • Bake at 350F for 22-25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Bake until the edges of the brownies are set. A toothpick inserted into the middle should come out relatively clean, but some wet crumbs are okay. Do not over bake.
  • Allow to cool completely before lifting the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper. Slice into squares.
