Paleo brownies

Mmm, these brownies are amazing!  I can't believe there is no flour used.  No, I am not going paleo but the diet does seem quite intriguing to me.  Why not just eat meats, veggies and fruits?  Why do we even need grains?  Seems such a clean diet.  Of course, I could not be strictly paleo because I love to bake.  And often the best tasting things (ahem, chocolate chip cookies, shortbread cookies) really don't taste great unless I use all-purpose flour.

Well, I say that now but it's because I have not tried to tinker with some recipes using healthier flours like sprouted spelt or sprouted wheat.  One day I will try but right now it seems so wasteful to "test" and then not have a batch turn out well and we end up having to toss the whole batch.  I don't like doing that.

Back to the Blueberry Brownies...I made these for a party where two guests were paleo.  Oh, these are so moist and delicious.  The original recipe calls for a blueberry sauce too but I didn't make it and the brownies weren't missing the sauce at all.
