- Total Time35 min
- 100 g Coconut Oil Melted
- 200 g Ground Almonds/Almond Flour
- 20 g Flaxseed (ground)

Add all to a bowl and mix, you don’t even need to whisk the eggs – just give it all a really good mix. Depending how warm your melted coconut oil is you may want to add the eggs last to the mixture so they don’t scramble.

Pour mixture into square brownie pan and flatten down
Cook for 25 mins at 180 normal oven, 160 fan
