Apricot Brownies, Flourless

These are by far the best Paleo brownies that I have made or had.  A lot of my baked goods are delicious but these are just straight up amazing and the possibilities are endless for adding fruits or nuts or some Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips.  I hope you enjoy this absolutely amazing treat and make sure you share :). If you do not have Coconut Cream Concentrate, if you have patience and a really good blender or food processor, you can make it yourself.  Thanks to my awesome fan Krystal Caddow-Levine for posting her success with this.  She found the instructions here.

  1. Just made these with prunes and walnuts (love that combo) They are so amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Next time will try with dries apricots, since fresh ones are not in season right now.

  2. OK… I don’t know what happened when I made these because they turned out dry (even though I only cooked them for about 20 minutes & yes on 325). I have been on The Whole30 and decided to make something special for day 31 but didn’t want to eat gluten so these sounded (and looked perfect). I used the coconut butter and everything else according to the recipe with the exceptions of using raw agave instead of honey and I soaked dates and chopped them instead of apricots (which I didn’t think would make a difference in the moisture). Maybe it was the agave? Would that make such a big difference? I was so looking forward to the deliciousness of this brownie and I was disappointed. I made a mixture of coconut butter and agave and put it on top which helped but still it was not great. :(

      1. George – I want to make these tonight and happen to have Nutiva coconut manna/butter on hand. It’s hard in the jar, but I was going to let it sit in warm water to loosen up. Do you recommend using that brand or would I be better off waiting to get some Tropical Traditions?

  3. These “brownies” are amazing!! My husband and I made them together today!
    We used the fresh apricots and wow, is that tasty :)
    We think we did something wrong, even though we followed this to the tee…
    Our brownies came out very light in color, even though I prompted my husband to add more organic cocoa.. When the baking was complete and it was time for the taste test, the dessert was more like an VERY AMAZING bread pudding or Custard .. Hmmm, not certain what happened there, but nevertheless, it was soooooo yummy and the house smells great!! LOL
    PS.. we used Coconut Cream “Heavy” from Clarks Nutrition Center n Rancho Mirage, CA. Was this the wrong coconut??

  4. These brownies are insanely good! I’m no stranger to paleo brownies, I’ve tried lots of recipes and you’re right – these are the best, by far! Fudgy, sweet and chocolatey. I made my own coconut cream concentrate (although I know it as coconut butter) and I resorted to using tinned apricots (they’re not in season in Australia right now). Oh and I substituted half of the honey for erythritol to make it slight more carb-friendly. I’ll be making these again, and again, and again! Thanks!

  5. I made these last weekend and they totally flopped. I’m not sure what went wrong, but I think it was the coconut cream. I used the coconut cream from Trader Joe’s. Should I have used coconut manna instead?

  6. Hi George,
    These sound amazing. My Paleo husband is always asking me to make new treats. I have Coconut Butter. Is that the same as Coconut Cream Concentrate? Thanks!!!

  7. how do you make/ What ratio would you use to make the CCC from the little green package from Let’s Do Organic?

  8. I really wanna try making these, but being from the UK I don’t understand cup measures or the conversions at all! Does anyone know the recipe in grams?

  9. SO good!!! I’ve made them with apricots previously, and today I’m going to whip up a batch with dried cherries. Sweets are my weakness, so I’m very glad to have paleo-friendly dessert options. Thanks for sharing this one!

  10. This recipe is money…instead of apricots i used the maple bacon from the brownie bacon bites recipe and added a couple scoops of protein powder to fit my macro needs. Love how a lot of your recipes are a great base to get inventive with other stuff in the kitchen.

  11. Krystal’s recipe is for coconut butter – if I just used it (instead of coconut cream concentrate) how much would I need? Thank you

  12. Do you think this would work with coconut milk instead of condensed coconut cream? I live in Costa Rica and don’t have access to the ccc.

  13. Wow, these are gorgeous and just my kind of brownie too. Best of all, you linked to my little blog for the coconut cream component. I just LOVE responsible bloggers who credit others while sharing such healthy recipes. Yummm & thanks ;-)

  14. Okay just took them out 20 minutes ago. Are you kidding me?!!! These are absolutely the best brownies I have ever had, even better than "regular" ones!!!! I see why all the ladies want to marry you, lol! You totally just kept me perfectly paleo for the whole month if you know what I mean, lol!

  15. Making these as we speak but using pumpkin instead of apricots since I had some leftover from making your pumpkin pancakes:) Will see how they turn out!

  17. Wow, delicious! I made them with peaches – I think I will skip the fruit and go a little easier on the honey for a truly scrumptious dessert. They are soooooo good after being in the fridge overnight. Hands-down the best and fudgiest brownies EVER. Even grain-eaters would love this.

  18. In this recipe nothing, you can go make my Blueberry banana brownies and replace the blueberries with apricots if you want. That one uses almond butter

  19. Hey George – I tried them with dates and omg its like sticky date and chocolate made a baby! LOL it's delicious!
