This recipe! Mmm. Chocolate, cherries and brownies are three of my very favorite things. So, a combination of each is a trifecta I can’t pass up. 


I have been trying to cut back on my gluten intake due to my lovely gut issues, but I have a huge sweet tooth. I came across a chocolate brownie recipe and thought it would be awesome to toss in the cherries, and I’m so glad I did. These brownies are good. Real good.




The original recipe called for honey. I changed my version up a bit by making it local raw honey. You can use regular honey, if you wish, but have you ever tried local raw honey? It’s got many health benefits (I mention a few of them here). If you aren’t sure where to find it in your area, there’s a national local raw honey locator you can use. 



Tip: Coconut flour tends to be very absorbent; adding 2 tablespoons of the Maraschino cherry juice to the batter will keep it moist.
