Yayyyyyyy!! Another cassava recipe! A couple weeks ago, I tried cassava out for the first time with my Applesauce Spice Bread and it made me want to try out more recipes! I’ve worked with almond flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour on all sorts of different recipes so it’s been fun to mix it up with a different kind of flour! If you don’t have cassava flour, well I have no idea how much of the other flours you would need and if they would work 1:1. If I did know, I would tell you. But if cassava flour doesn’t work for you, check out 9 of my other brownies recipes here!

But something that’s realllll nice about these brownies is that they just get better with time. Try to stay in control of your life and after you eat just one of these, put them in an air tight container and into the fridge. Then when you go back for hopefully just one because hopefully you still have your life together, you will reap the benefits of your patience because I think they are even better when they’re cold. And when I tell you that hopefully you can keep your life together, it’s because I couldn’t. I went HAM on these things.

Sooooo I’ve been traveling solo since Sunday which means I’ve had A LOT of time by myself wandering around Walla Walla, Washington, searching for food then trying to walk off my food. So I walk pretty much everywhere with my headphones in to keep me entertained. And I have a new obsession…Wine & Crime Podcast. To the reader who introduced me to this podcast – I LOVE YOU. It’s out of control hilarious…as long as you like true crime. If you don’t like hearing about murder and super f*cked up things, it’s probably not for you. But if you like listening to 3 hilarious chicks get drunk off wine and crack jokes about all things depressing and frightening for over an hour…this is the podcast for you! I actually completely screwed up my makeup yesterday because I laughed so hard that I cried and smeared my eye liner everywhere. So cute. They’re awesome.

Just a quick How Ya Doing With Your Life note – I cannot explain to you how much dry shampoo I have in my hair right now. My goal was to not wash my hair the entire time I was in Walla Walla because I wanted to pack a carry-on and had absolutely no room for shampoo or conditioner. Then they ended up making me check my bag at the gate…the bastards. Well, I’m going strong with my being dirty AF regimen because my hair is pure grease and cake. And that’s not because I ate a gluten free cupcake yesterday and almost died from happiness. No, it’s because there is so much dry shampoo caked in my hair at this point and it’s clinging to the grease so now it’s simply become a slippery slope of sketch. Plus I’m spraying it over and over with root touch-up to cover up my blonde (yet maybe grey) hair. So.Much.Sketch. Also, I have a grey eyelash that is double the length of my other eyelashes and grows SO FAST. Is this what 30 looks like? Because I’m not into it!!!

That was a lot to take in huh? KBye.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. These look sooooo good!! I’ll definitely be making these! Also, I just started a podcast called My Favorite Murder if you’re looking for another podcast about true crime and hilariousness! It’s so good.

  2. Brownies look amazing! I can’t wait to try.

    On a side note, what brand of dry shampoo do you use? I’ve always wanted to try it but I have oily hair and I’m afraid it wont work for me. I saw your style photo while in Walla Walla (selfie in the bathroom) and your hair looked great.

  3. You went to my favorite cupcake place yesterday in Walla Walla and all I can think about now is one of their cupcakes!

  4. I had the long grey eyelash thing happen to me too! I tried just trimming it but then my SIL showed me the Guinness World Record for longest eyelash. I immediately plucked it out, because…umm…gross.
    Thanks for another delicious recipe and hilarious read!

  5. I can’t stop listening to Wine and Crime! I want a Minnesota accent so bad, those girls are so funny. Thanks for the recommendation.

  6. These look stupidly amazing. And perfect, because I’ve been wondering what to do with the bag of cassava flour I have lying around…oops! I can’t believe you have 9 brownie recipes. That is insane! Paleo/gf baking is just not my thing, props to you for having that patience (and being able to control your life/hold it together) to test it out multiple times, haha!

    1. you can try but i don’t think it will work. they are different. tapioca is the bleached and extracted starch while cassava flour is the entire root, minus the peel

  7. I made these today and the flavor is delicious. The only thing is that they turned out a little chalky. I wonder where I went wrong! The only thing I can think of is that I used melted Kerry gold instead of ghee. I’m thinking maybe I shouldn’t have melted it? Not sure. Let me know if you have any feedback please.

  8. These look amazing!! I’ve never tried paleo baking — I don’t have the patience, usually. But, I just bought some cassava flour and was looking for a recipe to try it out. This looks perfect! Quick question though: is the ghee to be melted or in “solid” form when mixed in Step 2?

  9. Is there anything you can sub for the espresso powder? I am really sensitive to coffee/espresso but this looks delicious otherwise and I’d love to try it.

  10. I have you to thank for introducing me to Wine and Crime. And being a born and raised Minnesota girl living in Utah, their accents make me feel right at home. Serious thanks for the introduction. I’ve been listening to it non stop for the last two months.
    Also, I just listened to your kick-ass episode with the Mind Pump Guys and I just think your great.

  11. Hey Juli! This recipe looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it! Also I was wondering if we can use another flour, as it is difficult to come by cassava flour over here in France…. Awesome blog and recipes! You rock my paleo life!

      1. When you used coconut oil, did you melt it? Or still whip it its soft/room temp but not melted state with the sugar? Don’t want to mess it up. 🙂

        Thanks Juli!

  12. Hi Juli! Thanks for this recipe! While I am riding out yet ANOTHER Nor’Easter in NYC , I’m thinking of making these… but I don’t have the chocolate chunks! Think it’ll be OK if I just omit?
    Thanks!!!!

  13. We made this tonight. I cooked it for only 28 minutes and the brownies had good flavor, but were dry and chalky. I double checked the recipe because I thought maybe I had forgotten some liquid such as coconut milk. But there isn’t any additional liquid listed in the ingredients.

    1. Since that information can vary depending on ingredients, your most accurate counts will be to put what you use into an app like myfitnesspal. If you’re okay with approximates, you can also search on that app. Some paleOMG recipes have been entered by users. Hope that helps! -Stacy, paleOMG assistant

  14. Juli– I just made these for my boyfriends birthday tomorrow! HOLY CRAP. I think all my love is instantly proven since I haven’t eaten every last one. These are INCREDIBLE! I used softened kerrygold butter, coconut sugar, and omitted the espresso powder and they were perfect at 30 minutes. New favorite brownie recipe for sure! (now to use another one of your recipes for his bday dinner!)
