Ingredients
For crust:
  • ½ cup almond meal or whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce, mashed banana, or melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or erythritol
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • about 6 tablespoons almond milk
For brownies:
  • 1½ cup granulated xylitol or erythritol
  • ½ cup almond meal or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons of egg replacer mixed with 1½ cups of water OR 8 egg whites
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups mini marshmallows (I like to use vegan marshmallows. Paleo marshmallows do exist so you can use those to keep this recipe paleo.)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with foil and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all in the ingredients for the crust except the almond milk and stir until completely combined. Add in the almond milk one tablespoon at a time until you have the consistency of a thin cake batter. Pour into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly in a thin layer over the bottom. Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 20 minutes, or until firm and ever so slightly golden. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile in a large bowl, combine the erythritol or sugar, almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add in egg replacer mixture or egg whites, applesauce, and vanilla extract and stir until completely combined, which may take a few minutes. Make sure there are no dry pockets remaining. Pour the batter over the baked crust and smooth out the top. Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Take the brownies out of the oven and preheat the broiler. Evenly layer the marshmallows on top of the brownies. (It doesn't have to look perfect. They'll be delicious either way!) Bake under the broiler for about 60 seconds, until the marshmallows on top are all golden and beautiful. Let cool before cutting into bars. I mean it. You gotta let them cool. Since I have exactly zero patience around these babies, I usually stick the whole pan in the fridge to cool them faster. Devour.
