Red, White, and Blue Brownie Skewers

Another Fourth of July BBQ treat was our Red, White, and Blue dessert. I have used the brownie recipe below several times and really like it. I think I prefer it with honey instead of stevia but it is nice to have options. The boys LOVED these skewers and I felt pretty good about it too knowing that it wasn’t a totally sugared up type of dessert!

Red, White, and Blue Brownie Skewers

Brownie Recipe

Recipe adapted from http://www.slimpalate.com/brownies-paleo-grain-free-gluten-free/

1 c. almond flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
pinch salt
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp. liquid stevia plus 1/3 c. water or 1/2 c. honey
3 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 glass baking dish with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.

In a small bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add other liquid ingredients and mix well.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Combine. Mix in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Red, White, and Blue Brownie Skewers

1 pan brownies, cut into 1 in. cubes
1 pint strawberries
1/2 c. blueberries
1 banana, sliced
wooden skewers

Clean blueberries and strawberries (removing tops from strawberries). Assemble fruit and brownie bites on skewers. Do not put bananas on until just before serving as they will brown if you do it too soon.
