I've trolled around the web a bit to find a good recipe as well as used a recommended one from a fellow Paleo co-worker who turned me onto this new way eating (forever in your gratitude Ginny!). Alas, my first attempt was not a good one. I blame it on the second type of coconut oil I was using; it was a highly scented and flavored of coconut. I did not want my brownies to taste like Almond Joy (yet).
Since I think I've got a pretty good starting grasp on my use of Almond flour and baking in general....I made my own. It's thin, yet fudgy. I am happy with it....perhaps you will enjoy it too. Let me know.

1/2 cup honey
3 (1 oz) squares unsweetened chocolate (or 1/2 cup cocoa powder and increase oil to 5 T)
2 T coconut oil, organic butter or favorite oil of choice
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup almond flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt oil and chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute intervals, until melted. Thoroughly stir in honey. Blend in eggs one at a time. Mix well. Add vanilla. Stir in flour.
Spread in a 8X8 baking pan (a disposable aluminum one works awesome without greasing). Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Cool and cut into 16 squares.
