Melissa's Dark Chocolate Brownies

A friend asked me to make some baked goods for a fundraiser she is hosting at her CrossFit box.  Paleo goodies.  Except we don't eat a lot of "goodies" on the paleo diet.  I have spent a long and frustrating weekend trying lots of recipes from the web, and not very many of them were good enough to serve to other people!  This brownie recipe was one that we tried.  While the brownies were somewhat gooey and not very pretty (not enough to sell at a bake sale) - they were pretty delicious and can be eaten with a fork.  If you are a chocolate fiend, treat yourself once in a blue moon!

For one 8x8 pan of brownies you will need:
14 oz walnut butter (blend a bag of chopped baking walnuts in food processor)
1 egg
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 oz dark chopped chocolate

1.  Preheat oven to 325.  Blend walnut butter, egg, vanilla, honey and agave
2.  Add cocoa, salt and baking soda
3.  When blended smoothly, add dark chocolate
4.  Pour into greased 8x8 baking pan
5.  Bake at 325 for 35 minutes.
