ADHD Grain & Sugar Free Focus Fudge Brownie Recipe

If you have a child struggling with ADHD, Mood issues, or anxiety then this recipe is for you. In our approach to help our child, we look to adding as much holistic options as possible BEFORE we look to medications. Our daughter has been on stimulants before when she was attending private school. However, her body does not respond well to them and the side effects far out weigh the potential improvement in her focus. With that being said, I set out to create a tasty treat that would help her better better focus, stay calm, and improve her mood. 

To do that, it was important that I clearly understand how her brain and body work. I needed to understand what each neurotransmitter is responsible for and how they each affected those areas in the brain. Then I researched and charted which foods bolsters those neurotransmitters; and alas a recipe was born.  

I ended up with Homemade ADHD grain & sugar free focus fudge brownies.

These are packed with everything you need to have healthy neurotransmitters to promote better focus, increased moods, lower anxiety, calming attitude and better stress response. Plus, this recipe use only bananas and Monk fruit so blood sugar levels in the body stay more level. You may have to experiment with how big a slice of the brownie you provide and how often as to the effect in which you see results. We have do a 2" x 2" square twice a day. Once in the morning and once at lunch.

Without further adieu the recipe is as follows:  

2 cups almond flour
2 tblsp Coconut Oil, melted (Ghee would work as well)
3/4 tblsp Baking Soda
1/4 cup pure Cocoa Powder
4 tblsp Monk Fruit (this won't raise blood sugar) -
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup Cashew Butter
6 scoops Collagen Powder (we use)
2 eggs
1 tblsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup of Sugar Free Chocolate Chips -

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add all wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Batter should be semi-thick and easily spreadable in the pan. If not, you can add another banana and/or more coconut oil. I used a 9 x 11 silicon pan.

Bake approximately 35 minutes or until stick comes out clean. Cool completely cool and then chill in fridge. (This helps the brownie say together well).

NOTES: if the brownies still need more baking after the allotted time and the edges are done, a trick I use is to microwave at 50% until I get the consistency I want. This also ensures you won't burn the top/or edges while it finishes baking.

Also, if you don't use Silicone pans - I encourage you to make the switch. They are so much easier to remove items and super easy to soaking and/or scrubbing. Plus, you can use them in the oven, microwave, and freezer. I use nothing but silicone these days. (This is the pan size I used only mine is orange -
