Paleo Brownies (that actually taste good!!)

I have experimented with so many different paleo brownie recipes and I just haven't found "the one."  They are either too chewy, too dry, or too crumbly.  I decided to try making up my own recipe. These paleo brownies taste just like the traditional brownies that you would make from a box or from scratch.  No really- I promise!  Sometimes I feel like the pictures of some of the paleo recipes can be deceiving!  They looked really good in the picture... but when I made the recipe, they didn't quite make the cut.  I am really excited with how these turned out!

2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
