my thoughts on brownies:
*brownies come out of oven*
me: better put in fridge so the cool faster
for 5 minutes: i think about brownies
*brownies done chilling*
me: cut brownies and sample one (large) brownie to make sure they taste good
my brother: “can i try a brownie?”
me: “sure” (its a big brownie so we split it)
*put brownies in container and store for later*
me: eats ANOTHER brownie… or two…
where did they all go??
this recipe is super fun to play around with! i have made it into a bunt cake.
I’ve topped it with berries, vanilla creme, chocolate sauce, cacao nibs, and toasted coconut.
I’ve added creme to the batter, coconut sugar, cacao nibs, and even nuts.
flour-less dark chocolate brownies (paleo options, grain free, gluten free, gaps)
(with wonderful “food-tography” by my dear friend Devon Haskel)
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 4 eggs
- 3 tbs ghee, melted butter, or more coconut oil
- 1/4-1/3 cup honey (adjust to taste)
- 1-2 tbs vanilla
- *1/4 cup milk of choice (if the batter is to thick)*
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- add in or top with pecans or walnuts
- melt chocolate to spread on top
- spread honey on top
*pre-heat oven to 350*
in a bowl, mix together dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. In a larger bowl, mix all wet ingredients: eggs, butter/oil, honey, *milk, and vanilla. Pour the contents of the first bowl into the wet ingredients and mix well. Line the bottom of a brownie pan with parchment paper (or grease generously). Pout brownie batter in to pan and cook for 15-20 minutes. Mine is usually done at about 17 minutes but i check them at 15 to make sure they don’t get to dry. If you pour the batter in a cake pan or make the brownies thick, they take about 23 minutes to bake. Brownies are much better a little underdone than over baked, so keep a close eye on these little guys. When the brownies are done, chill in fridge for a little bit before cutting and serving.
