Brownies

IMG_2428.JPG

I’ve been really enjoying exploring the world of gf, df, sf baking. I cannot say every recipe has been a keeper but what I’m posting here…certainly IS! I have been buying boxed gf brownies because I was in need of a quick fix. I was getting WAY too much sugar than I was wanting in my diet. I was also getting a few other unwanted additives. I am head over heels in love with this recipe. It’s amazing texture and flavor are perfect and I am a chocolate lover. Although I do consider myself a huge chocolate fan, I get sick of fudge-y sweets simply because it is just too rich. These little beauties are light but satisfying, chocolately but not too fudge-y, sweet but not too rich. Okay enough of that…I just cannot brag about them enough!
I credited the lovely source for these. When inspired from other bloggers, recipes, or ingredients, I completely make it my own. With this recipe, I didn’t alter much because they were just so perfect! You can certainly omit the brown sugar and do just honey but I liked the two sources of sweetness. You can also do agave or regular sugar (although you know I’m not a white, granulated sugar fan) but you will get a different consistency. As you continue hibernating during these cold months, at least do with the some delicious brownies baking in the oven because who doesn’t love the smell of baking brownies?

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 large eggs
1/2 minus 2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup minus 1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (I use enjoy life – gluten, dairy, and soy free)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a 8×8 glass baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl add coconut oil, coco powder and eggs. Use an electric mixer to combine ingredients until well blended. Add the honey, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
3. Add the coconut flour and salt, mixing only until the batter is smooth.
4. Fold in the chopped walnuts and mini chocolate chips. Spread into the prepared baking pan.
5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
