I love finding new, healthier recipe ideas to enjoy dessert without the guilt! I tried a new Brownie recipe yesterday & must say, it was FANTASTIC! The recipe is gluten-free, refined sugar & oil free, & is super easy to make. They tasted so rich & gooey – I had to share with friends so I wouldn’t eat all of them myself! Check out the recipe from One Lovely Life below and let me know what you think!
- 2 Eggs (I used organic, free-range, cage-free)
- 5 Tbsp Coconut Oil (Melted)
- 2/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2/3 cup Almond Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
- 2/3 cup Coconut Sugar
- 1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
- Additional Chocolate Chips (Around 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup)
Pre-heat oven to 350. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
In a small saucepan, gently melt 2/3 cup chocolate chips with oil over low heat until smooth and glossy. Remove from heat and set aside to slightly cool.
In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs until slightly lighter in color and until they pass the ribbon test (when you lift the whisk the mixture should stream down evenly in “ribbons”). Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients — almond flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
Working slowly, whisk the egg/sugar mixture into the saucepan of melted chocolate/oil until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and mix well. Fold in the dry ingredients until just mixed. Fold in the additional chocolate chips.
Pour batter evenly into the prepared baking pan and bake for 20-22 minutes. Allow brownies to cool before slicing.
