These brownies can be made a couple of ways. They were designed for my 3-Part Video Series titled: How To Stop Sugar Cravings & Why You Must. This series is just a short version of some strategies on how to quit sugar and rid yourself of sugar cravings - forever!
Give these brownies a try. I found them to be very hearty and great for a travel snack or afternoon pick up! Since they be made with eggs or flax meal they are good for vegans or Paleo's.
Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 eggs - or 6 tbsp flax meal (soaked in 1/2 cup water)
2 tbsp unsweetened cacao powder
1 cup coconut oil (melted) Barlean's Coconut Culinary Oil is also good.
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup melted unsweetened chocolate (or 1/2 cup more of cacao powder). If you use the chocolate the brownies will come out more moist. You can also use 85% dark chocolate.
1 tbsp Singing Dog Vanilla
2 tbsp Xylotol or powdered Stevia. Careful here to get the sweetness you like. Remember that when you bake them they will come out slightly less sweet than what they taste like before baking. You can also add a little rice syrup or coconut syrup for more sweetness, flavor and moisture.
1/2 cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cover glass pan with baking paper or coconut oil and a little coconut flour.
Whsk together the eggs or flax, melted coconut oil (not hot), vanilla, sweetening powder, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
Stir in melted chocolate
Combine in the almond meal, coconut flour and nuts (sugar free cocoa nibs or chocolate chips)
Bake for about 20 minutes until the toothpick comes out clean. Don't overcook or they will dry out. Cool and enjoy.
These are hearty and great for an afternoon snack!
