Come on what is a better way than to spend your Sunday afternoon in bed, eating chocolate brownies and just CHILLING?? I would like to know if you can come up with a better solution because I can’t 4SURE. I keep banging on about how I am trying to be a bit healthier with my food choices but we all have to have a bit of choc in our lives don’t we?? I have a few brownie recipes floating around on my blog but I have never shared this one on my blog so I thought that I should because it encourages eating chocolate and being slightly healthier! Basically, these are gluten-free and dairy free (whoop whoop!) so ANYONE can pretty much eat them. They are also really versatile to play around with so you can add any ingredients – even peanut butter or nutella! As you can see from my face they are good…. very good. Gooey on the inside, and so addictive!
These brownies taste like ordinary brownies. They use coconut oil and sugar to replace butter and sugar, which gives a slight coconutty taste – but coming from someone who doesn’t like coconut, it still tastes damn good!
I got this recipe from the Tanya Bakes book (because where else would I get amazing recipes from? Duh!)
Makes: 12-16 | Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins
You will need to have:
- A square baking tin
- 125ml (or grams because that’s what I used) coconut oil
- 300g of dark chocolate
- 400g of coconut sugar
- 170g ground almonds (optional – I didn’t use as I don’t like almonds)
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- ½ avocado, mashed
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- Any chocolate for drizzling
So now we have that covered you want to make sure you pre-heat your oven to 180°C / 350°F / GM 4 and line your baking tray with baking paper. With the #boring bit done yo can start baking!
In a relatively big saucepan you want to heat the coconut oil and dark chocolate on a low heat until it melts. Don’t put it on a high heat or you will get burnt chocolate which would not be good!
Take it off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients into the sauce pan and mix really well. (How simple is this recipe??)
Pour it into the baking tin and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes, mine needed a bit longer so just pop a knife in the middle to see if its done ~ if it comes out clean then it is perfect!
You want to leave the brownies to cool before drizzling chocolate on the top – I used white chocolate because I think it looks really cool and marble-like!
Then you can cut and enjoy!
