One night a couple of weeks ago, I suddenly felt like eating brownies. You know, the sweet decadent, moist and flavourful kind of brownies. So, I whipped out my bowls and came up with this recipe. Sometimes I forget to write down recipes, but I made sure to write this one down because it was soooooo delicious! Quite possibly some of the best brownies I’ve ever had. Let’s just say it barely lasted 24 hours and they were all gone.
They are simple to make too, which is a good thing because my husband made me promise to make these at least once a month from now on! haha
A definite must-try!
Super Healthy Almond Brownies | Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, No Refined Sugar, Gluten-Free
Chocolate can be healthy too, especially with this super healthy almond brownies recipe, naturally grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free!
- 1/2 cup whole raw organic almonds ground in the coffee grinder (will give you 3/4 cup ground)
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
- 200 g organic semi-sweet cooking chocolate
- 1/3 cup coconut oil melted at low temperature
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 organic free-range eggs
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- In a small pot over low to medium-low heat, melt the chocolate.
- In a medium size bowl, whisk the eggs until nice and airy. Add the vanilla and maple syrup, mix well.
- Once the chocolate is melted in the small pot, remove from heat, add the coconut oil and mix until fully combined. Wait a few minutes to cool down.
- Slowly whisk the melted chocolate mixture into the egg and maple syrup mixture.
- With a rubber spatula, mix in the ground almonds (don't worry if there are a few chunks of almonds left, it'll be yummy), the buckwheat flour and a pinch of sea salt.
- Mix until well combined.
- I lined a 9" x 9" glass oven-safe container with parchment paper to make it easier later.
- Pour the brownie mixture into the parchment-paper lined container, and bake at 350 F for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. You don't want to overcook it.
- Let cool for at least 20-30 minutes, and enjoy!
