Grain-Free Fudge Brownies
~These brownies are grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and of course, sugar-free!
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons ground flax or chia (optional. I added it for extra nutrition)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup water or milk-substitute (I used unsweetened chocolate almond milk)
optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts or chopped unsweetened chocolate.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. First, blend the dates into a paste. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients. Then add wet. Stir until well combined. Add the date paste and mix very thoroughly to ensure there aren’t any date chunks. The dates are the natural sweetness in the recipe. Feel free to add more dates if needed to suite your sweet tooth
Lightly grease a 8×8 baking dish (I used coconut oil). Pour batter into dish. The batter should be thick. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.Great with Strawberries!!! AMAZING with Almond Milk Ice cream!
Please note - these came out with strong cocoa powder taste. Next time here is what I plan to change: Mix wet ingredients with a hand mixture. Really give the eggs a great beating! Maybe add a couple more dates.
