Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are baked on a regular occurrence in my house. The kids adore them and they happen to be nut free, making them safe for the school lunch boxes. They make a great healthier treat option.

Chocolate Brownie (makes 24)
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1.5 cups quality dark chocolate
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp tapioca flour
  • 6 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  2. Grease and line a slice baking tray.
  3. Melt the butter, chocolate, and coconut sugar in TM bowl 2-3 mins/100 degrees, speed 2.
  4. Scrap down the sides of the bowl and add the vanilla extract and eggs. Mix for 30 seconds/speed 2.
  5. Add all dry ingredients to the TM bowl and mix for 1 minute/speed 3 or until combined.
  6. Scrap batter into lined slice tray.
  7. Bake for 25-30 mins.

The recipe is written for the Thermomix, but you can easily convert it to conventional methods; melting the wet ingredients on a stove top and then adding to dry ingredients. This recipe also freezes well.

I have adapted this recipe from an original in the cookbook Primal Cravings. This was one of the first ‘treat’ recipes I made after transitioning to a whole food diet many years ago. I couldn’t even tell you how often this has been baked since.
