Chocolate Brownies..No Flour – All taste

This is one of my favourite finds…easy to make and so yummy to eat.   Gluten free too so you can pretend it’s actually a health food.   The brownies have a very gooey, fudge like texture to them.   This is due to the use of almond butter.  I sometimes use a mix of almond and cashew nut butter.  Both butters are easy to make if you have a food processor and a lot cheaper than buying it in a jar from your health store.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups of honey

2 eggs

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 cups almond butter (or cashew nut butter)

1 tblspn of vanilla

100 g of dark chocolate (min 70% cocoa solids), melted.

1/2 tspn of salt

1 tspn of baking soda

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/325 F.
  2. Blend the almond butter, eggs, honey, baking soda, salt and vanilla.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.
  4. Place the gooey goodness into a baking dish (I use a square pyrex) and spread the mixture flat but evenly distributed.
  5. Bake for 30-40 mins.   Do not let it get too dark.  A toothpick in the middle should come out clean.
  6. Enjoy….lovely warm and delicious cold.

    Can this be made using an artificial sweetener, if so how much?

      Hi, I would think so but would keep it to about a cup. You might want to add an extra egg too, to keep it moist as the honey makes this recipe lovely and gooey!
