Chocolate and Coffee Brownies (Coconut Flour & Chia Seed)

Sharing is caring!


I’ve been playing around with ground chia seed as a flour and added some coconut flour to bake a moist and delicious brownie.  I was so pleased with my first batch that somehow we ate the whole lot before I could get round to taking a photograph of them.  So I baked another batch the next day.  It’s with a small degree of shame that I confess we also ate these before taking a photograph.   Finally, another batch was made and I managed to whip out my camera before eating them!

I used my coffee grinder to grind the chia seeds to a fine powder.  The Chief Taster said he could taste a slight nuttiness of the chia but I think he was looking for the taste once I told him what was in the brownies (he’s not a fan of chia).  I find whisking the ingredients help to make the brownie light but you could just as easily used a spoon and a strong arm!  They are delicious warm and also seem to improve the next day (I only found this out on my third batch…much to my shame!)

      Ovens can vary. Mine often seem to take on a mind of its own for cooking time.

    What could we replace the chia seeds with?

      You could leave them out. Or add chopped nuts?

      They were so moist and yummy, I’m scared to make another batch for fear of eating the whole lot in a day (again!)
