Chocolate Orange Brownie (Coconut Flour)

A moist chocolate orange brownie that is made with coconut flour and a boiled orange.  Low carb and gluten free too.

I have a cake recipe which requires a whole orange to be boiled then added to the cake mixture, so I thought that I would try this method for a chocolate and orange brownie recipe.

I used coconut flour as the coconut flour would soak up the moisture without being too dry.  I was delighted with the results, as the brownie was indeed moist and not too strong in orange flavour.  The Chief Taster loved these and was happily munching these all weekend.   The smell of the orange boiling is delightful too! A natural air freshener for your kitchen.

I have also made this adding a few chunks of chocolate into the mixture before popping it into the oven.  I’ve not shown this below as I was trying to keep the carbs as low as I could but please feel free to add extra chocolate to yours!  It works wonderfully!

      No it’s not. The boiling of the orange softens it and takes away any sharp taste of the peel. Hope you enjoy it!
