Remember when I told you how much I love birthdays? Yeah, well, I got to take care of a friend's kids while she worked today, and one of them is having a birthday today. So I HAD to make something cake-ish. I decided to try a new recipe but since I altered it so much I'm going to pass it off as my own.
All ingredients organic, of course.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 oz dark chocolate (I used Green & Black's baking chocolate)
- 1 tbsp brown rice syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract (don't bother with the fake stuff, if you don't have the real deal, leave it out or use a little rum)
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp coconut cream
- 1/2 cup or less chocolate chips
Really really really good. Most gf brownies are made with rice flour and have a little grit because of it. These are velvety smooth (though they are a little coconut-ey, which I don't mind at all; if you do, you could sub butter for the oil and cream for the coconut cream). These are gooey and fudgey and just...well, let's just say I wouldn't kick them out of bed for eating crackers.
I know I tend to use these bowls for taking pics of food--they're so pretty I can't help myself. My mother in law gave them to me; they're from the Morikami gardens gift shop.
