Keren’s Brownies

  • Hearty 1/4 cup organic cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 med size organic eggs
  • 1/2-3/4 cup palm sugar (I used 1/2 cup depends on how sweet you like it)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of organic / fair trade vanilla extract

You can also add nuts (pecans or walnuts and or organic dark chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease an 8 inch square pan with a little coconut oil

With a mixer:

  • Beat eggs until thick … Slowly add sugar (it will clump up be patient with it… Harder to work
    with than regular sugar)
  • Slowly mix in cocoa powder
  • Add coconut oil and mix until it is smooth
  • In a separate bowl combine the rest of the dry ingredients
  • Mix all the dry ingredients into the wet mixture
  • Lastly add the vanilla. Mix another minute or so with mixer
  • If you want to add nuts or chocolate chips you can add now but fold them into the batter.

  • Bake for 28-32 minutes…
  • Let cool, cut into squares and enjoy.

    mmmm…these are delicious! Just took them out of the oven. We made ours Vegan by substituting Egg Replacer for the eggs and they still turned out great!

  • This is my first time I have visited this site. I found a lot of interesting stuff in your blog.

    These look great. I just made a similar recipe last night using all chickpea flour and the worked really well too. I find that if you mix the sugar, oil, cocoa, and salt together in a bowl set into a pan of barely simmering water, it mixes a lot easier and the sugar breaks down a bit, which helps with the brownie’s ultimate texture. Thanks for the inspiration!
