Chocolate & Sea Salt Brownies
Every time you make these, people will devour them!
We are continuously told that they taste nicer than regular brownies.
They are DAIRY-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, and they are also grain-free.
Ground almonds are a good source of minerals like zinc, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin E – which support the brain, skin, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. They also aid in regulating blood sugar levels.
Cocoa protects the heart, supports immunity, strengthens the intestinal lining against invading microorganisms, and eases gastrointestinal upsets! Coconut sugar is anti-fungal and will fight gut bacteria, too.
You can really enjoy these brownies without guilt and discomfort – they are good for your health!
- 2 eggs (at room temperature)
- 2/3 cup or 80g of ground almonds
- 1/4 cup or 80g of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup or 130g of coconut oil
- 1 1/3 or 200g of coconut sugar
- sea salt to decorate
Preheat your oven at 350 F / 175 C (fan oven).
Beat the eggs and add the coconut sugar, followed by the ground almonds and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
Add the melted (but cooled down) coconut oil and the cocoa powder, mix gently as the cocoa powder is fine.
Pour in a greased muffin tray (I use coconut oil) lined with baking paper. Bake at 350 F / 175 C (fan oven) for 18 minutes.
Let it cool down and decorate with sea salt flakes.
Enjoy!! I love having these with a cup of coffee. Total treat but not too naughty.
*if you are allergic to nuts or prefer not to use almond flour (ground almonds) for any other reason, you can replace it with quinoa flour. 80g or 2/3 cup of almond flour can be replaced with 50 g or 2/3 cups of quinoa flour.
