I came up with this recipe the other day after I was able to reintroduce chocolate back into my diet once my skin condition calmed down after my latest outbreak. After each round of GAPS I do I tend to crave 2 things: cupcakes and brownies (I have no idea why – I don’t usually crave these things normally, I think I just really start to crave something sweet). So to the kitchen I went, to develop a brownie recipe more simple than my last.
They turned out very delicious, and very chocolatey. I used a very dark chocolate, so they are made for those with an extreme love affair with chocolate, no moderate lovers here! They actually turned out suprisingly more fluffy than I anticipated. Since they don’t have flour, I thought they were going to be very dense, but I was pleasantly suprised that they were not.
What You Will Need:
4 oz dark chocolate
1/2 cup of butter
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of maple syrup or sweetener of choice
1/2 tsp. baking powder
A dash of salt
- In a small double broiler or pot on low, melt chocolate and butter until thoroughly melted.
- In a separate small-medium sized bowl, beat eggs with an electric beater until mixed well and lightly frothed.
- Add chocolate and butter to egg bowl.
- Add cocoa, baking powder, salt and maple syrup to the mixture.
- Beat with the electric beater or by hand for about a minute to ensure the batter is well mixed.
- Place mixture in a small baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Cool for about 15 minutes before you cut into brownies and Enjoy!
