What’s that smell, your guests proclaim as they walk through the front door? An invisible fog of chocolate and nostalgia lingers in the air, creating the perfect welcoming atmosphere for your guests to cozy up to. When you pull these fresh out of the oven and serve, as you all settle around the dining room table with coffees and kid-size glasses of milk, you’ll officially win their hearts!
Best of all, these yummy, chewy treats are made with HONEY! Locally sourced, adding honey will actually help you overcome those pesky pollen allergies that creep up on you with the first glimpse of spring. Not to mention, this natural sweetener reduces the amount of pure sugar you have to use, bonds the brownies naturally without adding xanthum gum and best of all, provides many health benefits.
So break out the baking pan and get ready to discover my latest reason to add a little chocolate with your morning coffee!
Gluten Free Chewy Brownies
2 Free Range Eggs
1/3 Local Sourced Honey
2 Cups Almond Flour (substitute with Gluten Free Flour for nut allergies)
1 Cup Sugar
2 1/2 Cups Dark Chocolate Chips
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Organic Coconut Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crack eggs into large mixing bowl and beat. Add flour, honey, sugar, 1/2 Cup chocolate chips & vanilla to bowl. Mix until all is blended except the chocolate chip morsels.
In a small separate bowl, melt butter. Add 2 cups of chocolate chips and coconut oil to melted butter and stir. If the heat doesn’t initially melt the chocolate chips, place in microwave for about 20 seconds after you have completely coated the chocolate chips from mixing. Remove and mix again until smooth. Add to large bowl and mix all together until batter is thick and the color of dark chocolate.
On nonstick 9×13 cake pan, use spatula to spread batter evenly. Bake for 20 minutes.
Ding! Time is up. Test brownies are thoroughly cooked by poking center with a toothpick. Tooth pick should remove clean. Let brownies sit for 15 minutes to cool before cutting.
