Ultra-healthy, gooey brownie recipe

By on November 19, 2011

Chocolate, gooey, melt-in-your mouth pleasure,  as well as low-carb,  and gluten-free.  All the while, packed with healthy nutrients that help us live healthy lives,without feeling the guilt of the junk we normally think of as cheat-food.

If you’ve never thought of doing a healthy brownie recipe,do yourself a favor, and try it just once.   There’s other recipes out there that are just downright lousy, but after a lot of trial and error, I’m so happy to get you this one.

The key to doing it is making sure you don’t overbake them.  When done, a knife should not come out cleanly. If you go beyond the brownies barely pulling away from the pan, you’ve baked them too long.

Brownie Ingredients:

  • 1  1/2 sticks grassfed butter
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/8 cups stevia (sugar substitute)
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2-cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 4-oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs

Preparation Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Using butter, grease a 9″x13″ cake pan, and lightly dust with almond flour.

Melt the backing chocolate in small pan on a low heat.  While it’s melting, place butter, vanilla, salt, and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl (or food processer) and whip until fluffy.

Add to mixing bowl (or food processor), eggs, coconut oil, melted chocolate, cream, and water, and continue mixing.

Pour whipped ingredient mixture into a large mixing bowl, add stevia, and almond flour, and mix until smooth.

Pour out onto greased pan, and bake at 350 degress for 17-20 minutes.

*Tip-I like to peek at about the 17 minute mark to make sure they’re not getting overdone :)

Substituting processed, sugary flours leaves room to make things like ultra-healthy chocolate chip cookies, macaroons, and other delicious foods.

      Thanks for the question, Jeannine–I actually don’t have it right in front of me, but it wouldn’t be difficult to look up. Generally speaking, it’s fairly calorie dense, low in carbs, and high in protein. Let me know if you’d like more specifics.
