Grain Free Gooey Chocolate Brownies

 

This recipe is from Ambitious Kitchen and is unbelievable.  These brownies are so gooey, chocolatey and yum yum!!  If you have not visited Monique’s website…do it now.  She has the best recipes and especially for those whose health requires them to eat gluten or grain free.
I have made a few tweaks to the recipe to make it even a bit more nutrient dense.  I absolutely love these and amazingly enough they only have 11 grams of sugar per brownie.
INGREDIENTS

1 cup tahini (sesame butter)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

1/3 cup unsweetened raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips

For the chocolate drizzle

2 tablespoons Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips

1 teaspoon coconut oil

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan with coconut cooking spray. (I prefer to use a round cake pan since I like my brownies in a pie slice)
  2. In a large bowl, combine the tahini, coconut sugar, maple syrup, vanilla extract and eggs until smooth and well combined. Gently fold in raw cacao powder, coconut flour, salt and baking soda until batter is smooth. Fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips into the batter. This batter should be pretty thick.
  3. Spread batter evenly in prepared baking pan. Bake for 22-30 minutes or until knife inserted into the middle comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached. You don’t want to overbake these!!
  4. After brownies have cooled a few minutes, prepare the chocolate drizzle: Place a small saucepan over low heat, add chocolate chips and coconut oil and stir frequently until melted and smooth. Generously drizzle over the brownies. Makes 16 brownies.
