DMC Free-From Brownies

These yummy brownies are the business. I have yet to get a bad comment on them.
 
brownies
 
Preparation time: 30 minutes (until you get good at it) | Baking time: 30 minutes
 
4oz dark (70% or more) or milk chocolate – the higher, the better for dark. If you take dairy then use a good quality milk cooking chocolate or Dairy Milk
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 large avocados (pureed). I use an electric baby puree machine as it makes all the difference (it does take more time though)
½ cup organic honey or healthy sweetner
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp coconut flour
3 x eggs
½ tsp baking soda (gluten and wheat free)
½ tsp baking powder (gluten and wheat free)
½ tsp salt optional (I use it though)
    1. Melt the coconut oil and chocolate in a glass bowl over boiling water, stirring in between so it doesn’t curdle
    1. Puree the avocados in a food processor–make sure there are NO LUMPS. We want brownies, not guacamole!
    1. Fold the chocolate into the avocados in a large mixing bowl
    1. With an electric mixer, beat the remaining ingredients into the batter until smooth
    1. Grease a baking tinn (or brownie tin if you have one; these are a must if you ask me) and spoon in the batter, smoothing out at the edges
  1. Bake at 175 degrees for 30 mins. Cool, serve and enjoy!

If you are really hardcore, then make your own almond milk to go with this gorgeous treat by following the video below.

So, there you have it. Our first guest post from Kirsty and an awesome excuse to bake, cook and enjoy some quality, free-from (if you want it to be), super, gorgeous treats.

To health, happiness and “Strength for Life”
