I just made these brownies, and they are delicious. They are chocolatey, fudgy and soft. It is up to you how much cocoa you put in, with the amount in the recipe they will have a rich chocolate taste. They can be very sticky, and so they need to be cooled down properly, and I even put them in the fridge. I absolutely love them and are a great dessert for any sweet tooth. Enjoy!
2 cups coconut sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
4 large egg whites
1 tsp pure organic vanilla extract
1/4 cup almond flour/meal
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
- Line a 20x20cm baking pan.
- In a large bowl, mix together the coconut sugar with cocoa powder and salt.
- Stir in the vanilla extract and egg whites. Whisk until the batter is moist.
- Add the almond flour.
- Pour into pan.
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops is lightly cracked.
- Let the brownies cool completely, then cut them into equal sized pieces.
- They taste good when cooled down, but even better out of the fridge.
I haven’t posted a recipe for a while, so here is a delicious yet healthy recipe for chocolate brownies. They are extremely chocolatey, so if you prefer them to have less chocolate, then reduce the cocoa amount. Other than that they are heaven on earth, as well as gluten and dairy free, with low glycemic sugar.
50-70g cocoa (depending on how chocolatey you want them)
80g coconut oil
150g coconut sugar
1tsp vanilla essence
100g almond or sorghum flour
40g arrowroot powder
50g chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tin with baking paper.
2. In a bowl, stir together the cocoa and coconut oil until well combined.
3. Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla essence with a hand mixer and add the cocoa and oil, and keep mixing until it is a smooth texture.
4. Mix together the floor, arrowroot powder and stir it into the cocoa batter. Then add chopped walnuts.
5. Pour batter into your baking tin and let it bake for 10-12 minutes. The brownies should be soft on the inside. Take them out and let cool, then enjoy :)

Just one week left of my 30 day challenge and I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad about it. I mean, I’m happy to be able to indulge in my favourite foods, snacks and desserts again. On the other hand, I’m a little scared I would go back to my daily piece of chocolate and my sugar addiction. I will definitely have to find a solution to that.
I need to find more recipes which are sugar free so that I won’t feel the need to munch on unnecessary carbs and sugar. As I am writing this post, I am enjoying my creamy home made sugar free banana ice cream. And guess what! My family likes it, too! That’s a first. I know it doesn’t look very appetising in my photo, but that’s because I had to add some water to the frozen bananas. It sounded like my food processor was breaking apart because they were very hard. Trust me though, it is delicious. I also made a banana smoothie with hazelnut milk, greek yoghurt and chia seeds – great energy booster!

These are the ingredients I used, (you will find the link to the original recipe below):
4 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup gluten free flour (i’m pretty sure you can use any gluten free flour)
1 tbsp raw organic honey
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of sea salt
