recipe- Triple Choc Chewy Brownies
Triple Choc Chewy Brownies
1/3 cup Organic Cacao or Cocoa powder
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons boiling water
2 ounces unsweetened organic chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (about 1 minute in the microwave does the trick – just place the butter in a mug or bowl cut into chunks)
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 organic eggs
2 organic egg yolks
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups organic rapadura sugar
1 3/4 cups organic unbleached white flour
3/4 teaspoon himalayan salt
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (these are optional)
Pre-heat your oven to 175c degrees and adjust the baking rack to the bottom.
Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with foil to create a sling for the brownie batter. This will make it easier to remove the brownies from the pan. Just place a piece of foil in one direction, then place a piece of foil going the opposite direction. Allow the foil to hang over the sides. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the boiling water and the cocoa powder. Use a whisk to stir until the cocoa powder is dissolved. Add in the unsweetened chocolate, and whisk until all of the chocolate is melted.
Next, stir in oil, and melted butter.
Add eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla.
Stir in sugar, then add flour, and salt. Stir until all ingredients are combined.
Fold in mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Use a spatula to scrape the batter into the pan lined with foil.
Bake on the bottom rack for 30 to 35 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check for doneness, you want some moist crumbles to be on the toothpick which means they are cooked just right. If the toothpick comes out clean, you’ve overcooked the brownies.
Remove the brownies from the oven and transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for about 90 minutes. Then, use the foil overhang to lift the brownies out of the pan. Allow the brownies to continue to cool for an additional 60 minutes. You can speed the process along by placing the brownies in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut the brownies into squares and serve.
