We’ve said it before and we will say it again, we love Perth based organic food company Orgamix. There is something very satisfying about eating a sweet treat that you’ve made from scratch, and it is even better when you’ve used some high quality whole food ingredients.
Keep reading for our favorite chocolate brownie recipe.
150 grams high quality dark chocolate
1/2 cup Orgamix organic coconut oil
1 cup Orgamix brown sugar
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup gluten free flour (we used sorghum flour)
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 free-range eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon Orgamix coconut syrup
1/2 cup chopped almonds or hazelnuts we used Orgamix activated raw almonds
Handful of cocoa nibs we used Orgamix chocolate coated nibs (can you get enough chocolate ever?)
Preheat the oven to 175C. Line baking tray with baking paper, we used a 20cm by 15cm tray.
I’m a lucky girl and have a stand mixer however if you’re doing it the old school way a wooden spoon and some elbow grease will get the job done.
Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat, gently stirring.
Mix together the sugar, almond meal, sorghum flour, fine sea salt and baking soda. Add in the beaten eggs, vanilla extract and melted dark chocolate mixture. Beat on low-medium for two minutes, until the batter begins to come together slowly increase the speed to max for another two minutes until it thickens and becomes smooth and glossy.
If you’re using a mixer, turn off the machine to add in the nuts & cacoa nibs folding them through the mixture.
Evenly spread the batter into the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until the brownies are set, you can test by inserting a knife or skewer and if it comes out clean you’re done!
Let the brownies cool and remove from the tray as a whole, try lifting them out using the baking paper.
I’m a sucker for warm and gooey brownies but fair warning they will fall apart. If you want to show off to your friends with the perfect brownie perhaps let them cool before cutting them into squares.
Pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy!
