Today I really craved something chocolatey, but didn't have time to pull out all my cookbooks and decide what to make.
So, I tried a recipe on the back of my coconut flour bag that I have been eying for some time. (I did replace the sugar with a combination of xylitol and stevia.) Grain free and sugar free and... even guilt free!!
(Despite the picture, they were not crumbly at all-I just used a butter knife and should have cut them neater :/ )
The recipe calls for:
-1/3 cup butter
-1/2 cup cocoa powder
-6 eggs or egg substitute
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1/2 cup coconut flour
-1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan over low heat, blend butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and cool.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Then add the chocolate mixture and
blend in the coconut flour. (I used a hand beater for this and it worked great.) Smooth into a greased 8x8 baking pan for 30-35 minutes.
I substituted the cup of sugar with a heaping 1/4 cup of xylitol and a few squirts of stevia glycerite...(about 4.)
Baked for 30 minutes, did not add chocolate chips and greased my glass dish with coconut oil spray. They taste a lot like chocolate cake!
I was pleased with how easy this recipe was and how they totally satisfied my need for a dessert today. I would definitely make them again, just too easy not to! :)
