This recipe is proof that dessert can be both wholesome and delicious. Ground walnuts are used instead of flour and raw honey instead of sugar. This is one moist delicacy that you won’t get enough of!
1¾ cups Walnuts, ground in food processor
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (OR for even more moist brownies, melt 2 (5.3 oz) bars Baking Chocolate, 72% cocoa content
1½ teaspoons baking powder
1½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt, freshly ground
1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk (room temp) *Omit if you want fudge-like brownies, then reduce baking time by 10 minutes*
1 cup raw honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
Walnuts for garnish, optional
Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly spray brownie pan with coconut oil.
In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, then add coconut milk, and honey (and melted chocolate if using). Add coconut oil and mix until well combined.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Press walnut pieces into the top of batter, if desired.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool well before cutting.
