Cheeky Kitty Test Kitchen's Dark Chocolate Coconut Brownies aka Antioxidant Rich, Super Food Protein Bars. Shut up.
I needed something sweet, but didn't want it to be TOO terrible for me. These are pretty amazing. Though they are certainly high in sugar they have a lot of good things going for them. I will make them Vegan next time and add Goji Berries and Macadamia Nuts or maybe Mexican Chocolate Brownies instead. Oh, yeah... That's happening.
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, plus tbsp for baking dish
4 oz Unsweetened Chocolate, roughly chopped
2 Large Eggs
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Quinoa Flour
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chunks
1/2 cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes
Over low heat, melt the chocolate and the coconut oil. Stir slowly til mixture is smooth. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl beat eggs and sugar with a hand held mixed until it's frothy and light in color. Add vanilla, sea salt, and chocolate mixture. Beat til smooth. Slowly stir in quinoa flour. Add dark chocolate chunks and coconut flakes and stir one more time. Coat an 8x8 baking dish in coconut oil and add brownie mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
These are so decadent and can easily be made Vegan by using Flax Seed or Chia Seed "Eggs" and Agave Nectar or Organic Sugar instead of white sugar.
