There are few things, in my eyes, that beat the taste of a freshly baked brownie. Warm, dense, chocolatey, and just a tad undercooked… Pure sweet bliss.
The thing about brownies, though, is that if you want to bake them yourself… you’re making a whole batch. And if you don’t have a whole batch’s worth of friends to share them with, you better believe you’re going to be tempted to eat them all. Not to mention the fact that they take an entire half of an hour to make!
Well, maybe those things aren’t such negatives, but this recipe solves both of those issues. AND… these babies are gluten-free and vegan. They’re also free of refined sugar and filled with all things coconut. After I made one for this post, everyone around me wanted to try… and they all absolutely loved it.
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup palm sugar
4 tablespoons raw unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
2 teaspoons vegan chocolate chips
1 pinch salt
1. In a small glass container, warm the coconut milk and coconut oil just until the oil is fully melted.
2. Add in coconut flour, palm sugar, cocoa powder, and salt, and mix with a whisk until you have a smooth, even consistency.
3. Coat the inside of a glass or ceramic mug with a little bit of coconut oil, then spoon in your brownie mixture. Top with chocolate chips and heat in the microwave until the top is firm and bounces back when pressed (about 2 minutes). Allow to cool for a 2-3 minutes, then enjoy!
My advice is to enjoy with a friend… that’s a lot of chocolately goodness in one mug! :)
