Bad Ass Easter Brownies

" Why does licking the spoon of the brownie batter never fail to make one so utterly and sublimely happy? "  Perhaps it's all the sugar and  butter?  WRONG!!!  it's the amazing coconut oil, coconut sugar and 80% bittersweet chocolate that makes this mixture so incredible!

These took be approx 7 minutes to whip up (for my sins, I used the microwave) but when you have a baby strapped in the 'week end' sling and you have a play date with your toddler, you really don't have time or extra arms for pots and pans.

This was a one bowl, one spoon show and full of pleasure.  Like all my cooking, I took the recipe from a variety of online links with 'no sugar' in the title, then bastardised them all to come up with the following.  Granted these are not 100% totally sugar free as the chocolate has SOME sugar in it but, guys... live a little it's Good Friday! Who needs an Easter bunny when you have these Bad Ass Brownies!  

  • 5 table spoons of coconut oil 
  • 3/4 of a bag of bittersweet chocolate chips (the bag is 10oz) 
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Put the oil and chocolate into a bowl and blitz in the micro for 30 seconds, stir then another 10 seconds at a time until the chocolate melts - DO NOT COOK YOUR CHOCOLATE!!!  Add the sugar and stir, add the vanilla, pinch of salt and eggs, stir.  Then add the flour and beat up for about a minute so the batter is nice and smooth.

I threw in a handful of chocolate chips and walnuts for fun.  Put in a tray in the oven - to be honest I didn't even check the temp, I think it was 350 / 180.  i baked for 20 minutes. Took them out and am now eating them whilst they are still hot....  YUM!!!
