Guilt Free Brownies

Who ever says that it's hard to go Gluten Free and Sugar Free have never tried these brownies. These were so good that our neighbors loved them. My 14 month old kept coming back for more and even checked my plate to see if they were really gone. I didn't even feel guilty for giving them to him neither since they were loaded with nutrients and you will see why.

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz of walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tbs pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 oz unsweetened dark chocolate chopped (I used Ghiradellia 60% Cocoa due to availability in our area)
1 – 2 tbs coconut oil
Directions: 
  1. "Grease" the pan with the coconut oil.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  3. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor. (**Note I used the Ninja Mixer. It did take probably a little longer than with a food processor. It took about 15 minutes, you will have to stop and stir it around a bit)
  4. Keep pulsating until it is creamy. 
  5. Beat the egg in a separate bowl. 
  6. Add in the egg to the walnut butter. 
  7. Add in the honey, cocoa, and vanilla. Stir for about 2 minutes or until blended in. 
  8. Next add in the sea salt, baking soda and dark chocolate. 
  9. Once thoroughly mixed put in the pan. I used a 11X7 inch glass cake pan. 
  10. Baked for 25-30 minutes and ENJOY every bit of it.
