Choco-Love Brownies

Coconut oil

1 1/4 cup Natural Unsweetened Applesauce

1 Small Banana  {ripe}

1 cup Unsweetened Raw Cocoa Powder {call co. to ensure its allergy free}

1/4 t Sea Salt

1 T 100% pure Maple Syrup

2 t Vanilla Extract

1 1/4 cup Brown Rice Flour {gluten-free}

1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

Grease a medium-sized baking dish with your coconut oil. Pre-heat oven to 350.

Put banana in mixer and let it turn to mush :). Add applesauce. Next add flour and cocoa powder* and continue to mix. I usually scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure it’s all getting mixed together. Then add in your salt, maple syrup, and vanilla. After the mixture is good and fluffy** fold in your EL Chips.

*Cocoa powder is measured the same as flour. Spoon it into your measuring cup and then level the cup off. If it is packed in it may result in a different flavor/texture.

**I say fluffy because this isn’t going to look like your boxed brownie mixture. It will look a little bit fluffy and a lot less runny.

My dish is medium in size and the brownies turn out about an inch thick!

Then pour batter into your greased baking dish. For a batter that pours to be about an inch thick you will need to cook on 350 for 30 minutes on {or as close to} the center rack.  When you test for doneness {with a butter knife} be sure to check in a few spots in the center of the brownie. The EL chips tend to melt down and may trick ya if you do your test where a few have gathered together.  

I hope you enjoy this clean, allergy free, and !Oh! so yummy treat for your next cheat day…. Or on the next day ending in “y”. 😉
