Brodie’s Ooey-Gooey Brownie Treats...

This recipe was born out of a desire to help a friend whose son has just been diagnosed with severe allergies...as some of you know the struggle to adapt and find food options can be overwhelming so, this was my attempt to lend a hand...

Brodie's Ooey-Gooey Brownie Treat
From Kristi’s Kitchen

3 tbsp. flaxmeal
9 tbsp. filtered water
2 tsp. sugar-free vanilla
¼ c. + 3 tbsp. grapeseed oil OR coconut oil,melted
½ c. + 1 tbsp. coconut nectar
¼ c. + 1 tbsp. coconut milk
¼ c. coconut flour, sifted
1/3 c. cocoa powder
½ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. baking powder

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Combine flaxmeal and water in a small sauce
-Bring to a boil and simmer until thick and creamy, about 3 minutes- whisking constantly
-Remove from heat
-Add vanilla, oil, nectar and milk (While still very warm if using coconut oil)
-Whisk until well combined
-In a glass bowl, sift together coconut flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder
-Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until smooth
-Using a small amount of oil, grease an 8x8 glass baking dish
-Spread the batter even across the dish
-Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes
-Bring to room temperature and refrigerate over night before cutting and serving

This treat is truly ooey-gooey...you can not skip the refrigeration step...it needs the time in the refrigerator to come together...

SIDENOTE: the flaxmeal and water are the egg replacers in this recipe -equivalent to 3 eggs...I plan on making this today with the egg to see how it turns out -I'll post an update in the comment section and let you know...

This is oh so yummy, healthy and VIRTUALLY allergy-free!

  1. So, I added two eggs and left in 1 tbsp. flaxmeal and 3 tbsp. of water and it turned out great! It was a bit spongy. I think the 3rd egg would of made it into a chocolate muffin...see my "Decadent Black Forest Brownie Delight" post for a delicious application!
