Grain-Free Chocolate Walnut Brownies
This grain-free brownie recipe can be whipped up in a snap! Only a food processor is needed, meaning not too many dishes to wash! There is no need to add any extra oil or butter because the ground walnuts provide plenty of fats—and heart healthy ones at that. Serve brownies with one of our coconut ice cream recipes for a decadent dessert treat.
2 cups raw walnuts
⅓ cup cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 large organic eggs
½ cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish with coconut oil.
Place the walnuts into a food processor fitted with the “s” blade. Process until very finely ground, stopping just before they turn into nut butter. Then add the remaining dry ingredients and pulse again to combine. Add the wet ingredients and process again until smooth. You will still have tiny chunks of walnuts visible and this is fine.
Pour batter into baking dish. Spread evenly into pan with a rubber spatula or spoon. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool for about 20 minutes before slicing.
Yield: 16 servings
Variation: Replace the walnuts with raw pecans.
