or100 grams of chocolate, dark, 70-85%, chopped into even pieces
or1/2 cup of coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
or1/4 Cup of almond Meal (30 g)
or1/4 gram of cacao Powder (4 g)
or1 tsp of cinnamon
or3 eggs, whisked
or1 tsp of vanilla extract (4 g)
or1/4 cup of rice Malt Syrup (85 g)
Preheat a fan-forced oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 and grease 12 holes of a muffin tin with butter or coconut oil
Place chocolate pieces into a large mixing bowl.
Melt butter or coconut oil in a separate bowl in the microwave. Pour over chocolate chunks and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth and combined. If you need to heat this a little to completely melt the chocolate, heat in microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time.
Add in almond meal, cacao, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Stir through. Pour in eggs, rice malt syrup and vanilla and stir through until you form a smooth batter.
Pour batter between the greased muffin holes. Place into the oven and bake for 10–12 minutes, until the edges of the brownie have set.
Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from the muffin tin. Dust with raw cacao powder to serve.
Note: This recipe contains 1 teaspoon of added sweetener per serve, so we recommend you reserve this treat for special occasions only. You might also like to use 90% dark chocolate to reduce the sweetener even further.
