Finding a healthy brownie recipe can be tough. The problem is that when you are craving brownies nobody really wants a ‘healthy-tasting’, ‘grain-free’, version of their favorite treat. So I set out to find a ‘healthier’ brownie recipe that still had pretty healthy ingredients but did not sacrifice taste! I was sooooooo pleased and slightly proud of this recipe because it truly tastes just as good as an ‘unhealthy’ brownie without all of the guilt! Another plus is how simple and easy this recipe is to make ❤
This recipe was inspired by this recipe: Healthier Brownies
1 and 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 cup goats milk yogurt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
- Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper (the only way you will be able to get your brownie out of the pan without it breaking) and preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
- Add a cup of water to a medium size pot and get it to a boil. Once it is boiling place a glass bowl (or any heatproof bowl) on the top of the pot. In the glass bowl add the chocolate chips and melted coconut oil. Make sure the boiling water does not touch the glass bowl. This process is known as a Bain-Marie.
- Stir until the chocolate has completely melted. Make sure to continuously stir to prevent burning.
- Once the chocolate has melted completely take it off the pot and turn the stove off. Add the yogurt, salt, baking soda, and coconut sugar into the melted chocolate. Stir until everything is well incorporated.
- Measure out your flour and then pour it into the ‘chocolatey’ mixture. Stir until you can’t see the flour anymore.
- Pour the mixture into the pre-prepared pan and bake in the oven for 28-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out with a few stray cake pieces.
- LET THE CAKE COOL. The brownie batter was very liquids based so the brownie will break apart easily. Let the brownie sit for at least 30 minutes before removing it from the pan. The brownie will probably still pull apart at the edges but despite this, the taste and moistness of the cake make it worth it.
I hope you enjoyed this healthy-ish brownie recipe!
