Healthier Brownies

To me, chocolate is like heaven. I mean who doesn't want a piece of this moist, rich and tasty slice of brownie? It's an all time classic when having guests over or when you just want to make yourself a little something. Here, I'm taking a classic brownie recipe and I've tried to make it healthier. I actually think this healthier version tastes better than the classic one! The chocolate flavour is so much more intense, and I especially love the nutty flavour! This is actually a very easy cake to make, and it keeps wonderfully in room temperature for days and days!

Makes 10 brownies

1 cup almond meal
2/3 cup quinoa flour / buckwheat flour
6 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp raw cocoa powder
3 tbsp cane sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
optional: 1 tsp chilli flakes

Start by preheating the oven to 180°C / 350°F. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. If you don't know how to make almond meal, you simply do that by pulsing almonds in a food processor for maximum 2 minutes, or before the nut oils are released. Stir in the coconut oil and the eggs. Place the batter into a lined baking dish and cook in the oven for 25 minutes. Once taken out of the oven it's all ready to be eaten and enjoyed!


  1. Looks good!:)
    How big is the baking pan?

    1. Thanks a lot! Sorry for late answer. The baking pan I used was about 20cm x 30 cm! If you decide to make this truly delicious brownie, let me know how it turned out! :)
