GLUTEN & LACTOSE FREE FLOURLESS BROWNIE
I’m on a brownie-roll. I want to try different healthy (or healthier) brownie recipes for all those times I have a sweet tooth, but don’t want to eat sugar.
I think and hope that’s quite possible as not everything sweet has to be sugary! On my list are brownies made with sweet potato, chick peas, and even avocado.
This one on the other hand is a little less healthy, but very very easy to make and so delicious! Only 4 ingredients needed and it tastes just as good without the walnuts.
– 200 grams pure chocolate (as pure as possible)
– 100 grams plant based margarine
– Scoop of honey for sweetness
– 3 eggs
– 50 grams of walnuts
Start by gathering your ingredients. If you don’t like honey, you can also use maple syrup. Also, I think it can even work with less margarine! Preheat the oven on 180 degrees celsius.
Edit: The walnuts are extra. They just give the brownie an extra crunch, which I really like. Also, if you want the brownie to be more airy, add half a teaspoon of baking soda.
Melt the chocolate au bain-marie. Fill a pan with boiling water, put it on low fire and place a heat resistant bowl on top. Break the chocolate in small pieces and let them melt. Then, add the margarine and let that melt and mix too.
Edit: I simply used the lid of my pan, but I would advise using a stone bowl or any other bowl that can resist heat.
Separate the eggs by breaking the egg in the middle and jiggling the egg until all egg white has fallen into the bowl. Then, mix the egg whites with a mixer until it foams.
Edit: Use a mixture instead of a whisk to mix to the egg whites. It’s very important to get these fluffy and foamy.
Add the extra ingredients like the crushed walnuts, honey and whatever else you think works. Save a couple of walnuts for the end to place on top.
Edit: It’s important to mix with a spoon now, in order to not break down the fam.
Add the egg yolk and mix with a spoon. Then, add the chocolate mix and mix again until the the mixture becomes a dark brown.
Edit: I forgot to use a spoon instead of a mixer, so my brownies sadly weren’t very airy.
Get an oven-proof tray and grease it with a bit of margarine or olive oil. Than, pour in the mixture and place decorative walnuts on top. Last step is putting the tray in a pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes. Check after 20 minutes, mine were already done by then.
Edit: The brownie will get out quite airy, but keep in mind that the next day it will be inflated. ;)
