gluten free - dairy free - grain free - nut free - soy free
It's officially winter here in southern Arizona - which means it's 70 in the day and our coats and fuzzy socks come out for the 50 degree mornings.
A girl that's never spent more than a weekends vacation in the snow, this is winter to me and with that comes the want for cozy, warm, rich and comforting foods.
And the occasional warm, fresh-from the oven, ooey-gooey treat.
I was never a chocolate lover as a young kid or teen, and even my son is just starting to come around to the deep, rich flavors of a good cacao, so it wasn't until much later in life that I started to appreciate the brownie.
As a matter of fact, making these this weekend was the first time my six year old son had ever tried one.
What I love most about these? They are moist and fudgy and grain-free! Also gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free and soy-free, they will fit nicely into most food allergy families. Just skip these ones if you can't bake with eggs.
Quick to whip up, I suggest making a double or triple batch. Especially if you plan to share - because these go quick!
1/2 C. avocado oil or vegan butter
1/3 C. cassava flour (I use Otto's, Anthony's or It's Just)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. coconut sugar
1 C. dark chocolate chips (we love the Enjoy Life morsels)
2 TSBP. cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt (optional, but great for minerals and flavor!)
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. For more of my story you can click here.
All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
