As a Holistic Nutritionist I try to make healthy choices with all my meals, but I still want to have my cake and eat it too!!

You can have these Dark Chocolate Chili Brownies guilt-free.

Andrea adapted this recipe which is simple to make and the ingredients can be cut in half or doubled very easily, depending on the quantity you want to make. The other great thing about this recipe is that the measurements don’t have to be exact, so don’t worry about fussing over whether you have added too much chocolate or not enough coconut oil.

Dark Chocolate Chili Brownies

(gluten-free, nut-free)

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cooking time: 10 minutes | Serving size: 30-35 bites

Ingredients

  • 200g organic dark chocolate (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
  • 3/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup organic coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour (or any gluten-free flour)
  • 4 large organic eggs (or chia eggs substitute)
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne powder (adjust to your taste, I usually go up to 1/2 teaspoon depending on the strength of the cayenne)
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs *optional
  • Pinch salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Melt the coconut oil and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat.
  3. Pour the melted coconut oil and chocolate into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add sugar and stir until mixed with a wooden spoon. Allow the mixture to cool.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. If you are using an egg substitute, you may add it all at once, mixing thoroughly.
  6. Stir in the flour, chili, cayenne, salt and mix well. Fold in mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs if using.
  7. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil and pour the Dark Chocolate Chili Brownies mixture into the pan about ¾ full. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Allow Dark Chocolate Chili Brownies to cool before removing from pan, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Dark Chocolate Chili Brownies taste the best at room temperature. Store remainder in an airtight container and refrigerate. Remove from fridge about an hour before serving. They can also be frozen for up to one month, but they are so yummy they won’t last that long!
