Tahini & Black Cocoa Brownies

Recipe:

  • 1 C Chocolate Chips, divided
  • 1/4 Butter Flavored Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 2/3 C Light Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 C GF 1-to-1 Flour
  • 1/2 C Black Cocoa Powder (you can substitute any dutch process cocoa)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Large Eggs + 1 Yolk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/2 C chocolate chips on 50% power for 2 minutes, then stir every 30 seconds until melted.  Add the coconut oil to the melted chocolate and stir well.  Add in the tahini and vanilla and stir until smooth.  Set aside to cool a bit.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.  Stir in sugars.  Add the melted chocolate mixture to the flour and fold together.  

In a smaller bowl, crack the eggs.  Beat the eggs.  Add the beaten eggs to the chocolate mixture.  Fold together until mostly smooth (there may be a few small lumps).  Fold in the other 1/2 C chocolate chips.  Spread into prepared pan.

In a small bowl combine the following:

  • 3 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup

Stir well until smooth.  Dollop tahini on top of brownies.  Then swirl around with a knife or wooden skewer.  

Bake in preheated oven for 25-28 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out with just a few crumbs attached.

Remove from oven and cool in the pan.  Store in an airtight container.
