Guest Post from Caroline at Gustsy: GAPS Fudge Brownies

Say hello to Caroline from Gutsy.com.  She’s an innovative and savvy blogger that creates amazing GAPS recipes.  She is quickly becoming a go-to resource in the GAPS and grain free community.  I’m thrilled to have her guest post today and share one of her delightful creations: GAPS Fudge Brownies. 
Oh yes she did!  Enjoy.  Please check out her site, take a moment to read her healing journey (what a journey) and get inspired by this awesome lady.   
GAPS Fudge Brownies (egg/dairy/grain free):

Ingredients:

-3/4 cup honey or vanilla honey

-40 drops (2 droppers full of stevia) *optional

-1/4cup cocoa powder

-2 oz Bakers unsweetened chocolate (gives it that “fudgy” taste)

-2 tsp vanilla extract (unless you use vanilla honey)

-1/4 tsp sea salt

-1 Tbsp coconut oil

-1/4 cup previously brewed organic coffee *optional

-1 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour

The final product! 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees

2. Melt Bakers chocolate over a double boiler (make you own with heat proof bowl over boiling pot of water).

3. Once your chocolate is melted, add in 1 cup of homemade coconut butter (it wil be hard, so this helps soften it). Stir until all liquidly.

4.  Pour your coconut butterchocolate mixture from step 3 into a bigger bowl or blend in a Cuisinart (this is easier on your hand, because the batter is thick!)

5. (order is important) First mix in honey, vanilla, coconut oil, *coffee (optional), and then *stevia (optional). Stir or blend!

6. Sprinkle in cocoa powder, sea salt and coconut flour and stir/blend until combined.

7. Line a 9” by 9” baking pan with coconut oil and parchment paper (unbleached) on the bottom.

8. Pour the thick ooey gooey batter into the prepared pan, and smooth out with a spatula.

9. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Once done, they should still be very gooey.

10. Cool for 20+ minutes before you slice. (Tip: put in fridge until hard and you can slice them perfect!)…but who wants to wait until the brownie is cold! Not me J

11. Enjoy your GAPS friendly treat!

* Stevia and coffee enhance the brownie’s flavor. These ingredients are not GAPS legal, so take them out if you need to. Still amazing without them J
