1-3/4 cups (one 15 oz. can) unflavored pureed pumpkin

1-1/2 cups sugar

56a

Directions

Spray or grease 9×13 baking pan; set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Chop unsweetened chocolate bar into 10-12 pieces, and to a  large microwaveable bowl, and microwave on high. Stop and stir every 30 seconds until there are a few chunks left that can be stirred and melted in. (Total microwave time is approx. 2 min.; actual time may vary).

To bowl with melted chocolate, add pumpkin, sugar, and vanilla and stir until uniformly mixed. Add flour, flaxseed, baking powder, and salt; stir until just combined– don’t over mix.  Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup nuts, just until evenly distributed.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread evening. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 nuts evenly over top of batter.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until set in middle and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with only moist crumbs. (If toothpick comes in contact with a melted chocolate chip, it will be coated in melted chocolate when it is removed. If so test in another place until you’ve tested a spot without a chocolate chip.)

Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.

Paleo Gluten Free Brownies

8

Paleo Gluten Free Brownies

INGREDIENTS:

125g (1 cup) blanched almond flour (also called almond powder in international supermarkets)

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon baking soda (called natron in Norwegian)

115g (4 ounces) baking chocolate (70+% cacao), roughly chopped or in disks

7 Medjool dates, pits removed

3 large eggs

125ml (½ cup) coconut oil, melted

Seeds from 1 vanilla pod

½ teaspoon vanilla stevia

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Spray your baking pan with non-stick spray and set aside. Preheat your oven to 175C/350F.
  2. Add the almond flour, salt and baking soda to the bowl of food processor and pulse together. Add in the chocolate pieces and pulse again until the mixture resembles sand, before adding in the dates. Pulse the mix again until the dates are finely chopped and well incorporated into the mixture. Be sure to pulse in the ingredients in the right order as this helps them incorporate better into the mixture.
  3. Next, add your eggs into the mix all at once, and pulse the machine until they are fully incorporated. Finally, add in the coconut oil, vanilla seeds, and stevia then pulse until the mixture is smooth. It should look like dark brown silly putty, and be very pliable.
  4. Add the mixture to the baking pan and smooth the top with a spoon, rubber or offset spatula. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 hours, before serving.

Rocky Road Brownies

Rocky Road Brownies

Yield : 8″ x 8″

INGREDIENTS:

Brownies:
4 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces (can replace 1/4 butter with 1/4 cup Greek yogurt)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Topping:
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Directions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and place rack in center of oven. Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, an 8 inch square baking pan.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar. Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Finally, stir in the flour and salt. If substituting 1/2 the butter, add the Greek yogurt now.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove from oven, and immediately sprinkle the brownies with the chocolate chips, miniature marshmallows and chopped nuts. Return the brownies to the oven and bake for about 2-3 minutes, or just until the marshmallows start to melt (broil if you want the marshmallows browned). Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
