Happy Easter Monday! Wouldn't you know it, the last day of what has been a lovely long weekend and I woke up this morning with a cold. Blech! I guess I should be grateful that it's the first one I've had in months.
Anyways, I made these for an end-of-Passover event we are attending next weekend. I had another recipe in mind using almond meal, but then realized it isn't smart to bring products with nuts to big gatherings. No worries, these are nut-free and A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Really chocolatey and fudgy, but not too sweet. Oh, also gluten-free too. They are so good, they don't even need icing, and I don't say that too often.
Fudgy Passover Brownies
250g bag dark chocolate chips, melted
1.5 cups boiling water
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Whisk together chocolate with water, apple sauce, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Scrape batter into a greased 9x9 square baking tin. Cool completely. Cut into squares and remove from pan with spatula (be careful, they're delicate!). Makes 16 brownies. Can be frozen.
