HEALTHY VALENTINE'S TREAT


Loaded with flavonols and polyphenols from the cocoa powder and cacao nibs, these vegan brownies are actually good for you! Try this simple recipe for your Valentine or for a rich chocolate treat.


Ingredients


1/3 cup non-hydrogenated margarine

½ cup cocoa powder

3 Tbsp Ener G Egg Replacer (available in health food stores)

¾ to 1 cup warm water

½ cup unrefined sugar

1Tbsp stevia powder

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ cup coconut flour

½ cup raw cacao nibs


Directions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt margarine and add cocoa powder. Mix well. If mixture is too thick, add 1 Tbsp canola oil. Set aside. In a separate bowl or glass measuring cup, mix the warm water with Ener G Egg Replacer until foamy. Mix in vanilla extract, sugar and stevia. Blend with cocoa mixture. Stir in the coconut flour and mix thoroughly. If batter is lumpy, add a small amount of warm water. Add the cacao nibs last. Mixture will be thick but not too lumpy.

Grease a 8 x 8 inch baking pan with canola oil. Add batter and smooth with a spatula.


Bake in a 8 x 8 baking pan for 15 minutes.

Remove and cool.


Yield – 8 brownies
