Grain free, coconut flour chocolate brownies recipe

Since my Coeliac diagnosis I have experimented with all sorts of flours, but I have only recently discovered grain free flours. Of  them all coconut flour is my favourite and as a substitute to wheat flour I think it works really well in sweet baking. Also I do love coconut. If you are not so keen, I still recommend you try this recipe as it only tastes of chocolate!





This recipe will make 16 brownie squares.
You will need:
  • 115g baking margarine (I like stork)
  • 55g cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 45g coconut flour

Optional
You could add:
  • 85g chopped walnuts
  • 85g raisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 180c /gas mark 4. Line a 8'' 20cm square tin.
  2. Melt the margarine in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder.
  3. With an electric mixer, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla together until pale in colour and thick. Stir in the cocoa mixture.
  4. Fold in the coconut flour. If you want you can now add the walnuts or raisins and fold in.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the tin.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Leave to cool before cutting into squares.



Apologies for the rubbish photos but the light is fading fast now we have hit October!
