Double Dark Chocolate Brownie

Well, well, well… yet another chocolate recipe… and let me tell you… this one is DELISH. SO get on it! Don’t even read this post, just scroll down, check the ingredients, get to the directions, and bake this sucker. Then thank me later. WOO WOO.

I recently made some sweet potato brownies and I just wasn’t that impressed. I decided to modify it and try it out minus the sweet potato, and add a few things, mix it up, wing it a bit and BOOM. I literally made the healthy brownie of my dreams. I originally thought it would be more of a cake consistency (think Matilda) but I would say it is a rich, dark chocolate, brownie.. so grab your cup of almond milk (or whatever you like to drink with rich, dark chocolate desserts) and get on this recipe!

You only need a tiny piece to help you get your chocolate fix so it should last you a while.. however, keep it out of reach of anyone who loves chocolate because if you don’t tell them, they won’t know it’s healthy and go ham.. aka my fiancee. I don’t like sharing.

ALSO — it only makes it a six inch round sooo if you want to double batch it.. do it!!

So here is the deal.. I winged it, so I preheated the oven to 350 and popped it in for 15 minutes and checked it periodically. I think it would have been better at around 13-14 minutes. Use a toothpick to check in and see how it is doing so it won’t burn 🙂

I stored mine in a cake container on the kitchen table and it did not last long!
Refrigerate for 3-4 days or freeze (but I feel like it will not get to that point)

Enjoy,
