This is the recipe that I love to prepare for Valentine’s day. I believe that love must be shown everyday, and sharing homemade brownies anytime is a good way to do so. Do not forget that the most important ingredient is LOVE.
This recipe doesn’t use dairy neither eggs. Cream has been replaced by whole coconut milk, and eggs has been replaced by hydrated chia. Preparation time is 20 minutes and cooking time is 30 minutes.
Play some nice music, connect with that feeling of love in your heart and let the magic flow in your kitchen.
2 spoons chia seeds
4 spoons filtered natural water
Mix it well and let stand in the fridge for 2 hours. They will become like a gel. You will replace the eggs for this.
For the Brownies
150 g organic chocolate (70% or 80% NO MILK )
75 g vegan butter spread
3 spoons chia gel
1 cup organic brown sugar (coconut sugar my favorite)
1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint leaves
1 cup self-rising flour ( or 1 cup flour+ 1 teaspoon baking powder + ¼ teaspoon salt ).
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ teaspoon peppermint edible oil
more fresh mint leaves for decoration
small /medium Heart shaped cookie cutter ( optional )
For the chocolate fudge
1 can organic coconut milk (whole not light)
½ cup brown sugar
¼ organic cacao
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon peppermint oil
Let’s do this!
Preheat oven to 350F. Paint an 11x7 oven pan with the vegan butter.
Put chocolate in pieces in a small pan plus the vegan butter at low heat. Add sugar. Once melted let it stand.
Mix the chia gel with mint leaves and peppermint oil. Add to the melted chocolate. Then add flour little by little while you whisk up continuously. Add Love.
Then add this preparation to the oven pan. Cook for 30 or 35 minutes until is cooked on top but soft in the center. Let it cool outside the oven. Unmold very carefully. Use the heart shaped cookie cutter or cut brownies in small squares.
Mix all the ingredients and Warm up the mix in low heat in a small pan, stirring constantly. Add Love. When you get the desired consistency just serve on top of the brownies. You can use some mint leaves for decoration.
