Dark Chocolate Whole Wheat Brownies

Ok not the best photo of this brownie but I'm telling you it's delicious! I promise you that.  And this brownie isn't any old brownie it's a DARK Chocolate brownie and boy is it!  I used a combination of recipes I found on different blogs (all which had much better photos than I do of their brownies) and made it my own.  This is the type of brownie that doesn't kid around, you want a hot cup of tea with this bad boy!  

But you know what's awesome about this brownie?  It can be made in no time!  And it's considered clean/real food because the ingredients are all pretty healthy for ya!  Gotta like that!

Dark Chocolate Whole Wheat Brownie Recipe

1 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour 
1 cup unsweetened cocoa, you will have much better results if you use “dark” cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup maple syrup (or honey )
2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3 to 4 eggs
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 8X8 inch square glass baking dish with oil or butter.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a bowl including the flour, cocoa and baking powder and set aside.
  3. In a small pot on the stove melt the coconut oil together with the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  4. Once the coconut oil is melted whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add the egg and keep whisking until it's mixed together thoroughly. If using nuts fold them into the batter with a spatula.
  5. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 16 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
  6. Cool and Top with Dark Chocolate Frosting
  7. Eat or store in an air-tight container at room temperature - enjoy!
