Recently, someone asked me for a recipe for brownies made with coconut flour, and I thought that was a great idea. Coconut flour bakers would surely agree that it is almost unthinkable to not have a basic, simple brownie recipe using just coconut flour. And this brownie is quite basic and easy to dress up.
One of my favorite “guides” for baking with coconut flour is a book by Bruce Fife, Cooking with Coconut Flour. While he uses processed sugar quite often, if you’re game, you can adjust his recipes with a couple of general guidelines I’ve suggested here. This recipe was inspired by his recipe for brownies.
Some dressing ideas include adding nuts to the batter (walnuts are excellent in brownies), chocolate chips, a bit of espresso powder or instant coffee, and once baked a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some caramel sauce.
