Fudgiest Healthy Brownies
1.5 cups hemp seed protein
1.5 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 flax eggs*
1 cup maple syrup
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
Optional – 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or dark chocolate chips.
*To make your flax eggs, simply combine 3 tbsp ground flax seeds with 7.5 tbsp water. Mix together, and let sit on the counter for 5-minutes to thicken.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a small-medium baking dish with parchment paper. The size of your dish will determine the thickness of the brownies.
In a bowl, whisk together hemp seed protein, cocoa powder, baking powder and sea salt. Add the flax eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract, and mix until a smooth, thick batter forms. Fold in additional nuts or chocolate chips if desired.
Scoop the batter into your baking dish, and spread smooth evenly across using a spatula.
Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes. The shorter you bake the brownies, the fudgier they will be.
