I was trying to think of a good reason for making fudge brownies today. But I’m just in love with anything sweet. Trying to keep it under control, but whatever.
I looked up some fudge brownies earlier today. Saw a few, one mentioning the use of figs- I was intrigued. Knowing that I’m not good at following recipes to the letter, I just tried to remember to buy figs and things that sounded good for brownies.
Here’s what I used:
1 c Coconut flour
1/4 (ish) c Arrowroot flour
1/4 (ish) Tapioca flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon grass fed butter
1/2 c Almond Milk (unsweetened vanilla)
Figs- a bunch?
1 bag enjoy life chocolate chunks
2 pieces? Raw Cocoa Butter
What I did:
I poured all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Use a food processor to mix up some figs until they’re gooey in texture. In a frying pan, heat the 2 pieces of cocoa butter. As the butter melts, add the chocolate chunks. Next, slowly add almond milk and mix until it there is a smooth chocolate consistency.
Back to the bowl of dry ingredients – Add in the eggs, some melted butter and the figs. Mix together. Add in the almond milk. Pour half the batter into a baking pan. Then pour in the chocolate mixture. Top with the other half of the batter.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Let cool before eating.
I’m happy with how they came out, but they were not as gooey as I was hoping. I still felt they were a bit on the dry side, something that seems to be a reoccurring theme in my baking. I think I should have broke down the figs better to allow for a more gooey/fudge like taste. I did like the taste of the smooth chocolate mixture on it’s own. It had a very brownie-like taste to it, so that wasn’t the issue. It’s all a work in progress. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
