Simple Cinnamon Sugar Brownies (V/GF)

Updated: May 4, 2018

The correct term for gluten-free, dairy-free, low glycemic brownies? Probably compost.

There's no such thing as a bad brownie. Like even a bad brownie is still a decent brownie, especially when you sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and therefore have a cinnamon sugar cocoa brownie . My Simple Cinnamon Sugar Brownie recipe calls for coconut sugar, which is low glycemic and has more vitamins and minerals (Vitamin B, C, potassium and calcium) than your generic white table sugar, which is also heavily processed & stripped of its nutrients!! Anyway. Enough of my chit chat. Recipe below.

For the brownie batter:

· 1 cup organic buckwheat flour

· 1 cup organic unsweetened cocoa powder

· ¼ tsp salt

· ½ tsp baking powder

· ½ cup coconut sugar

· 2 packets of stevia

· 2 tbsp flaxseed meal

· 1 cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk

· ½ cup coconut oil

· 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar sprinkle:

· ½ cup coconut sugar

· 2 tbsp of cinnamon

[serves 6-9]

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (176 C) and lightly coat an 8in cake pan with unrefined coconut oil or insert paper liner

2. Mix 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal with 3tbsp of water, set aside for 5 minutes (this is called a flax "egg")

3. Mix room temperature coconut oil + flax egg + coconut sugar + stevia + baking powder + salt + cocoa powder + vanilla

4. Mix in the buckwheat flour. This would also be the time to add whatever additional toppings you'd like here (chocolate chips, peanut butter, walnuts, get wild!) Fold them in to the batter

5. Scoop the batter evenly into the oiled pan until 3/4 full & bake on the middle rack (or any rack if you have a convection oven) for 20-25 minutes

6. Let rest for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve!

They'll last about 3-5 days in an air tight container or in the freezer more long-term.
