(I do at least use all organic from scratch ingredients, but to each their own).
230 g unsalted butter
300 g coconut &/or rapadura sugar
1 tsp baking powder
75 g cacao powder
100 g flour
150 g chopped dark chocolate chunks or chocolate chips (I use 70% cacao dark choc chips from honest to goodess)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
Essential oil: 4-8 drops depending on taste preference, We love Peppermint, some love Orange, either are delish!
This can easily be turned into a thermo recipe… just do the combining on a medium speed and heat the butter before adding the remaining ingredients back in to combine again. Can’t really go wrong, just don’t over-mix.
In a large mixing bowl, mix sugar, baking powder, cacao powder, flour & set aside.
In a small uncovered pot, add butter and salt and melt on low heat. Remove from heat and add to cacao mix, using electric mixer. Don’t over mix.
Lightly beat 4 eggs and add to cacao mix one at a time, adding vanilla extract, essential oil of choice and dark chocolate chips last before combining completely.
Pour mixture into a greased square baking tin and spread evenly.
Bake 60 minutes at 160 C fan forced or until wooden skewer comes out clean. Leave in tin to cool before cutting. Serve warm or store in fridge for 1-2 weeks. Enjoy !!!
