Brownies: Spelt, Coconut Oil, Agave, Applesauce

I’m experimenting with Brownie recipes. Some people like them cakey, some people like them gooey, some people like them fudgy with that classic crackled top.

Here’s Brownie Recipe 1:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup melted coconut oil, plus more for pan
1 1/4 cups spelt flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup applesauce

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees C.
  2. Line one 9- by 3-inch cake pan with parchment paper and lightly coat with oil; set aside.
  3. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Add the oil, agave nectar and applesauce directly into the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 20 minutes on the centre rack until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
