Coming to America 6 years ago I discovered a number of foods I’d never seen before. Some of them I’m happy to remain a stranger to but one of them…
First up a little sidenote: I thought it would be fun to make these in a skillet too, and then got totally carried away looking at skillets… it happens to me often 😉 Some people shop for clothes in weak moments, I shop for cast iron. There you go. But I found THE cutest mini cast iron skillets by my favorite brand Lodge on Amazon. I’m not sure how they’re so low priced right now but snap. them. up. guys. I’m going to!! Somehow buying 8 is cheaper that buying 6 (huh?!), and they’re only $35 for a set, so I’m going to concoct some mini skillet goodies with them! Cos individual desserts win my heart! Now back to brownies.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raw runny honey (you can also use coconut sugar, maple syrup or a combo but my personal fave is honey)
2 room temperature eggs
1/2 cup organic fair-trade cocoa
3/4 tsp baking powder
Good pinch pink salt
1/3 cup fresh raspberries halved
In a small pan on a (very) gentle heat melt together the coconut oil and almond butter, then stir in the cocoa and take them off the heat. If your house is warm enough and they’re already melted just stir them together!
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla and the honey until they’re combined and fluffy, then pour in the cocoa mixture. Whisk everything together until it’s smooth and completely combined.
In a third bowl mix the almond flour, baking powder and pink salt and then fold those into the wet mixture, then when they’re combined, add in the raspberries and stir just enough to distribute them evenly.
Line a 7″ square pan (I love THIS one for being stainless steel! You know me and non stick – I’m fully eradicating it from our house!) with parchment paper or use 7-8″ cast iron skillet for a skillet brownie…. and then just top it with ice cream right in the skillet and scoop it out from there. Or split it into individual mini skillets for super cute personal desserts and top them with ice cream… hello!
Spread the batter out and pop them in a 350F oven and set your timer for 25 minutes. Every oven is different, but they’ll take between 25-30 minutes. You want them to be set, but not solid like cake. Then let them cool in the pan before you cut them with a sharp knife!
I’d never had pumpkin pie, or celebrated Thanksgiving until I was 20 and first came to the States. I never dreamed I’d still be here almost 10 years later, let…
We have about 4 breakfasts over here that we rotate without any extra creativity. We always eat it, and we always eat it together before the day starts but it’s a…
I just stopped reading to answer a DM and it was someone asking for this recipe – it’s posted way back on the site but got lost in the transfer…
