Unveiling the Chocolate Brownie Monsters
Makes: 16 Monsters | Prep Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients You'll Need:
For the Brownies:
- 50 g (½ cup) oat flour
- 30 g (¼ cup) almond meal
- 70 g ( ½ cup) coconut sugar
- 50 g ( ½ cup) raw cacao powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ⅛ tsp vanilla powder
- 125 g ( ½ cup) butter, melted and allowed to cool
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 70 g ( ½ cup) chocolate chips
For the Topping:
- 100 g (1 bar) dark chocolate, melted
- Googly eyes
Step 1: Preheat and Prepare
Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F). Lightly grease a 20 cm square baking tray, then line the tray with parchment paper. This ensures your brownies won't stick.
Step 2: Mix Up the Brownie Batter
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, almond meal, coconut sugar, raw cacao powder, baking soda, and vanilla powder. Give it a good whisk to ensure all the dry ingredients are well mixed.
Now, it's time to add some chocolatey magic. Pour in the melted and cooled butter, followed by the whisked eggs. Stir vigorously until all the ingredients come together, forming a thick, delectable batter.
Don't forget to fold in those chocolate chips. They're the secret to making these brownies utterly irresistible!
Step 3: Bake to Perfection
Transfer the thick batter into the prepared baking pan. Use a spatula to spread it evenly. Don't worry if it seems a bit stubborn; this is a dense and fudgy brownie recipe.
Slide the pan into your preheated oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep an eye on them; they might still appear slightly wobbly in the middle when you take them out. But don't fret; they'll firm up as they cool.
Step 4: Unleash the Monsters
Patience is key – allow your brownies to cool completely. This can take up to 2 hours, but it's worth it to ensure they don't crumble when you slice them.
Step 5: Bring Your Monsters to Life
Once your brownies are cool and ready, it's time for the fun part. Melt the dark chocolate and use it as a deliciously dark canvas to attach googly eyes to each brownie slice. This is where the monsters come to life!
Step 6: Serve and Enjoy
With the googly eyes in place, your Chocolate Brownie Monsters are ready to make their grand appearance. Serve them up at your Halloween gathering, and watch your guests' faces light up with delight.
