I like to mix up ingredients and not always use the same things when I cook, especially bake.
I had recently bought some sprouted spelt flour and coconut sugar.
Craving brownies last night, I realized I had all the ingredients for some ‘healthy wellness’ brownies and gave it a try.
‘Healthy wellness’ is what my oldest daughter has called everything I make like this since she was 6.
Me: Hey! I made brownies!!
Her: Oh what are they healthy wellness brownies?? Ewww
LOL. Good times.
Well these healthy wellness brownies turned out pretty good!
They are not super sweet (which is both good and bad :D) and they are very moist (hello, lots of butter).
My advice to you is to give this recipe a try and play around with the ingredients. Adding and subtracting things to your taste & degree of ‘healthy wellness’ desire.
Spelt Flour ‘Healthy Wellness’ Brownies by Adrienne
1 1/4 cup spelt flour
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 t. vanilla
4 oz chocolate, melted
6 oz butter, melted
1/4 t baking powder
pinch sea salt
walnuts to add to top, optional
- Whisk eggs, sugar & vanilla.
2. Combine flour, baking powder & sea salt.
3. Melt butter & chocolate.
Once butter & chocolate are melted and not super hot, add a little bit of this mixture to the eggs & sugar at a time. Once the mixture is ‘tempered’ add in the rest of the butter & chocolate, whisking to combine well. Next, add in the flour mixture, combining it all with a spatula being mindful not to over mix.
Butter a 9 X 9 inch pan and add your brownie mix in. Add walnuts to the top if desired.
Bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes.
Check middle to see if a knife comes out clean, if not, cook another 5 minutes or so.
Here are some of the ingredients I used:
Give it a try and be sure to let me know how it goes!
Do you plan on changing any ingredients?
I’d love to hear of any ‘healthy wellness’ adventure!
