Ingredients
  • 1 cup cooked carrots (about 3 carrots)
  • 3 large whole eggs
  • 3 ounces Baker's unsweetened baking chocolate squares (100% cacao)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 6 Tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Tropical Traditions coconut flour, packed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease an 8" x 8" glass baking dish with coconut oil.
  3. Place three carrots in a steamer and cook until tender, about 25 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Melt chocolate squares in a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, just place a glass Pyrex or oven-safe bowl over a small pan of water. It will take about 15 minutes to heat the water and melt the chocolate. If your coconut oil is solidified, add to the bowl and melt.
  5. Place 2 eggs and cooled carrots in your blender, or [easyazon-link asin="B001WAKFDY" locale="us"]Magic Bullet MBR-1701 17-Piece Express Mixing Set[/easyazon-link] and process until pureed. Move to a medium sized mixing bowl.
  6. Add remaining egg, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt into the mixing bowl. When the chocolate squares and coconut oil are melted, add into the mixing bowl. Mix together.
  7. The mixture should be creamy, like pudding. Add 1 Tablespoon of coconut flour at a time, waiting one minute in between adding more to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquids. You are looking for a brownie-like batter. Spread the batter into the 8x8 glass cooking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F and brownies are firm to the touch.
  8. Makes 9 large brownies, or 36 bite sized.
