Baking With Coconut Flour
Posted 13 February 2012 - 09:36 AM
It all just seems so easy. Here is one recipe. Could it possibly be this easy?!!
Fudgy Coconut Flour Brownies
1 cup butter or ghee, melted and slightly cooled
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup honey
3/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup coconut flour
Butter a 9×13 pan (mine was slightly larger than 9×13). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, remove from heat. Add the cocoa powder into the butter, set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. Add in the honey, vanilla and salt and whisk well.
Add in the coconut flour, little bits at a time, mixing well to avoid lumps.
Add in the cocoa powder-butter mixture and whisk very well. If you do not whisk well enough, you’ll have clumps in your brownies that are yellow when the rest is chocolatey-brown.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This was the easiest gluten-free recipe for baked goods I've ever made! It really was that easy. The coconut flour soaks up the moisture from the eggs and everything adheres easily. The texture was really nice. I'd serve them to people who usually eat baked goods made out of wheat flour and I'm sure I'd have no complaints. (I don't say that about every recipe!)

Brownies are easy with just coconut flour and you do not need any gums as brownies do not need structure or to rise, either. Brownies are an excellent place to start with coconut flour baking (and those who read this who are new to gluten free baking in general).
When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

I agree with love2travel that the recipe you've found looks like a lot of oil/eggs. Try this one from Tiana. It's similar to yours but notice how much less oil. http://www.tiana-coc...our_recipes.htm The recipes there work really well for me.
1/3 cup TIANA Organic Virgin Coconut Oil or butter, melted
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sifted TIANA Organic Coconut Flour
1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
In a saucepan at low heat, blend together butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and let cool. In a bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir in cocoa mixture. Whisk coconut flour into batter until there are no lumps. Fold in nuts. Pour batter into a greased 11x7x2 or 8x8x2 inch pan. Bake at 175C (350F) for 30-35 minutes.
