Could this be the best brownie recipe ever? I think so … and I mean out of all the brownie recipes, not just the healthy ones! Crunchy on the outside, soft and gooey in the middle. Oh yes please!

 

 

Ingredients

  • 250g unsalted grass fed butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dark choc chips (72% or more)
  • Stevia to taste
  • OPTIONAL 1/4 cup rice malt syrup (leave out for a lower carb count)
  • 2 heaped Tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • A few shakes of Himalayan rock salt (pink salt)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • OPTIONAL About 15 macadamias ‘smashed’ (I put them in a ziplock and hit them (gently) with a rolling pin!)
  • Desiccated coconut for serving (optional)

 

Traditional Method

  1. Preheat oven or air fryer to a moderate 160C.
  2. Heat a medium sized saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Melt butter and chocolate in saucepan, and add rice malt syrup if using and stevia.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in cacao and vanilla.
  5. Add eggs and stir well.
  6. Add almond meal and baking powder and mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.
  7. Gently fold macadamias through mixture.
  8. Pour into a baking tray lined with baking paper (the bigger it is, the thinner your brownies will be)
  9. Bake in oven or air fryer for about 25 minutes until done.
  10. Let sit before slicing (this is easier if left in the fridge overnight)

Thermomix Method

  1. Preheat oven or air fryer to a moderate 160C.
  2. In Thermomix bowl, add butter, chocolate chips and rice malt syrup (if using) and melt for about 4 minutes/60C/speed 2.
  3. Check, and melt for a little longer if necessary.
  4. Remove MC and add cacao and vanilla through the hole in the lid while stirring gently.
  5. Continue mixing gently while you add the eggs through the hole.
  6. Add almond meal and baking powder also through hole in lid.
  7. Increase slowly to speed 5 for about 4 seconds.
  8. Reduce to gentle/stir, add macadamias and stir until combined.
  9. Pour into a baking tray lined with baking paper (the bigger it is, the thinner your brownies will be). I use the baking tray accessory for the Philips XXL air fryer.
  10. Bake in oven or air fryer for about 25 minutes until done.
  11. Let sit before slicing (this is easier if left in the fridge overnight)
