A healthy and delicious brownie recipe using all-purpose or whole grain einkorn flour. Make them fudgy or cakey, but definitely chocolatey!
- 1/2 cup Butter Melted
- 2 cups Sucanat
- 2-3 Eggs Room Temperature
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla
- 1/4 cup Cacao Powder Or Cocoa Powder
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 1/4 cups Einkorn Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Pecans Optional
1. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla only until incorporated. Overmixing brownies causes them to fall in the middle. Whether you use two or three eggs depends on how you prefer your brownies. Two if you want them more fudgy. Three if you want them more cakey.
2. Add cacao powder (Or cocoa powder), coconut flour, and salt. Mix.
3. Add einkorn flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
4. Mix while slowly adding milk.
5. Add nuts and mix.
6. Pour into a greased 9×13 glass pan (The glass is important for the bake time).
7. Bake at 350ºF for 35-40 minutes. Fork may or may not come out completely clean. Just make sure the middle doesn’t jiggle.
I made this recipe with fresh ground einkorn and it seemed like it should have had more flour. Do you have any suggestions how much to use when using fresh ground einkorn?
Had great taste!
Hi Ruth, we always use freshly milled whole grain flour unless specified. There are many other factors that affect how much flour goes into a recipe. This is what worked for our location. Yours may differ a little. That’s why we always recommend watching consistently instead of being married to one amount. If you feel it needed more flour, it’s definitely ok to add more. Let me know if you have more questions.
Will these brownies still be good if almond or coconut milk is used instead of dairy milk?
i.e. does diary milk cause some type of chemical reaction needed that the non-dairy milks don’t?
Hi Markle, it should be fine. I usually use almond milk. The coconut milk has a stronger flavor and may alter the taste a bit.
What is sucanat?
Hi Christine, Sucanat is just unrefined sugar. You could also use coconut sugar or just regular white granulated sugar if you prefer.
Hello, What purpose does the coconut flour serve, can I omit it?
Hi Christina, you can omit it. Einkorn is a wetter grain and doesn’t absorb as much liquid as wheat flour. Coconut flour is very absorbent, so we add a little for that purpose, but you can leave it out if you’d rather.
