20 servings


  • 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.

      Hi Christine, Sucanat is just unrefined sugar. You could also use coconut sugar or just regular white granulated sugar if you prefer.

      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.

    I just received my order of All Purpose Einkorn Flour. I am excited to be able to have real bread at last!
    I can only use almond milk, egg whites, and either palm sugar, molasses, honey, or agave.
    Equal parts lemon juice and baking soda replace the amount of yeast called for in a recipe, and 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp vinegar (or lemon juice) to replace 1 tsp baking powder. What do you do if a recipe requires baking powder and yeast, baking soda with baking powder, as in this case, or yeast and baking soda?

      Hi Olive. I have never baked that way so I’m not really sure. It sounds like you would use 3/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp vinegar in this recipe based on what you have said. Let me know how it turns out. Thanks.

      Hi Diane, I’m sure there is a way, but I do not know how it would be done. Obviously it would affect the texture, but I’m sure there are recipes out there for brownies made with stevia.
