Flourless Fudge Brownies #SundaySupper

Flourless Fudge Brownies

It’s the unofficial start of summer and it feels every bit of it with warm temperatures, flowers in bloom, the air conditioner running, and bugs.  Lots and lots of bugs.

The first nice day every year, they emerge.  I’m bug-phobic and run and squeal whenever I see one outside and inside it’s even worse.

We’re used to spiders.  Every spring or summer, there is one day when we kill ants in the house (lots of ant, double digit numbers of ants), we put cloves around the doors and windows (it works), and then they leave and stay away (knock on wood).  Flies are common.  Too common, swooping and zooming and scaring the life out of me.

Stinging insects are far less common (again, knock on wood), but the other day, it happened.  You guys, it happened.

Mom had just gotten off the elliptical and I was in the den innocently buying Katy Perry tickets (so excited!), when Mom said, is that a bee?  She didn’t really mean bee and it wasn’t a bee, but all those stinging insects, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, are one in the same in our house.

Sure enough it was a “bee.”  I did what any reasonable person would do.  I shut the door to the den and let Mom deal with it, shouting ideas at her at how to dispose of the insect.

We … well she … ended up using a light bulb changing tool to smash it on the window until it was dead.  And we all lived happily ever after … except the bee.  Him, not so much.

Flourless Fudge Brownies

Other than having a bee free house, Flourless Fudge Brownies are a must.  You’re thinking these don’t taste anything at all like regular brownies since they use almond meal instead of all-purpose flour.

But you are so wrong.  These might be the best brownies I’ve ever had, period.  They have that crackly top crust with a gooey, fudgy, supremely rich interior, and they don’t taste a think like coconut.  These are the ultimate brownies and because they are so easy to make and gluten free, you really need to make them asap.

Flourless Fudge Brownies #SundaySupper

Yield: 9 brownies

Ingredients

1 cup dark chocolate or carob chips
½ cup coconut oil
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
½ cup carob or cocoa powder
½ cup almond meal
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch square pan with coconut oil.
  2. In a medium, microwave safe bowl, place the chip and coconut oil. Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted. Stir in the sugar and allow to cool for a couple minutes.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, making sure to fully incorporate each. Stir in the carob or cocoa powder, almond meal, and vanilla until a uniform batter comes together. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake 35-40 minutes until the top is crackly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving. Brownies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or individually frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the microwave 30 second – 1 minute.

Wind Blown #FashionFriday

Wind Blown #FashionFriday

It seems like it’s always windy here.  In the winter, that’s pretty unbearable, but in the summer, it brings those beach vibes with a warm breeze and kind of makes me never want to go inside … until my hair gets stuck in my lipstick. When it’s so super windy, it’s important not to wear […]

Sunday we saw our first opera, Cyrano, at the Detroit Opera House.  It was fabulous!  The sets were so intricate along with the costumes, and the performers sang like I’ve never heard before.  The story is a sad classic, and even though it was in Italian, I was riveted from start to finish.  It was […]

On Grey’s Anatomy this week (which was an amazing episode) Meredith, in her signature voice over, said no one waits for their world to explode, their life to change.  But that’s never been true for me. Since I can remember, I have been waiting for my world to explode, in ways both good and bad. […]

A couple weekends ago, we were scheduled to return to Books on the Lake in Grosse Pointe.  Mom and I attended last year in hopes of connecting with some authors and were reasonably successful, even if I don’t really have anything to show for it yet. But it had been a yucky, rainy week and […]
