Rose Chocolate Brownies

Rose Chocolate Brownies

Okay, as you know I don’t usually love stuff that’s too sweet, however, if we’re ever going to indulge, Valentine’s might be the day! I love the combo of rose and chocolate. My Rose Chocolate Brownies are delicate, decadent, and a treat that’s worth “falling off the wagon” for!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces dark baking chocolate (I love Lily’s Sweets)
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 eggs or egg replacer
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or Erythritol if you are diabetic)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 drops of rose pure essential oil (I love this one by Atelier)*
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup walnut pieces

*It is very important that you use a very pure essential oil for culinary purposes. The two that I have mentioned above are both good. If in doubt, leave this out. You could add 2 tsp Rosewater instead. Do not ingest any essential oils if pregnant.

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Grease a 12 x 8 baking pan (depending on how thick you want your brownie, you could go smaller)
  3. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small, heavy saucepan (or microwave). Once melted, leave to cool for a couple of minutes.
  4. Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Beat the eggs, or prepare egg replacer according to package directions.
  6. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
  7. Pour in the chocolate mixture and the eggs or egg replacer, and mix well until you have a smooth, shiny mixture.
  8. Mix in the vanilla extract and rose oil or rose water.
  9. Mix in the hemp seeds and walnuts.
  10. Place in the over for 25 – 28 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Allow the brownies to cool completely until you cut into squares.
  12. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Tip: Decorate with tiny dried rose buds, and serve with a cup of Rose Tea.
