If you are a fan of a dark chocolate you will probably adore these brownies.
I am more on the milk chocolate side though, but I felt like dark chocolate one day (you know...there are some days when you know particularly what you want. Precisely. Like: Celery and Hummus today! Or a Brie day!).
So few days ago was a dark bitter chocolate day.
I found the ingredients pretty cool: no white flour, sugar, 5 eggs though...(but you can substitute some with egg whites, as it says in the comments), and no chocolate (good quality unsweetened cacao powder instead)
The texture and consistency of this brownies was rich, like a cake, moisturized enough, not wet as the original source claims. Very-very-very dark chocolate flavour with the little walnut bits.
I used the honey as a sweetener instead of maple syrup. I also tend to add half less than it says in the recipe. So I ended up with really not sweet, but bitter chocolate taste. And it wasn't bad at all!
Unlike my husband's statement, which is: "All desserts should be sweet". I think my lovely husband just can't accept the fact that his wife is a genius in the kitchen (hahaha) and creates something genuinely new (or dumb).
So to make sure I am right, I brought my brownies to work, to ask for my boss's opinion and (not surprisingly at all) he fully agreed with me regarding the nice and rich taste of this dessert.
For the topping I used chilled nonfat Greek yogurt, which I gently mixed with vanilla. And fresh berries on top.
After you refrigerate brownies, the whole thing becomes even better!
This is the gluten-free, sugar-free recipe click here. I didn't make a lot of changes (just added crushed walnuts), so please reference to the recipe in the original source.
I REALLY hope you enjoy these brownies! But make sure that you make them on you Dark Chocolate Day! :-)
