Happy World Chocolate Day with Brownies Made with Cassava Flour!
It’s been awhile since we celebrated a food holiday here and today is one of my favorites. World Chocolate Day! I am a chocolate fiend. No joke! I have a 20×12 inch chocolate box that is 12 inches deep that has now been depleted because of this virus. All you have to do is give me chocolate and we are automatically BFF’s. It’s one of the souvenirs I pick up when I travel. Looking for locally made chocolate is a hobby of mine that I miss so much.
To celebrate I made one of my favorite snacks/desserts. The chocolate Brownie.
How to make Brownies Made with Cassava Flour
In this grain free version I use coconut sugar and cassava flour to make it a touch healthier. This is what you will need to make my Brownies Made with Cassava Flour.
- 1/2 Cup Vegan Butter
- 1 Cup Chopped Chocolate (I used a mix of Oodaalolly and Theo and Brom both made with cacao from the Philippines)
- 1 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Cocoa Powder (I used cocoa powder from Cacao de Davao)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Paste
- 2 Eggs
- 1/3 Cup Cassava Flour
First melt together the vegan butter and chopped chocolate over low heat. You don’t want the chocolate to burn so take it low and slow.
While the chocolate and butter are cooling mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Now pour in the chocolate mixture into the dry mixture.
Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix well.
Finally lightly fold in the cassava flour.
It should now look nice and lush and silky like this.
To bake line a 8×8 square inch pan with foil and spray with coconut oil. Pour in the batter and bake at 325 Degrees for 25 minutes.
Leave to cool completely in the pan, then lift it out and cut into 16 squares.
Celebrating Philippine Chocolate
As I mentioned earlier these brownies are made with 3 different varieties of Philippine chocolate.
The flavor profile of Philippine chocolate is so unique. To me it’s almost floral with hints of coffee. Much like wine the soil, climate, fermenting and roasting plays into the what you taste. I encourage you to try some. You can order these chocolates here in the US.
Probably only one of the good things from the current government is the investment they have made in this industry. There are so many chocolate brands coming out the the country and it makes me so proud.
I highly recommend watching this video from CNN Philippines about The Rise of Philippine Chocolate.
Enjoy these Brownies made with Cassava Flour. They are as decadent and dense as the real thing.
