1/2 cup flour (gluten-free works too) 6 tablespoons roasted carob powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup cane sugar 1/2 cup coconut oil (or unsalted butter) 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Optional: 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (to sprinkle on baked and cooled brownies)
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 for a metal pan or 325 for a glass baking dish. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. 2. Place flour, salt and carob in a bowl and whisk to thoroughly combine. Set aside. 3. In another large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar. Use an electric beater or stand mixer to cream the mixture until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. 4. Add dry ingredients and nuts (optional). Beat just until wet and dry ingredients are combined. Scrape brownie mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake in a metal pan for about 25 minutes (bake in a glass pan for about 35 minutes). 5. Watch cooking times carefully. When a toothpick inserted into the center of the baking dish comes out clean, the brownies are done. 6. Cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting. When cooled sprinkle with powdered sugar (optional).
