Chewy Chocolate Brownies
May 2, 2009 Update:
I just made these
with Bob' Red Mill gluten-free Brown Rice Flour, and they came out great! They
don't have quite the consistency as when made with sprouted spelt (which is a
lower gluten wheat flour), but a great alternative.
Over the years, I have
made these brownies literally hundreds of times, slowly modifying the original recipe I
got off the back of a box of unsweetened chocolate square more than twenty years
ago to the one you see here. I make these brownies for events at my sons' schools and gatherings that need a little
sweetening up. They are always a favorite. You can double the recipe as I often
do and cook on
a half sheet or in a high-sided cookie sheet. After
cooling, I’d cut into twenty squares and sell them at my work to those who
needed a sweet break. They always sold out.
Strive to use the best
ingredients and you will be paid back with flavor, moistness and requests for
the recipe. I use real Irish butter, organic sugar or sometimes maple sugar,
free-range eggs with bright yellow yolks from a local farmer, sea salt instead
of table salt and sprouted spelt instead of white or wheat flour.
1 cup butter
6 oz. unsweetened baking
2½ cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. sea salt
1½ cups sprouted spelt
2 cups chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan. Cook over very low heat
until the chocolate and butter are melted. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Set
aside to cool for 10 minutes.
In a large mixer bowl,
beat sugar and eggs until light yellow and fluffy; add vanilla extract and salt.
Add in the chocolate/butter mixture and stir to incorporate. Gradually add the
sprouted spelt until incorporated. Stir in nuts with a big wooden spoon. Pour
into a greased 9x13-inch baking pan, or if doubling, into a parchment-lined half
sheet baking pan in which the sides have been greased.
For the 9x13-inch pan,
bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. For the half sheet,
bake 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Completely cool and
cut into squares.
