We’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts! Okay, so not exactly. But we do have a lovely bunch of Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Coconut Palm Sugar to give away for a dang sweet end to our New Year New Rear Week of special content.
In fact, we’re giving out a basket of this Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, which is about the best sugar around. Besides being fair trade and organic, it’s totally non-GMO verified, gluten-free, kosher—and did we mention delicious? This stuff is great for all of your sweet needs and is a rich, unrefined brown sugar with a deep caramel flavor. For example, it’s simply fabulous in the below gluten-free brownie recipe!
Gluten-Free Sweet and Salty Brownies Recipe
1¼ c good-quality semisweet chocolate chips
1 c softened unsalted butter
4 large eggs
1 c Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Coconut Palm Sugar
6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp kosher or fine sea salt
1 tbsp instant espresso powder
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1½ c salted, dry roasted peanuts, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a 9-inch-by-12-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
2. Put the chocolate chips and butter in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to roughly combine. Add the eggs, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, salt, espresso powder and vanilla and blitz until combined; batter is supposed to be lumpy. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top and gently press into the batter.
3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the batter is set and feels slightly firm to the touch. The outer edges will be a little drier than the inside. Cut into squares and enjoy!
