Flourless Chocolate Brownies

So it has been a fairly hectic week around here as I was preparing to finish up my last job.

I had my first day at home and I am no trying to embrace domestic bliss!

It is different than I am used to but it will be nice for a while.

My Paleo lifestyle will have to be tweaked to suit my unemployment status, so I am a long way of being able to afford organic. Maybe some day.

Anyway myself and my son are bored this evening as its been raining ALL day so we decided to get in some baking. As my son is Diabetic Paleo friendly treats also suit him which is great. It is great but very rich recipe for brownies so we served Avocado Chocolate Mousse with ours to make it seem lighter. You need to be a true chocoholic (and not sweet made) for this one.

For the Brownies we used:

170grams of 70 % Cocoa Chocolate
220 grams Kerrygold Butter
1/2 cup of honey
5 egg yokes
1/2 cup of cocoa
2 tbs Vanilla extract (or mint)

Preheat the oven to 190C
Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over hot water until smooth
Add the honey and vanilla and stir.

Add beaten eggs yokes to the mixture gradually and whisk until well mixed
Add the cocoa powder gradually until well mixed
Stir batter into a greased tin and bake for about 25 - 30 minutes until cooked through
Cool in tin for a few minutes and then remove and serve arm with Avocado mousse

1 x Avocado
1 tbs cocoa powder
1 tbs honey

Blend with a handheld blender until smooth.
Check taste and add more honey or cocoa if required.
This tastes lovely and doesnt taste at all like avocado!
