Variations: I am not a big fan of nuts but i will occasionally use thinly sliced almonds, you can use walnuts also. You can also add 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or a few tablespoons of strong espresso to give it a little more chocolate goodness.
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup of ghee (or organic unsalted butter)
2/3 cup of agave sweetener
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 tablespoons of Mexican Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350įF degrees. Butter or spray (with non-stick spray) an 8 inch square pan.
In a large bowl, melt the chocolate and ghee together in the microwave or over a pan of hot water. Stir in the remaining ingredients, mixing thoroughly.
Transfer batter to baking pan and smooth over the top. Bake 20-30 minutes or until the top has a dull sheen. Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars. I cut them into little bites so I donít feel as bad eating the entire batch.
