Kids love brownies. Flax seeds are great for kids. What better way to get kids to eat flax, than to add them to brownies?
Hey, hey, hey….these are not your regular ‘sneak-in-flax somehow’ brownies. In this recipe, flax stands tall, bold and hold its own among the 3 ingredients. The flax gets baked into a delightful, fudgy texture. Trust me, this recipe will be a hit!!
Just 3 ingredients make this happen:
- Flax Powder
- (4th optional): Chocolate Chips!!
By the way, fun fact – did you know the person who invented Nutella, Pietro Ferrero, ended up becoming a billionaire and the richest person in Italy? Ever craved for a spoon of Nutella after a meal? You know what I am talking about…. the concentration of chocolate + fat + sugar in a spoon is irresistible and guess what – billions of jars later – this is proof that a lot of people in the world feel the same way….
This recipe is so simple and super easy to remember..
This brownie is made with flax, it is gluten free, super fudgy and made with just 3 ingredients. Yummy and healthy!!
- 1 cup Flax Powder
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips (Optional)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix the 3 ingredients manually or in a food processor.
Pour batter into a buttered 8×6 in pan. Optional, add chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 25 minutes
Take it out and cool for about 5 minutes. Serve!!
So this Fudgy Flax Brownie is just 3-ingredients!! gluten free!! healthy from the flax!! and so easy to make!! It is an egg free recipe which is great for a lot of Indians who avoid eggs. Plus there is no hassle of breaking and whipping eggs.
Here’s the deal. There are some really good nutritional ingredients that are super hard to integrate into regular food – like for e.g. – blackstrap molasses, rye, fenugreek seeds (my latest health obsession – working on post on this) etc.
But flax is unlike the others. Yes, there are cons – it has a grassy taste and its texture is a little coarse, no matter how much you grind it. But here’s the beauty – Flax pairs beautifully with chocolate. And, it has fat – lots of good fat. So, you can really work it to your advantage.
So give flax a chance. Give this easy brownie a chance. You will not regret it. Share this post with your friends on social media. And I hope to see you soon in my next post!!
