Ingredients

  • ¾ cup whole gain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • ½ cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted and cooled
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk plant-based or low-fat cows
  • 1 cup fresh pomegranate seeds

For the glaze

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate 80% or more cocoa refined sugar-free

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 356F (180C) degrees. Line the bottom of a 9x9 inch (22x22cm) square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and spices.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the eggs with honey. Add coconut oil, greek yogurt and milk.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 20 or until a toothpick can be inserted into the center and come out almost clean (you want it to be a little moist with batter).

  6. Remove pan from the oven. Allow the brownies to cool completely on room temperature.
  7. Melt the dark chocolate.

  8. Top the brownies with chocolate glaze and fresh pomegranate seeds. 

Recipe Notes

Brownies will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. As a measure I used UScup (240ml).
