For Choctoberfest, I also received some products to try from Barlean’s. These were complimentary, but all opinions are my own.
One of the products they sent was Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is a great substitute for butter in baking, and butter flavored coconut oil is especially fantastic. Using it is a fantastic way to whip up dairy-free baked goods, like these brownies.
They’re chewy and fudgy and exactly what you want out of a brownie.
Coconut Oil Brownies
(from Pinch of Yum)
Makes 1 9×9″ pan
3/4 cup butter flavored coconut oil
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil and chocolate together. Once totally melted and combined, remove from heat and whisk in the brown sugar. Whisk in the eggs, until the batter thickens. Stir in the salt and flour until just combined.
Pour into a 9×9″ baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. There may be some oil remaining on the top or sides – it will be absorbed as the brownies cool. Let cool overnight before slicing.
