Recipe by Charissa & Co.
Strawberry brownies, that are not only a dessert, but gluten-free + refined sugar free. Therefore, making it a versatile option for most.
- Start first by heating your oven, these brownies will bake at 180C for around 40min. The size of the baking tray depends on the thickness of the brownies, using a 8inch x 4 inch is ideal.
- Next step as we are not using eggs, you need to add the chia meal or flaxseed meal to the water, stir + set aside for 13min to thicken.
- Once it has set, you can start adding the wet ingredients to the dry.
- I did not add the chocolate chips, but it is optional, if you prefer more chocolate to your brownie you can do so.
- The strawberries I mixed into the actual base. After the brownies have baked, I sliced some additional fresh strawberries on top and drizzled with raw melted cacao.
