Standard

When traveling through West Texas this old house kept calling me. Pulling me actually. I finally had to pull over and grab a shot so that I could keep a piece of her with me. #mylens

I live for off the road adventures and my latest trek was to Shiprock, New Mexico. I had heard that it was a must see place in the state so I’m thrilled to have seen this site.

Gluten-Free Pistachio Rosewater Brownies

Standard

Treat your loved ones to something a little extra special this Sunday, and completely guilt-free. The combination of rose water and pistachio creates an elegant twist on an indulgent classic.

INGREDIENTS

3 1/2 oz (100 g) organic, unsweetened dark chocolate (find out how to make the best choice here)
2 cups almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup crushed pistachios
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 eggs (or 1 tbsp ground chia + 1/4 warm water)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp rosewater
rose petals & crushed pistachios to decorate

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.
  3. Melt the chocolate over low heat or use a double boiler.
  4. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Combine all wet ingredients in your food processor or blender.
  6. Add the melted chocolate and combine until smooth- should be creamy, not too dry.
  7. Mix wet ingredients into the dry, and mix well.
  8. Pour batter into the pan, smooth it out with a spatula & bake it for about 25-30 minutes.
  9. Insert a toothpick in to make sure cooked through. They should be firm when you press down.
  10. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  11. Sprinkle with some extra crushed pistachios and rose petals, for an extra touch.
