My Yummy Honey Brownies

Share this merde!

Around the beginning of the year, I suddenly decided that I should try to reduce the refined sugar in my diet. (Last year it was that I should cut off all of my hair – I think that my family prefers this new change!)

One of the things I’ve been doing is using more raw, unrefined honey.

So the other day I was jonesing for some brownies, and suddenly honey brownies sounded really awesome!

So I made some, and they turned out really well, if I do say so myself! In fact, after making these, I created a gluten free honey brownie version, which also turned out well (both versions rated two thumbs up from everyone who tasted them, including children!)

Here they are:

Yummy Honey Brownies

1 cup organic butter
2 scant cups raw, unfiltered honey
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup organic cocoa powder
1 cup organic flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
small pinch baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13x9x2 baking pan.

Melt the butter in the microwave in a large bowl (I use a Pyrex two-quart measuring bowl, which is ideal for this recipe!) Stir in the honey and vanilla, and then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the cocoa, then the baking powder, salt, and pinch of baking soda. Beat in the flour until nearly smooth.

Pour into pan, and bake for 30 minutes, or until sides of brownies just start to pull away from the pan.

  1. Yikes, they sound yummy! BTW, have you tried raw organic agave nectar? It’s low glycemic index, and I started keeping it around since you took us to that amazing organic/raw vegan restaurant in Santa Cruz. I have a total sweet tooth, and I use it daily in my green tea…

  2. Hey these are AWESOME! I added one square of unsweetened chocolate to the butter as I melted it, and cut back the honey a little,as I am a huge dark chocolate fan – turned out great, strong chocolate flavor, moist and cakey.
