Ingredients for chili brownies
230 g of cooking chocolate
100 g butter
4 room temperature eggs
4 tablespoons of honey
1-1 / 4 cups of flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
1 leveled teaspoon of chili powder
half a teaspoon of baking soda
three handfuls of crushed walnuts
a pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180 oC. Cut the chocolate and butter into pieces. Melt them in a pot over low heat, stirring all the time. When melted, remove from the heat and stir in the honey, then leave to cool for a bit. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl (flour, cocoa, chili, baking soda, cinnamon, salt). Into the melted chocolate add one egg at a time, stirring after each one. The chocolate mustn’t be too hot or the egg will boil. Next, add spoonfuls of the dry ingredients mixture and stir until smooth. And finally add the walnuts. Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 30 – 40 minutes.
Best served with ice cream.
Chili brownies, in addition to being delicious, are also healthy. Both chili and cocoa reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Chili is rich in vitamin B6 as well as vitamin C, which is a very important antioxidant for boosting your immunity. It also contains beta carotene, which our body converts into vitamin A. Cocoa, believe it or not, can have a positive effect on your mood, because it helps with blood circulation to the brain! If you dare to make them – chili brownies are no mistake.
