So, let’s dive in and learn how to make the best brownies you’ve ever tasted!

What is einkorn?

The best part about these brownies is that they are made from einkorn flour. Einkorn flour is an ancient grain that dates back to over 10,000 years ago, making it one of the earliest cultivated grains in human history. It is a type of wheat that is low in gluten and has a unique nutritional profile compared to modern wheat varieties. The benefits of einkorn flour include its high protein content, which can help in muscle development and repair, and its rich source of essential nutrients such as vitamin B, iron, and fiber. Additionally, einkorn flour is easier to digest for some individuals who have gluten sensitivities, as it contains less gluten than modern wheat varieties. The lower gluten content also contributes to a lighter and more delicate texture in baked goods.

RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (75g) all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 1/3 cup (40) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil (butter, avocado oil, etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 8×8-inch (20×20-cm) baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal.
  2. In a small pot, melt the butter over the stove on low until fully melted. Be careful not to overheat the butter, as it can scorch easily. If you opt for liquid oil, like avocado oil as I often do, then this step isn’t necessary.
  3. In a bowl, mix the granulated sugar, einkorn flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking powder. Stir well to combine, ensuring that there are no lumps of cocoa powder or flour remaining.
  4. In another bowl, add the vanilla extract, eggs, and butter together.
  5. When the oven is pre-heated, mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. The batter may seem a little thick, but that’s alright! Pour into your prepared baking pan using a spatula to spread it evenly and smooth out the top. and put immediately in the oven.
  6. Bake the brownies in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Be careful not to overbake the brownies, as they will continue to cook and firm up as they cool. The edges should be set, with the center still slightly soft and fudgy.
  7. Remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes, but I like to give it the full 2 hours. This step is crucial, as it allows the brownies to set and develop their signature fudgy texture.
  8. Once cooled, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the brownies out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to slice the brownies into squares, wiping the blade clean between cuts to ensure clean, even slices.
  9. Serve the brownies warm or at room temperature, with a dusting of powdered sugar or a scoop of your favorite ice cream, if desired. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. But who am I kidding? These won’t even last that long.

Tips and Variations:

  • For a richer, more decadent brownie, substitute 1/2 cup (65g) of the all-purpose einkorn flour with an equal amount of unsweetened cocoa powder. This will increase the chocolate flavor and create an even fudgier texture.
  • To add a touch of nuttiness to your brownies, fold in 1 cup (100g) of chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, or hazelnuts, along with the chocolate chips.
  • To create a decorative, marbled effect, swirl in 1/4 cup (60ml) of your favorite jam, caramel sauce, or peanut butter before baking.
