Just Plain Wrong Brownies
This recipe is a mix of three different recipes I found on the Food Network site, and changed to be friendly. They are delicious and are well, just plain wrong. I suggest having many friends over after you make these, as you will want to eat them all.
6 oz unsalted butter – cut into 1 oz squares
3/4 cup flax seed meal
1 cup honey
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
5 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (2/3 cup)
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (1/4 cup)
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp boiling water
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Take some of the butter and lightly coat a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish
In one large bowl, mix together flax meal, salt, buckwheat flour and walnuts. Beat eggs in a separate large bowl.
Place chopped chocolate in a third glass or metal bowl over boiling water to melt. When chocolate is roughly half melted, add honey, cocoa powder, butter, and vanilla and continue to slowly stir until all of the chocolate is melted. Remove chocolate from heat and pour half into the beaten eggs while stirring the eggs to temper them. Once this is fully mixed, add the rest of the chocolate to the eggs and continue to stir until a smooth consistency. Pour the new chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Time is now important, as the flax will begin to soak up the wet ingredients, once the batter is fully mixed you want to have it in the oven within the next 5 minutes. Dissolve the baking soda in the 2 tbsp of boiling water and pour over the brownie batter. Quickly stir and spread out batter in the prepared baking dish. Bake about 25 minutes, just until brownies test moist but not wet (can be checked by placing a toothpick into the brownies, if it is clean, they are done). Cool completely before cutting. Cut into 24 brownies.
