Brownies with Golden Flax & Agave Nectar

Standard

My cravings kicked in and told me “brownies sound good” so the experiment got underway.  Every time I have ever seen a brownie recipe it is loaded with butter and sugar, so my goal was to change that, yet still make a good tasting brownie.  Hope you enjoy!

Brownies with Golden Flax & Agave Nectar

2 eggs

1/2 cup organic agave nectar

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup milled golden flaxseed

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

Mix all ingredients and place/spread in a 9×9 prepared baking pan.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 23-25 minutes, keep an eye on the brownies as you do not want them to over cook (burnt chocolate isn’t good).  Recipe makes 9 servings.
