Cointreau Brownie Pudding


“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

Who does not love chocolate? Well putting the few rare personalities aside EVERYONE loves some choco now and then… or maybee… daily?! Why not. 

This version is a bit different to the “classic” brownie recipe as it has no butter, no dairy and no flour. WHAT?!

What you will find in this recipe is almond milk, some olive oil and ground almonds as substitutes for the above mentioned.

As no flour is used the whole brownie is much softer and moist than regular brownies. Therefore, it is similar to a brownie pudding. It has this amazing crunchy surface and is very creamy and soft from the inside.  

A little secret ingredient I have added is some cointreau  🙂 I am a big fan of orange – choco combinations

    1. Yes Audrey I can imagine that it is a bit harder to get the crunchy top when no sugar is used. If you like the orange and chocolate combination you could cover the orange peel with sugar free dark chocolate. We do this here around Christmas time 🙂
