Chia Espresso Brownies

Dark, rich and gooey, these decadent treats are loaded with flavor. The addition of chia means they’re also packed with fiber and protein, with a boost of powerful antioxidants from organic chocolate.

Chia Brownies

Ingredients

1 tablespoons chia seeds

½ cup water

4 ounces unsweetened organic chocolate (at least 70% cocoa), chopped

1 cup organic sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup all-purpose, unbleached flour

¼ teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder

Directions

Stir the water and chia seed together in a small bowl. Cover and let rest overnight.

The next day, melt chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350’ F. Line a baking pan with foil, leaving enough at the ends to fold over. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Whisk sugar into cooled chocolate. Add eggs, one at a time, and whisk just until blended. Add chia seed mixture and vanilla; stir to combine.

Combine flour, baking soda and espresso coffee powder in a small bowl. Add this mixture to the chocolate mixture; stir to blend. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly with a spoon or spatula. Bake 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting into squares.
