These brownies are not your standard fare. They do have that all that dense chocolate goodness you want out of a brownie, plus the blood orange oil, quinoa flour, yogurt, and ample dose of cinnamon make for a surprising and healthful bite. With ingredients like these, we could even eat brownies for breakfast. Yum!

INGREDIENTS - thank you Trish!

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (Trish suggests Valhrona, 100% cacao)
  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1.5 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon Cinnamon (or a 1/2 teaspoon standard cinnamon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/3 cup Stonehouse Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350.

Into a medium mixing bowl, sift dry cocoa, quinoa flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt - dry whisk to mix, set aside.

In a standing mixer, or using a hand mixer, blend the eggs together then add yogurt, blood orange oil, and vanilla and mix until combined. Slowly add dry ingredients into the mixing bowl. Continue to mix until well blended.

Wipe the insides of a 8x10 inch pan with a little bit of Blood Orange Oil. Pour the batter in and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
