Notice the creamy, caramel drizzle over the paleo brownies? That is more of Best of the Bone gelatin. Because of the Celtic sea salt as a natural preservative and the richness of the marrow it actually complements the sweet of the brownie - but don't believe me believe the six and seven year olds who finished polished this off sooner than one should allow.
We used a slightly different recipe this time:
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup grass-fed butter (butter = a must in this)
- 1/2 cup organic cocoa powder
- 2 oz unsweetened (or 70%+ dark) organic chocolate
- 1/2 cup tea tree honey (we used our Herbal Doctors honey which is 4x more powerful that typical honey and 16+ TA but is raw, unprocessed and rich and creamy without being too sweet)
- 2 free range eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour (almond flour sounds good and will use in my next effort)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Best of the Bone bone broth gelatin (remember, it has sea salt in it so no need to add salt).
1. Preheat fan-forced oven to 165°C/325 Fahrenheit. Line and lightly grease an 20cm square baking tin with baking paper and set aside. 2. Combine coconut flour, cacao powder, bi-carb soda and Best of the Bone in a large bowl. 3. Cream together coconut oil, melted butter and honey in a small bowl until combined and smooth (you can use a spatula or an electric beater). Mix in maple syrup and vanilla extract. 4. Add the lightly whisked eggs to the flour mixture and stir though. Then add the two mixtures, fold through and mix well. Do not over mix. 5. Mix in the water. 6. Pour brownie mix into the prepared baking tin and spread it evenly. 7. Bake for 12-14 minutes in the preheated oven. 8. Remove and add organic dark chocolate to the top and place back in oven for one minute. 9. Remove from oven and let cool - drizzle BEST OF THE BONE broth gelatin concentrate over top.
Results/Benefits - a paleo (low GI) treat that has collagen protein from Best of the Bone and protein; healthy fats for fuel from the eggs, butter and Best of the Bone; tremendous mineral content from the Best of the Bone and the Tea Tree honey; immune-boosting properties from Best of the Bone and the Tea Tree Honey; gut healthy collagen/gelatin -- all from a brownie. The tea tree honey has an amazing nutritional profile.
Regular raw honey is already known for its tremendous nutritional and immune boosting abilities. Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of:
B vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid)
Zinc and of course
