Hope everyone had a great weekend--I definitely did.  We got a ton of stuff done around the house and spent plenty of time relaxing.  I even got to bake a little bit!  The recipe for these Fudgy Chocolate Brownies comes courtesy of Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, "My Father's Daughter."  We took these to a cookout at a friend's house and they were a big hit.  I recommend you make them.  Now.


2 cups white spelt flour (preferably King Arthur)
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown rice syrup (or light agave nectar)
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup soy milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided


Heat oven to 350°. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Whisk maple syrup, oil, brown rice syrup, coffee, soymilk and vanilla in another bowl. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Pour half the batter into a greased 9" x 11" baking dish; top with half the chips. Pour remaining batter into dish and top with remaining chips. Bake until knife comes out with crumbs adhering to it, 30 minutes. Let cool.

A whole cup of cocoa? And coffee? Sounds like a winner to me. And I can always use leftover spelt flour in breads or multigrain pancakes.
