Read on How I made these delicious Brownies!

Recipe: For 14 to 16 smaller brownies


** The dry ingredients:

1/2 cup organic white flour

1/2 cup organic white spelt flour

1 cup powdered coconut sugar + 1 tablespoon

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup of fresh frozen cranberries, each berry chopped into 2 / ย (I used fresh cranberry bags, that I froze in my freezer & didn’t defrost the cranberries )

2/4 cup carob powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

** The wet ingredients:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sunflower oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preaheat your oven to 175ยฐ C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Otherwise, adjust your oven to the right temperature.

2. In a large bowl, add spelt ย & white flour, sugar, carob powder, baking powder, cinnamon & baking soda. Add chopped cranberries. Mix everything well with a spoon.

3. In another bowl, add vegetable oil, vanilla extract & water. Whisk away. Then, pour the wet ingredients to the dry ones & mix with a large spoon until just joined. Pour the mix into a non-stick baking pan or a square baking pan that has beenย lined with baking paper, size 20 cm x 21 cm, depth: 5 cm. Spread the mix evenly out. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until the centers are set or the tops aren’t shiny anymore. Take out of the oven & let the brownies cool in the pan for another 15 minutes before slicing. Leave them rest for another 10 minutes before enjoying some of them. Enjoy every bite of them! This is greatly paired with a good organic not so sweet cranberry tea! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    wow–those look dense:-) Yum.

  2. Sounds absolutely delicious! I have never seen coconut butter though..

  3. Ooh, gooey chocolate..yum! Coconut sugar products are great. We already love anything with coconuts and were amazed when we even found coconut flour and sugar.

  4. Bashar A. says:

    That really does look delicious Sophie ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Saskia (1=2) says:

    Yum Sophie. Looks like this would be great for dessert too. Love the crackly top.

    sounds delicious, and cranberries are not just for Christmas!

    • Sophie33 says:

  7. these look so rich and flavorful!! I can’t resist a brownie! thanks Sophie.

  8. Wow Sophie, this looks dangerous ๐Ÿ™‚ YUM!!

    • Sophie33 says:

      And not so bad for the health too. I used a combo of light organic spelt flour & white organic white flour & used coconut sugar instead of beet sugar. I didn’t use any butter!

  9. These look gooey an tasty and wonderful! Yum!

  10. liveblissful says:

  12. Sophie, they look SO rich! Wow!

  13. hotlyspiced says:

    These look so moist and delicious. How much carob powder do you use? Is it 1/2 a cup or 2/4 of a cup (which would be one and the same???) xx

  14. Ina Gawne says:

    Looks yummy Sophie! I like the the combination of cranberry in this dessert – yum!

  15. lovely!!! send me one of ’em ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Koko says:

    Mmmm, these look decadent and fudgy! I haven’t used carob extensively, and have yet to try them in a brownie like dessert. I think I’m missing out!! Looks great Sophie!

    • Sophie33 says:

      yes, you should! I like craob instead of cacao in desserts & in smoothies too. I don’t like it to substitute cacao in hot almond milk though!

  17. these sound AWESOM!!!

  18. Somer says:

    Those look fabulously ooey gooey! I love carob!

  19. Oh wow, those look like pure gooey fudge goodness! Sort of like a mash-up of a brownie and a lava cake- What could be better? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. katrina berg says:

    perfect pre-valentine’s treat! xo

  21. Cannot believe how fudgy and beautiful these look ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. ziabaki says:

    Wow, they look perfect! Yummy!

  27. Oh these look so good, I want one NOW!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never tried a recipe using coconut sugar but I think you have just inspired me to try!

  28. Oh my goodness, those look to die for. That texture and color is absolutely sinful! I haven’t tried baking with carob yet, but by the looks of this I need to soon!

  29. Tandy says:

    These sound divine. I love cranberries ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Nic says:

    Lovely ooey gooey brownies, just as they should be with added deliciousness!

  37. Jeff Peters says:

    Wow these look awesome. Too bad I see them now when I start my no-junkfood-for-a-month pledge. Counting down the days!

  38. laurasmess says:

    Oh my gosh. These look so unbelievably moist!!! Love the addition of cranberries… such a delicious tang (I’m putting them in everything these days, including salads… made a delicious broccoli salad tonight with cranberries and walnuts!). Definitely trying this recipe, yum!

  39. Hi, I was just checking out this recipe and it looks amazing- you have 2/4 cup carob powder, did you mean 1/2 cup? or 1/4 cup? Thanks!

    • Sophie33 says:

      I used 2 times 1/4 cup of carob powder. I began with 1/4 cup & then added 1/4 cup extra for more carob flavour so I guess this means 1/2 cup in total. I am new to using cups, so I am experimenting. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Ok great, thanks! It’s so funny when people say they’re new to using cups because to me, that’s all I know! I feel the same way with the metric system- getting used to it ๐Ÿ™‚
