This last week has been a whirl wind of wonderful (big fan of alliteration), my growing business, Welli Desserts is still growing, yay! The community I live in is so amazing, everyone wants to help each other grow their businesses and are eager to help however they can. If you’ve never been to Orlando, or all you’ve seen are the theme parks, you have to experience the real culture of the city.
Our Orlando City Soccer team actually has the second largest crowd for any MLS soccer team… not too shabby. And the new Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center always has phenomenal shows (Phantom of the Opera and Beauty & The Beast were magical). We have it all, the arts, sports, and delicious food. The food here, in the words of Willy Wonka, is scrumdiddlyumptious!
And speaking of scrumdiddlyumptious, I made some of these fantastic Amaretto Brownie Bites and I wanted to share the recipe with you. These brownie bites first made an appearance at my birthday party. The big Three-O! woot woot!… Then, a batch of these brownies made their way to an awesome benefit. Finally, more of these brownies made their way to our coffee table. My handsome hubby and I devoured the newest batch while enjoying some late night Family Feud. (Steve Harvey is entertaining!). Anyway, rave reviews meant this recipe was a must share, so here ya go, I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Amaretto Brownie Bites
v,gf (*grain free)
- 1c Sorghum flour* (for a grain free option, use hemp flour)
- 1/2c Carob powder (sub cacao)
- 1/4c arrowroot starch
- 1/4c coconut flour
- 1t baking powder
- 1t baking soda
- 1 flax egg (1T flax meal +3T water; stir and let sit 5 min to gel)
- 1/4c Amaretto (sub your choice milk)
- 1/2c + 2T applesauce
- 1/2c maple syrup
- 1/2c hot coffee
- 1 batch of Cake Frosting
- add 1 shot+ amaretto
- Mix the two together and enjoy
Preheat the oven to 350 F and lightly grease your bite-sized brownie pan (I used this one). [You can also use a 9×9 pan, just bake the brownies about 30 minutes]. Now, sift together all of your dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients finishing lastly with the hot coffee. Mix all of your ingredients well, the batter should not be too runny.
Pour batter into your bite-sized pan and bake 11 minutes. Again, if you’re using a larger pan, you will need to bake about 20 minutes longer… but who has that kind of patience? Finally, when the oven timer buzzes, take out these delicious bite-sized gems of goodness and let cool for a few minutes before delighting in that awesomeness.
