I know I talk a lot about coffee in brownies and cakes. A real lot. I waffle particularly profusely in the post for my Almost Tiramisu cake, if aren’t already familiar with my views.
I know coffee and chocolate don’t mix for some people. But mocha? Mocha sounds exotic, don’t you think? So when you add mocha to the title of your brownies it makes them sound adventurous, bohemian, romantic.
And even better, some people don’t know what mocha is, anyway. This means you could present these to your coffee-in-cakes-should-be-banned friends with a clear conscience. Hah! I am joking, of course.
Do you know what? Regardless whether these have coffee or not, they are good. They are so good they don’t need butter or oil. Not a drop. The only fat in these beauties comes from the dark chocolate, which is minimal.
They are also gluten free and made with teff, coconut and brown rice flour. Oh, and they have no refined sugar, either. I know. I know.
I’ve started using teff a lot in my baking. If you don’t know a great deal about it, have a read of what The Teff Company has to say and give it a go.
The ingredients below make around 15 brownie squares.
