These soft, fudgy Einkorn brownies are everything a perfect brownie should be: rich, decadent, and extra-chocolatey!
As I write this, many of us around the world are in various states of social isolation, doing our best to "flatten the curve" and protect as many lives as possible. If you're anything like me, you may also be limiting your sugar intake more than usual, trying to keep your family's immune systems as robust as possible.
BUT - there's also something about being home and having extra time as a family, that just calls for baking something, isn't there?
We decided that during this time of being extra intentional about our health, we'll limit ourselves to one really special treat on the weekends. And this weekend, our whole family is unanimous: that treat needs to be our most-favorite-ever brownies.
These are a true chocolate-lovers brownie. I find that when it comes to brownies, people tend to fall into one of two camps: those who like their brownies to resemble chocolate cake, and those who think a brownie should be Fudge's twin cousin. If you fall into the latter camp, this recipe is for you.
The addition of dark chocolate chips makes them a little extra special, and you may notice that these call for less sugar than most brownie recipes. That really allows the depth of the chocolate flavor to stand out, and not just be overwhelmed in a wave of sweetness.
This is one of those recipes where it's worth splurging on really good cocoa powder, since the character of the cocoa can really shine through. (This is my favorite cocoa power, but I find that it's much cheaper to buy from my grocery store!)
I always bake with organic Einkorn flour, and that's what the recipe calls for, but if you don't have Einkorn, you can simply substitute with any good all-purpose flour. They'll come out just fine!
I hope your family enjoys these easy fudgy brownies as much as we do!
