Chia & Cacao Chocolate Chip Brownies

I’ve never been a fan of baking mixes. I’ve always thought it was way funnier to bake yourself – and I’ve always hated thinking about all the crappy stuff that’s in most baking mixes. That is until I received a package from Creative Nature Superfoods the other week. This amazing little company has just launched two new products: A superfood Chia and Cacao Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix and a Chia and Mulberry Muffin mix. Both allergen free (free from gluten, soy, dairy etc.), refined sugar free and packed with goodies such as chia seeds, cocoa nibs and mulberries.

Jeg har aldrig været en fan af bageblandinger. For mig har det altid været sjovere at bage hele kagen fra bunden – og så kan jeg bestemt ikke lide alle de dårlige ingredienser, der tit er i færdigblandinger som konserveringsmidler, E-numre og ultra hvidt sukker. Men det ændrede en lille pakke, jeg fik ind af døren på for en uges tid siden. Det lille firma Creative Nature Superfood sendte mig nemlig en af deres nye bageblandinger. De har lige lancheret to: En Chia og Kakao Chocolate Chip Brownie (som jeg var så heldig at få fingrene i) og en Multebær Muffin Mix. Begge allergen-frie, fire for raffineret sukker og spækket med superfoods som chia frø, kakao nips og multebær.

So the bad-stuff-problem was solved and I decided to give it a try. I have to admit it was very convenient to bake with a mix. It’s okay to be a little lazy sometimes, right? With both my baking-mix-issues gone there was only one thing left: Was the brownie as good as a homemade one?

Oh. My. God. YES!

I mean, look at that gooey, dark piece of chocolate heaven up there. Admittedly, when I looked at the batter I wasn’t convinced. The batter is quite light and this girl likes her brownies to be darker than black. But when the brownies had cooled down they were insanely dark and SO delicious. I loved it – and my friends with whom I shared it loved it too.

Så mit ”grimme-ingredienser-problem” var løst og jeg besluttede mig for at prøve det. Indrømmet – hold op, hvor er det nemt med sådan et bage mix. Nogen gange er det ok at være lidt doven. Med begge mine færdigblanding-issues væl, var der kun en ting tilbage – om brownies’ne så virkelig var god.

Og oh my god, JA!

Bare tag et kig på de bløde, mørke browniestykker. Da jeg så dejen var jeg ellers ikke overbevist. Den var meget lys, og jeg vil kun spise brownies, der er mørkere end sort. Men da kagen var kølet ned var den pludselig helt mørk og smagte himmelsk.

MY TIPS

– There are two recipes on the package – one vegan and one non-vegan. I went for the non-vegan, but thought there was a little too much butter. So I swabbed half for coconut oil and it worked just fine.

– I recommend not baking the brownies more than 20 minutes if you like them soft and gooey. Mine were a little dry in the edges (which meant I only ate the middle leaving the crust, which I later put in a chocolate ice cream – hehe).

ET PAR TIPS

– Der er to opskrifter på pakken – en vegansk og en ikke-vegansk. Jeg ville lave den ikke-veganske, men endte med at blande de to, da jeg alligevel syntes der var liiiiidt meget smør. Så jeg byttede halvdelen ud med kokosolie, og det fungerede bare fint.

– Hvis du – som mig – bedst kan lide at browniesn’e er meget bløde (helst slet ikke bagt), så bag dem ikke mere end 20 min. Min kant blev lidt tøt (så jeg spiste midten, lod skorpen blive – og puttede den senere i chokolade is, hehe)

  2. I feel you and love baking on “my own”, but sometimes a mix is just what you need fr some easy “low-stress” treats ;)
