Sometimes when you want something sweet and you can’t get exactly what you want you can get what you need. I wanted to make a very elaborate recipe I saw on Pinterest but didn’t have the ingredients on hand. So I whipped this up and it turned out great.


  • 1 C of flour
  • 1/2 C of maple syrup
  • 1/2 C of coconut oil
  • 1/2 C water
  • 3 TBSP of cocoa powder
  • 2 TBSP og chia seeds
  • 1.5 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt


  1. Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Grease a pie pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.


Strawberry Chocolate Topping

  • 1/2 C coconut oil
  • 1/3 C maple syrup
  • 2 TBSP cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries


  1. Mix the first 4 ingredients together and spread on your brownies once cooled.
  2. Slice your strawberries thinly and layer them on the brownies.


Until we eat again.
