Tropical Traditions Review and Giveaway

 

 

                              

I decided the best way to try out my quart of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil was to make something chocolaty. We love chocolate around here! I went over to the Tropical Traditions Blog and found this recipe~

 PA040960

Coconut Peanut Butter Whole Wheat Brownies

 

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 - 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder (the more cocoa powder you use, the darker they will be. I like a darker chocolate so I use the higher amount)

3/4 cup whole organic sugar - if you like them sweeter, you can use up to 1 3/4 cups but I prefer a more bittersweet chocolate

3 eggsabout 1/4 cup yogurt or sour cream (1 additional egg)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Filling

1 cup peanut butter, coconut peanut butter, or other nut butter of choice

1 cup milk

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix coconut oil with cocoa powder. Add sugar, 3 eggs, yogurt/sour cream (if not using yogurt or sour cream, add 1 egg) and vanilla until well mixed.

In a bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together, add to above mix and stir until well blended.

Filling

Add enough milk to your nut butter to make a consistency similar to that of the brownie mix.

In well greased 9x9 or 8x8 inch square pan, pour 1/2 of brownie mixture in bottom of pan. Spread nut butter mix then spread second half of brownie mix over nut butter.

Bake about 25-35 minutes.

I like mine to be soft and chewy so I take them out before the toothpick comes out clean. The brownies will be cakey if baked until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Best after completely cooled and allowed to set for at least an hour or so but it's hard to wait that long! You can refrigerate and/or freeze the brownies if desired.

Tropical Traditions has a cookbook and you can get it free!

I have had Tropical Traditions bookmarked for some time now. I have been on their website numerous times and even set up a wish list. I love their coconut oil and due to circumstances, haven't had any in a long time. I wish I could order a gallon of their product.
