Brownie Pie with Cranberries!

Pecans, Chocolate, Cranberries: It doesn’t get better!

This time I decided to dream up  a brownie-based tart. My brownies are a big crowd pleaser, with lots of wiggle room to accommodate flavor variations. So I used them as my starting point, and sneaked in a whole bag of fresh cranberries, without upsetting the delicate balance that yields such creamy brownies.

Do not change anything in my brownie pie: It’s fantastic! And so simple.

I had some gluten-free guests, and it was no hardship whatsoever using rice flour.

I love cranberries too much!

I couldn’t bear to be separated until next autumn, so I buy a small truckload of them, and keep them in my freezer year-round.

I love to use my 12 inch pie plate, pictured above. It makes for a dramatic and beautiful presentation. But you could use 2 9″ pie plates instead, only try your best to get pie plates with straight sides (as opposed to the sloping Pyrex pie plates). It will be much easier to serve.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, very good quality
  • 1 cup coconut oil (health food stores)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 pouches Levana Nourishments Cocoa Coffee
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans (preheated 325 degree oven about 12 minutes)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the chocolate and coconut oil on a very low flame (or microwave 2 minutes). Stir to combine the melted mixture thoroughly.

In a food processor or with a hand mixer, beat the eggs, meal replacement and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the chocolate mixture and process (or mix) until combined. Add the flour and pulse just 2-3 times, or mix, until just combined. Fold in the nuts and cranberries with a spoon.

Pour the batter into a greased 12-inch pie plate, or 2 9-inch pie plates, and bake one hour, until the center is barely firm, not a minute longer: the residual heat will do the remaining drop baking it needs, and it will firm up as it cools. Chill the pie (s) completely before slicing.

Variation:

Try using Mixed Berry Levana Nourishments instead of Cocoa Coffee.
