Instructions
 

Brownies

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray and then line with two pieces of overlapping parchment paper.
  • Melt your coconut oil in a glass measuring cup or small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add cane sugar and eggs. Whisk for about 2 minutes. When color is a pale yellow, whisk in cooled coconut oil, followed by vanilla extract, water, and salt.
  • Finally, whisk in cocoa powder and almond flour until batter is smooth. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Smooth batter with a spatula so that it sits evenly in pan.
  • Using a spoon, dollop raspberry jam evenly over batter. With the back of the spoon, gently spread jam dollops out so that most of the batter is covered.
  • Bake for 30-33 minutes. A toothpick test should come out with a few wet crumbs. Place on cooling rack.
  • You may find that the jam layer has bubbled up in places during baking. Use a toothpick or fork to pop them.
  • When brownies have cooled, prepare chocolate ganache.
