Silk Mousse Brownies
3 oz unsweetened dark chocolate, melted 1 C neutral oil, like grape seed, or a non flavored coconut oil 2½ C coconut sugar 4 large organic eggs 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract ¾ tsp. pink sea salt ½ tsp. cornstarch ⅓ C cacao powder 2 Tbsp. almond flour
Chocolate Mousse: ¾ C organic butter softened, but not warm 1¼ cup coconut sugar 5 Tbsp. cacao powder 1½ Tsp. pure vanilla extract ½ Tsp. pink sea salt 3 large organic eggs 3 drops fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 Grease a 9 x 9 baking dish
In a mixing bowl, combine the melted chocolate, oil, and coconut sugar. Mix to combine.
Slowly mix in the eggs. Whisk in the vanilla, salt, cornstarch, cacao and flour.
Pour mixture into greased pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before adding the chocolate mousse.
For Mousse: Use an electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment.
Beat butter and coconut sugar on high speed until completely smooth and fluffy. (coconut sugar is really gritty, so give it time to dissolve in to the butter or you will have crunchy mousse)
Once the sugar is dissolved Add the cacao, vanilla and salt and mix until combined. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, beating 4-5 minutes with each egg. Add lemon juice with the last egg and beat until totally smooth and fluffy.
Spread mousse on cooled brownies and freeze for 1 hour.
Remove from freezer, cut into squares.
Optional: Garnish with cream and chocolate shavings. Store covered in the fridge.
