Blueberry chocolate torte brownies

Psssssst..... Becky! This one's for you.

Dude! There are no healthy brownies. I scoured the interwebs for alternative brownie recipes and could not find a single one that sounded appealing. Lots of veggie/bean burgers mixed with chocolate shaped into squares. Even avocado brownies? Puh-lease people! That's not a fucking brownie.

I considered cutting a super gooey fudgy brownie recipe in half and adding so much fruit that it would be "healthier," but alas, I realized this would just be a fail waiting to happen. I did make some compromises on a recipe I found adding raw organic cacao powder rather than cocoa powder, and adding more blueberries/less chocolate chips. The results were........ ergh....... pretty good but not awesome. These brownies are ALMOST there. More like a cakey torte than a gooey brownie. I am a really shitty baker though. My measurements are a joke, which is why I don't bake. I'm more of a "little bit of this little bit of that" type of cook.

Inspired by: I am Baker and Becky
Makes: about 12 brownies
Hands on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 stick butter
1/8 cup chocolate chips
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350F and butter a 8x8 square pan.
Place butter and blueberries in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and vanilla. Slowly add blueberry mixture, tempering eggs so they don't scramble. Stir in cacao powder, flour and salt until combined.
Pour in greased pan and spread mixture evenly in pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick (or fork) comes out without goo, just crumbs.

So, here's my thinking:

One brownie won't kill anyone. Just one. That's it. This recipe is pretty close so if you can expand on this to make it great, let me know!

Happy humpday friends!



  1. Hey! Thanks for researching and looking and coming up with something! I will definitely make these and let you know how it goes! :)

  2. Oh hey, Trish...I wanted to post a link to this recipe on my blog, and use one of your pictures (including the picture linking to your blog) - would that be ok? I won't post anything until you say it's ok, of course. :)

  3. I love to eat blueberry flavors, but I have never eaten candies with blueberries and chocolate, I will try it right away.

  5. Everyone who loves sweets will become a fan of this super chocolate cake, since it is simply impossible to forget its rich chocolate flavor.

  6. Adding a small amount of berries to this type of cake can give a good result. Brownie will be not too sticky, but tasty. It is a good variation of the traditional recipe.

  7. Chocolate cake is always a celebration of taste, because when cooking it, the house is always filled with the incredible aroma of chocolate and dough.

  8. Keeping a blog of such a direction will allow us to find out the current information regarding the topics of interest. It will also be convenient to use the tips provided by the author.

  9. Adding the bilberries to the dough for this type of cake should be controlled. A slight excess of the norm will not spoil the pronounced chocolate flavor. However, we should not abuse it
