Fudgy Red Wine Brownies

These are very rich very delicious. They are Super chocolaty with a hint of red wine to add a depth to the flavor. The best part is that they are super easy to make and you probably have everything you need at home. I love fancy desserts that aren't fancy to make!

1 1/4 cup Cocoa powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup Red wine
3 tablespoons Coconut oil (or butter)
2 tablespoons Coconut milk (or any milk)
1/2 tablespoon Honey
5 tablespoons Stevia
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl add cocoa powder, eggs, and red wine. Mix carefully so that you don't spill the cocoa. Next warm coconut oil until it's liquid and add to the mixture. Next add coconut milk, honey and stevia and mix well, trying to eliminate any remaining clumps. Last but not least add the baking soda and vinegar and mix again. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan (the size of a loaf of bread) and bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clear.

While this is in the oven it's time to beat up some frosting.

1/2 cup Palm shortening
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
2 tablespoons Stevia
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Place shortening in a sauce pan and heat on low. Add cocoa, stevia and vanilla and mix with a fork, breaking up any clumps. Remove from heat when you are done mixing (you do not want the mixture to simmer or boil, just a lite heat). When brownie is cooled (about 15 mins), pour frosting on top of brownie and smooth evenly with a spatula. If the frosting has cooled too much to pour it, then reheat and then pour onto brownie. Let the frosting harden and set and serve brownie at room temperature or chilled. Enjoy!
