Certainly, without exception, have tried brownie in the classic version (although, by the way, variations in many dessert). In this recipe, I tried to connect the rich chocolate taste and the benefits of flax flour, which has been known since ancient times and that is widely used in my recipes???? The result was a wet brownie cake with a slightly viscous consistency and a genuine taste of chocolate.

Cake consists of flax meal only a quarter, but even these 45 programs bring tremendous benefit. Judge for yourself: in the used amount of grams of easily digestible protein 16, 4,5 grams of good fats (essential Omega-3 и Omega-6 fatty acids), valuable trace elements to 30% of fiber and only 4,5 grams of carbohydrates. Impressive, right? It is said, and the total caloric content of food is greatly reduced through the use of flax meal.

Flax meal invaluable not only for gastrointestinal (eliminates toxins and wastes, normalizes metabolism, acts as an antioxidant), but also for the cardiovascular system. This is due to fatty acids and potassium, which break down cholesterol and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. Based on this property the use of flax seeds in the treatment of atherosclerosis and coronary heart failure.

Also flaxseed - one of the richest sources lignansBelonging to the class of phytoestrogens, substances of vegetable origin which exhibit antitumor activity. Scientific evidence suggests that flax seed lignans possess potent antioxidant activity.

The use of flax meal is not limited to, a lot of information on this subject can be found on the Internet. Therefore, to include it in the diet even in small quantities (adding cereal, muffins and pies, pancakes, печенье) I think just needed!

Returning to a cake, also note the presence of dark chocolate. That, as part of which the cocoa mass and cocoa butter are shown first. This chocolate sugar minimum and maximum benefit, which are cocoa products. If possible, I advise you to use a high-quality dark chocolate, which has no animals and confectionery (trans) fats. Replace chocolate on cocoa powder, I do not recommend - a special cake-brownie consistency is achieved due to the presence in the composition of cocoa butter.

Do not be afraid of a large list of ingredients! Be sure to cook the flavorful cake, brownie, which combines in perfect tandem saturated shololadny "stringy" the taste and benefits of flax meal.

Cupcake Brown: dark chocolate and the use of flax meal. Recipe


  • Flour wheaten of second grade* - 150 g;
  • flour linen - 45 g;
  • Ricotta - 200 g;
  • eggs - 2 pieces;
  • sugar - 120 g (possible partial replacement of stevia);
  • dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher) - 180-200 g;
  • coconut oil (Or any vegetable refined) - 2 tbsp (Or 40 ml);
  • cocoa powder - 3 tbsp;
  • yogurt / yogurt ~ 200 ml;
  • boiling water ~ 250 ml;
  • baking powder - 1 tsp;
  • Salt - a pinch;
  • vanilla - to taste.

*You can also use white flour with whole wheat or in half, combining in the ratio 50: 50.


Chocolate smash into slices and melt in a water bath or in a microwave oven.

Ricotta blender whisk eggs and sugar until smooth consistency. Add the yogurt and mix until uniform.

Муку смешайте с какао, рызрыхлителем, щепоткой соли, ванилью. Добавьте частями сухую смесь в жидкую. Масса будет очень густой! Добавьте растопленный шоколад и перемешайте с помощью лопатки.

Then the dough pieces enter in a glass of boiling water (to avoid the spray, I advise to mix the dough at this stage, a shovel, and if you are lucky enough to own a planetary mixer, use it).

When the dough will be more or less homogeneous, add the coconut / vegetable oil. Stir until smooth (you can use the mixer on low speed).

The dough will be quite thick and viscous.

I recommend to try the dough into sweet (especially if you use substitutes instead of sugar), is important because in baked goods with a high content of fiber sweetness it feels a little different. Yes, and preferences are different, someone needs more sweetness, and someone (like me :) quite minimal.

Cover the cake pan with parchment-brownie (or make a "French shirt", missed the wall with oil and then sprinkled them liberally with flour) and reload the dough with a spatula. Send in a preheated 180 degree oven for about 50-60 minutes.

Yes, I note that the cake-brownie strong rises during baking, after he settles a bit. After switching off the oven, do not remove it immediately, 10-15 minutes hold it there.

Before you remove from the mold, cool.

Now THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: полностью остудив кекс, заверните его в пищевую пленку и уберите в холодильник минимум на несколько часов или на ночь. Это сделать я рекомендую обязательно (кстати, касается также и бисквитной выпечки), т.к. вкус кекса станет намного насыщенней, «раскроется».

Warm muffins I personally do not think so delicious. That's cold - a different matter, so, you know, fudgeAs the Americans say, how sweet :)

Cupcake Brown - dark chocolate and the use of flax meal - perfect for both breakfastAs well as for the festive tea party! It is convenient to take with you as a snack. And he kept until 5 days in the refrigerator (in a film or a container).
