orange ginger pecan cherry choc chip brownies

Recipe by

Another happy accident. Too much milk for a two egg omelet accidentally poured into the bowl by sleepy eyes. The leftover orange ginger jam from the Thanksgiving cheese platter begging for a purpose. An unopened bag of almond flour because it was in front of the pantry and on top. Thank goodness I had baking powder. The last orange. A jar of pecans. Half a bar of dark chocolate. A bag of dried cherries. Imagination.

How To Make orange ginger pecan cherry choc chip brownies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 F
  • 2
    Line a brownie pan with parchment.
  • This is everything I've used in the recipe
    Blend together the dry stuff: almond flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and wheat gluten.
  • 4
    Whip eggs and milk until frothy.
  • I get this at Costco. It is basically citrus marmalade with ginger and honey.
    Gently blend honey citron ginger tea and softened butter into whipped eggs and milk with a whisk. You'll see little chunks of butter - that's ok.
  • 6
    Roughly chop pecans, chocolate, and cherries.
  • 7
    Zest a whole orange with a fine zester.
  • 8
    Fold the batter and chunky stuff together to get a thick chunky batter.
  • 9
    Pour into the parchment lined brownie pan, making it as flat as possible. Don't rap the pan to even it out or the solids will fall to the bottom.
  • 10
    Bake at 325 F for about 35 minutes or until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 11
    Let cool before cutting.
