Namaste No-dairy, No-soy, No-potato Mocha Brownies
1/2 recipe Namaste Blondie batter (mix + 3 eggs+ 1 cup oil +1/4 cup water, then divide batter)

2 unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1 tbsp. Spectrum natural shortening
1 or 2 tbsp. vanilla bean infused sugar
2 shots decaf (or caffeinated) espresso or equivalent strong coffee

Prepare square baking dish by lining with parchment paper and greasing with natural shortening. Preheat oven to 350 f.

Melt your baking chocolate squares in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add your shortening and put back in microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir and if needed, microwave again. (Will depend on your microwave power- you want the chocolate liquid.) When you have melted, liquid chocolate add your espresso. Stir and add sugar. Leave on counter for a few minutes.

After preparing Namaste Blondie to directions, separate batter into two large bowls. Reserve one. Add your chocolate mixture which should have thickened again to one batch of batter.

Pour chocolate batter into your pan. Bake for 40 minutes or so and let cool. To remove from pan, slide knife around edges and invert onto a cooling rack.

You can add cherrybrook vanilla icing or other allergen-friendly icing if desired.
