"Necessary CBD Recipe #2: hemp CBD-infused Brownies"


Well, I couldn’t help myself! That hemp CBD-infused chai came out so well last week that I had to try another recipe. This one is probably familiar to most people who are reading this, and is a staple of both the cannabis culture and celebrations all over the United States. Yep, you guessed it, brownies. Even if you’ve never made them, pot brownies can be a whole new experience for you and your celebration, but that’s not the kind I’m talking about today. These brownies are not intended to get you high, and they’re not intended to be entirely bad for you, either. As we discussed last week, putting a drop or three in your brownie batter and baking it up to perfection may help to alleviate symptoms you may be having from certain conditions, and either way they are delicious, simple, and easy to make. Since I’m insatiably curious, let’s start with the history of the brownie.

The History of the Brownie

According to The Nibble, a webzine about specialty foods, the first recipe for brownies was created by one Fanny Merritt Farmer, who changed her chocolate cookie recipe by cooking it in a rectangular pan (sound familiar?) in 1905 America. Technically, brownies are bar cookies, and not cake, although I’m sure you’ve seen recipes for “cake-like brownies” if you are a brownie aficionado. I personally prefer the fudgy ones, unless we’re talking about swirled brownies (my all-time favorite), which complement the baked cream cheese perfectly. The brownie name may come from the name of mischievous household, fairie spirits from Scottish and English folklore. They are usually male, naked, and covered in brown shaggy hair. Hmmm, I’ll stick with the baked brownies, thanks!

The Recipe

Brownie recipes should be simple, easy-to-make, and not from a box mix. I know, I know, it’s a timesaver, but I would rather leave all the preservatives out and keep all the fudgy goodness in. I found this recipe on the Café Delites website, and mixed it up with about five drops of Green Lotus hemp CBD-oil. Here’s the recipe so you can try it yourself, with or without the hemp oil.

Hemp-CBD Oil-infused Best Fudgy Cocoa Brownies

Ingredients:

 

Green Lotus CBD Oil  (We cannot suggest how much Green Lotus CBD Tincture you should infuse your brownies with, see note below) [1]

  • ½ cup of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup of sugar or 1 and 1/8 cup of caster, superfine sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of any instant coffee
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt

(And that’s it! I love simple recipes – there’s just no point jumping through all those culinary hoops if the outcome is the same or better, now is there?)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F [2]
  2. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan (I used a stick of melty butter; you can line it with parchment paper if you have that lying around, I never do)
  3. Combine melted butter, oils, and sugar together in a bowl, and whisk very well for one minute.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until the batter turns a lighter color, about a minute – this ensures the crackly top we all love.
  5. Add flour, cocoa, and salt, stirring gently until just combined (you don’t want the lumps to come out completely, and you want all dry ingredients to be JUST wet – this is very important).
  6. Pour the batter into your pan and smooth the top – I like to do a little wavy spatula flourish like my mom taught me.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center isn’t jiggly. The toothpick test is always the best, but with fudgy brownies, it will still come out dirty, just not unbaked.
  8. Take the pan out and let it cool completely before cutting (it will bake a bit more in the pan).

The Results

These brownies were divine, plenty chocolatey and not cakey, just like I like them. The coconut oil and the Green Lotus hemp CBD oil added a nice flavor to them, and some nutrition, too. Without ingredients like melted chocolate chips and candy bars, a lot of the fat and extra sugar were cut out, making these brownies healthier in more ways than one. The instant coffee gives them a bit of a kick and some smoky coffee flavor, too, but you can leave that out if you want. Give them a try!
