Not the best picture in the world (see bellow, waaaay bellow), not the prettiest, best looking squares in the world, but! (here comes the good "but") among the best tasting baked goods in the world. Just trust me!
Fairly easy to make, even though involves a two-step process. Just kidding, 'two step process' sounds too high tech for a Sunday [yes, these have been made on a Sunday morning, the morning of February the 12th, to be precise, and only maze-like to-do lists and to-not-do lists prevent this posting to see the .... light (?) ]
Now on to the recipe:
Preheat the oven at 350 F.
In a large bowl, mix together:
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/2 cup agave syrup
- pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsweetened, organic chocolate chips, melted
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
Pour the batter into a parchment lined 10 in square baking pan. Bake for ~ 10 minutes, until set.
In the meanwhile, in a medium bowl mix well with an electrical mixer:
- 1 cup sour cream (or heavy cream)
- 4 tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1 whole egg
- 1/4 cup agave syrup (or honey for a slightly lighter color of this top layer)
- 1 cup strawberries (pieces, fresh or from frozen)
When the 10 minutes are up, remove the baking pan containing the bottom layer from the oven and carefully pour the strawberry layer onto the brownie.
Bake for another ~ 40-45 minutes, until the sides begin to pull away from the pan, and the top layer is set.
Cool completely before cutting into squares. The squares will probably look like this, but they're awfully tasty!
