Brownies and Pie (whole grain and agave!)

I have had sooo many people request more recipes that I am putting two on today. These use whole grains and no sugar and taste dang good. And these ones feature chocolate, of course!

Terri's Gooey Brownies

1 Cup butter melted
6-8 Tblsp Cocoa powder
4 eggs
1 Cup agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla
1 Cup flour ( I use 1/2 brown rice flour and 1/2 coconut flour with great results!)
1 Cup Grain sweetened Chocolate chips

First beat the cocoa into the melted butter, then add agave, eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add dry ingredients and choc chips, pour into greased 7 x 11 inch pan and bake at 300 deg. for about 30 min... maybe longer depending on how you like them- keep eye on them. If you want them gooey bring them out when they still seem rather moist and cool completely. Once you have made these a few times you will learn at what point they are as baked as you like them.

Jojo's Chocolaty Pecan Pie

Pie Crust ( make your fave with whole grain 1/2 cup whole grain flour of choice
or buy whole wheat frozen crust at Good Earth)
1/2 Cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup crystalline fructose (or 1/2 agave)
1/2 Cup whole grain flour
1 Tblsp Cocoa powder (optional)
1 Cup grain sweetened choc chips
1 Cup chopped pecans
Top with whipped cream (optional)

Preheat oven 350. Cream butter; add eggs and vanilla. Combine sweetener and flour; stir in nuts and chips. Pour into unbaked pastry shell. Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Cool and devour with whipped cream. (I whip my own cream with agave and vanilla)
