Warm Brownies fresh out of the oven, cold weather outside and the aroma of seasonal fruit dessert all over my house is so perfect and inviting. I love winters for the fact that baking is so much fun and it’s so easy to enjoy desserts especially because I am super fond of brownies.
The market is flooded with a variety of pears so obviously I had to fill my cart with this fiber rich, juicy and nutritious fruit and work to fit them in my refrigerator. 🙂 Since brownies are almost always in my mind and I wanted some caffeine to perk me up in the odd hour of the day I decided to combine pears and coffee in my dessert.
I started with caramelizing pears in maple syrup and blended it smooth along with a combination of banana and chia seeds (to substitute eggs and also to make it soft and fluffy). Spooned it into the mixing bowl of dry ingredients which mainly consisted of almond flour, salt and baking powder. I folded in diluted coffee into the batter and baked in a preheated oven.
It was impossible to wait till fully done because the aroma in the atmosphere was continuously increasing my appetite for this Caramelized Pear Coffee Brownies. When I took the first bite I went ga – ga over it and consciously saved some for my family. Fortunately, that evening I had a surprise visitor and I got a chance for recipe tasting and third party opinion before posting.
Everyone simply loved it and wanted me to bake another batch, in fact Rohit wanted me to bake a fresh batch especially for his office colleagues. Since, then I have been baking this dessert quite regularly and will continue baking it all of this winter. 🙂
