Browned Butter, Pear, and Chocolate Chip Brownie Cups

Makes 1 dozen

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

8 tb butter, melted, browned

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tb maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups pear puree

4 tb cocoa powder

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 350° Line a baking sheet with cupcake liners or butter an 8′-9′ inch cake pan. Set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the whole wheat and almond flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a mixing bowl, combine the browned butter, sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla until fluffy. With the mixer on low, slowly add the eggs in one at a time. Once eggs are incorporated, add the pear puree and cocoa powder until consistency is smooth. With the mixer still on low, add the flour mixture in batches just until combined. The mixture will look uneven and a little curdled from the pear puree, but this is okay. The brownies will bake well and rise slightly.

With an ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into the prepared cupcake liners and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown, and when a tester runs clean.
