Chai Brownies

Passover is right around the corner. While I don’t clean my house of “chametz” (any food that’s made of grain and water that have been allowed to ferment and “rise” like: bread, cereal, cake, cookies, pizza, pasta, and beer), I try to avoid cooking or baking with anything that contains flour.  As a result, the weeks prior I usually go on a baking binge to try to curb any chametz-like cravings.

Last night, at the last minute, I decided to bake a batch of Chai Brownies  from a recipe I saw during my Secret Recipe Club reveal day.  We love brownies and can’t get enough of Mom’s Kahlua Brownies.  I also adore my Chai Tea lattes from Starbucks (I know I know, there’s a ton of sugar in the syrup pumps, that’s why I always order a “2 pump chai”).  It’s safe to say this particular recipe is the perfect merger of our favorite sweet and spice.

For the non Chai lovers out there, no worries, there’s merely a trace of the chai flavoring in the brownies and you can alter to your choosing.  When I was baking, I used ground instead of whole cloves and omitted the cardamon all together.

Hope you enjoy.
