The secret ingredient in this brownie recipe is the chai spices, which gives the brownies such a unique taste! You simply cut open a tea bag and pour it in! Your choice of green, black or herbal chai tea. I posted a picture below of the coconut chai tea that I used. This recipe is a cross between brownie and fudge textures. It is rich, decadent and for the true chocolate lover!
Typical spices in chai include black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and the herb fennel. The fennel and spices frequently featured in chai are known to help promote better digestive health. For example, black pepper stimulates the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid required for breaking down food, while fennel inhibits bacteria that cause gas and clove refreshs your mouth and throat. Cinnamon is also a health-protecting antioxidant, and ginger is a recognized anti-nausea remedy that soothes the stomach. All of that aside, the bottom line is…. IT TASTES GREAT! What more research needs to be done? haha
