These beautiful crispy edged and deliciously chewy brownies should be made Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fri…you get the picture. They are genuinely THAT good.
There’s nothing nicer than creating a healthy version of a traditional sugar laden recipe, making it with clean ingredients, packed with goodness. Especially when the end result tastes better than the original.
This really is one of those recipes. You’ll make it over and over again and if nuts are a problem, switch out the nut butter for tahini and swap out the cashews for cacao nibs if you wanna bit of crunch.
The peanut sauce is the perfect sidekick to these brownies and you can drizzle with melted sugarfree chocolate to finish.
Ingredients for brownies 2 eggs 1 tbsp melted coconut oil 12 medjool dates soaked in hot water for 15 mins 1/2 cup whole cashews 1 ripe banana 2 tablespoons peanut butter / nut butter 1.5 cups almond meal 3/4 cup cacao powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1 tsp vanilla paste Splash of plant based milk to loosen mixture Pinch of salt Ingredients for peanut butter sauce 2 tbsp nut butter 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tbsp coconut cream / splash of plant milk to loosen Method - Brownies 1. Preheat the oven to 180 2. Add the drained dates, bananas, eggs vanilla & nut butter to the food processor and whizz until well combined. 3. Then add in the almond flour, cacao, salt, baking powder and mix together. 4. Pout in the coconut oil and whizz again until well combined. Add in the cashews and pulse. It’s good to keep the cashews quite chunky for extra bite. If the mix is too thick loosen a little with a splash of plant based milk. 5. Add to a greased baking tray and bake for 20 mins until the top layer looks nice and cracked. Test with a skewer to make sure it comes out clean. You want the outside crispy but the middle nice and chewy. Peanut Butter Sauce Add all the ingredients to a saucepan and warm through so the peanut butter loosens, you wants the consistency to be thick but a little runny to be able to pour over your brownies.
