Ultra fudgy and just what you'd expect from your favourite brownie, you'll definitely confuse your friends if you reveal what's in these brownies! Almond butter, cacao powder, dates and chia seeds might not be traditional but they work amazingly well together to create these healthy chocolatey treats.
1 tbsp Aduna Baobab Powder
1/2 - 3/4 cup Aduna Super-Cacao Powder
1 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cups Medjool dates
1/4 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown rice flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 175C. In a bowl, combine the chia seeds and the water and set aside to thicken for 15 minutes.
Add the melted coconut oil, Medjool dates, almond butter, non-dairy milk and maple syrup and blend until smooth. Don’t worry if it's not a 100% smooth batter - a few little pieces of dates adds texture!
In a large bowl, combine the baking powder, brown rice flour, baobab, salt and cacao powder.
Pour the liquid mixture from the blender into the dry ingredients, along with the soaked chia seeds and mix well.
Pour the brownie batter into a lined pan (approx 2" thick is ideal) and bake for approx. 35 minutes, or until you can insert a knife into it and it comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
