The happy chocolate brownie

I was in charge of making dessert at a dinner party with a bunch a paleo crossfitters. Obviously it had to be gluten and refined-products free. So I decided to make my own – Interweb inspired – version of the chocolate brownie. I totally nailed it, and it has become my signature dessert. It’s super easy and super healthy, and most importantly it makes you happy!

Ingredients:

  • Dark Chocolate (70% cacao minimum), 150 gr
  • Almond Flour or very finely chopped almonds, 100gr
  • 3 eggs
  • Raw honey, 2 tablespoons
  • Coconut Oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Dates, 10 if they’re small, 8 if they’re chunkier
  • A handful of dried cranberries or raisins
  • A pinch of salt
  • Pecans, a handful (optional, but I like the crunch)
Instructions:
  • Pre-heat the oven, 200°C
  • Heat the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain-marie 
  • In a blender, pour the chocolate and coconut oil along with the other ingredients (if you decide to go for the pecans, add them once the rest is well mixed). You should get a semi-liquid mixture
  • Pour in a mould (preferably a squared one) and bake for 15 minutes (don’t over cook it; been there, done that!)

Let the brownie cool down before you cut it. Enjoy every bite of it!
