3/4 C Boiling Water

1 tsp Bob's Red Mill Baking Soda(aluminium free)

200g Coconut Oil (use either Blue Coconut cooking or Organic Wild for mild coconut taste & weigh out & gently melt)

4 Free Range Eggs

1 C Life Foods Organic Raw Coconut Sugar (low GI of 35 – good for Diabetics)

3/4 C Life Foods Organic Raw Cacao Powder (one of the highest antioxidants on the planet)

150g Almond Meal/Flour (on the more2u website as well in 150 g packs or could use Coconut, buckwheat flours or Spelt if not needing gluten free)

1 tsp Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder (gluten free)

1/2 C Life Foods Organic Raw Cacao Nibs

 

Method

1.         Preheat oven to 160oC fan bake.  Put the kettle on to boil. Line base & sides of your chosen tin (rectangle - 20cm x 28 cm approx)                 with baking paper.

2.         Roughly chop dates & pour over the boiling water in a glass jug & add baking soda, dissolve & soak chopped dates for 5 minutes                   before adding to your Optimum 9400 blender.

3.         Add gently melted Coconut Oil & blend on high until you get a smooth paste consistency.

4.         Add eggs, Coconut Sugar, Cacao Powder, Almond Meal/Flour, Baking Powder & Cacao Nibs & pulse until just combined, scrape                  down sides of blender jug or use tamper & pulse again until well combined.

5.        Pour into lined baking tin & spread evenly & bake for 40- 50 minutes until the middle is set & the brownie is just coming away from                the edges.  Allow to cool before cutting.  Keeps well for a good week in the cake tin & freezes well also. 

6.         Serve with your own homemade Mascarpone or Kefir Cream mixed with Heilala Vanilla Paste (make the day before so it sets in                   fridge) & fresh berries or some Goji Berries & extra Cacao Nibs.
