Delicious “almost chocolate brownies” free from: gluten, grains and refined sugar. SCD-friendly and adaptable to Paleo.
Medjool dates, halved and pitted and soaked for 30 minutes
1 cup (240g)
1/2 cup (50g)
1/3 cup (70g)
Butter (unsalted) OR coconut oil for dairy-free and Paleo
Bicarbonate of soda
Free range eggs
Preheat the oven to: 160°C Fan, 180°C electric, 350°F or gas mark 4.
Drain the soaked dates and add them to a blender with the almond butter. Process until smooth.
Melt the butter in a cup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Melt the cacao butter using a glass bowl or jug over a pot with hot water on the stove.
Add the butter or coconut oil and cacao butter to the blender with the rest of the ingredients (except for the shredded coconut). Process until smooth.
Pour the smooth batter into an oven safe dish lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Don’t leave it longer as the brownies will dry out too much.
Cut into brownie squares. These will keep for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge. They won’t last longer than that, trust me!
