I’ve made my first batch of Brownies and I’m very impressed with myself if I do say so! :)

As always, I’ll keep the recipe and method simple…

You’ll need

thumbnail_DSC_1287

Dates – 430g

Almonds – 100g

Walnuts – 100g

Cocoa powder – 60g

Salt – Just a pinch

Dark chocolate Chips – Chuck a good few in 😉

Sultanas or Mixed fruit- Chuck another good few in :)

That’s all!

 

Ok, so, the method…

I used a food processor. 

Start by putting the Nuts in and mix until they are finely chopped.

Then add the Cocoa Powder and the Salt.

Mix them all together then put them in a bowl to one side.

Next, make sure all the pits are removed from the Dates and blitz them in the food processor until it forms a kind of big squidgy lump.

Take the lump of squidgy dateyness out and add the Cocoa and Nuts back in to the food processor, start to blend again.

Slowly add bits of the Date into the mixture until it mixes in. Don’t worry if some of it doesn’t mix at this point… just mix what you can.

Put the mixture into a bowl and mix either with your hands, a big spoon or a potato masher… I’m not joking, I used a potato masher and it worked a treat :)

Add the Choc Chips and Sultanas and mix them in.

Put some baking paper on a baking try. Whack the mixture on there and spread it out. (The below pic has an added ingredient which I’ll mention below.)

Freeze for 15 mins.

Take out and cut in to desired squares.

To write my very subtle note… I used Dr Oetkers Salted Caramel Crunch.. they are blooming lovely and go really well with the brownies! After I took the pic I dispersed them out and pressed them in to the brownies…. beeeeeyoooot!

There are no added nasties, no added sugar, no dairy, no added fat and they don’t need to be cooked! They taste amazing, are good for the planet and good for you!
