It is the weekend, which means that sweet things must be on the menu. But not to worry, these are guilt- free and even healthy! Yes you read right, so you can have as many as you want. Packed with goodness, these babies will satisfy that sweet-tooth.
For The Brownies:
500g medjool dates, 4 cups
220g blanched hazelnuts, 2 cups
5-6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
4 tablespoons of maple syrup
Pinch of sea salt
For The Frosting:
250g madjool dates, 1 1/2 cups
60g raw cacao powder, 1/2 cup
100g coconut oil, 1/2 cup
240ml almond milk, 1 cup
Preheat oven to 180c. Roast your hazelnuts in the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden, take out and leave to cool. Once cool, blend the roasted hazelnuts in a food processor, then add the dates and blend again before adding the cacao and maple syrup. Place the mixture into a baking tray and refrigerate. While the brownies are in the fridge, place all of your frosting ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Take out your brownies and spoon a smooth layer of your frosting over the top. Place back in the fridge for 3-4 hours to allow the brownies to set.
When brownies are set, cut up and enjoy, guilt-free!
