Elinos’ brownies inspired by ‘Deliciously Ella’ are now here for you to jot down! Easy to make, a sweet thrill and super healthy! What more do we want?
Serves approx.: 20
for the brownies:
- 500g 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 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, fan setting.
Roast 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 until they form a crumbly mixture, then add the dates and blend again before adding the cacao and maple syrup. Place the mixture into a baking tray (27cm x 20cm) and refrigerate.
While brownies are in the fridge, place all frosting ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Take out brownies and spoon a smooth layer of 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! Then keep them in the fridge for freshness.
