Here it is! My amazing Breaky Brownie recipe. The Healthiest Brownie going around (as long as you don't eat the whole thing in one sitting - believe me it's a challenge not to!) This brownie is rated AO as it does contain a bit of caffeine. But it's so good you wont want to share it with your kids anyway...
The Breaky Brownie is high in protein to keep you full, high in Omega 3 fatty acids for brain, skin and heart health, contains antioxidants for healthy aging, fiber to keep you regular and a touch of caffeine for a little morning energy lift.
I don't need to tell you to enjoy this...
1-2 tsp organic instant coffee
1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped
1 cup almond meal
2 cups (approx 15) Medjool dates, pitted and chopped (soak in warm water for 5 minutes to soften, then dry with paper towel)
3/4 cup raw cacao
2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
Combine almond meal and 1 cup of the walnuts in a food processor or good blender, process until finely ground. Add the cacao, coffee, cinnamon and salt and combine. Set aside, then add the chopped dates to the blender and blend until relatively smooth. Add the dry mix back in and blend until combined. Add more dates if the batter doesn't stay together when squeezed. Press mix into a paper lined loaf tin with the remaining chopped walnuts and set in fridge or freezer before cutting (if you can wait!).
These recipes come from my Grandmother who is the love and inspiration of my life and hands down, the best cook in the whole world. Some recipes I've tweaked to make into a healthier version, others I've left for you to enjoy as a treat.
