Chocolate Brownies



1/2 cup extremely finely grated apple

8 pitted dates

1 medium ripe banana

1/4 cup maple syrup

just over 1/4 cup of rice bran oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup flour of choice

1/2 cup almond meal (you can grind almonds in food processor)

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/3 cup chopped walnuts


1. Preheat oven to 175 C and line tin/pan with parchment paper so it’s fully covered.

2. (I used magic bullet for this but you can use a food processor) process the almonds into a flour like consistency. Remove ground almonds and set aside. In the food processor, process the apple, dates, banana, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth

3. Whisk together the dry ingredients

4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. Fold in the nuts

5. Spoon batter into prepared pan and gently smooth out with a wet spatula. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cake tester comes out with a few crumbs. Cut in to squares and serve
