choc brownie

Hello, hope your week is going well.  It's been a little while since I last shared a recipe.  So I have one here, my last recipe post for the year ☺
My boys love chocolate and I love to make them chocolate treats.
 This here is a chocolate brownie slice that has been adapted from a recipe I had in one of my files - I've changed up the ingredients and added in a few extra too ..............
I do this one in my Thermomix but you could easily adapt to suit ☺
 Chocolate Brownie

100 - 150gr butter
1/2 cup rapadura
4 eggs
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
100 - 150gr dark choc **
5 medjool dates

Place all ingredients in Thermomix or processor and blend together til just combined.  I don't over do it, as I like chocolate chunks in the cake; but if you wish, you could make a smooth batter.

Pour into a lined rectangle tin and bake for approx 20 mins - don't over cook as you want the cake to be moist.

 It's lovely eaten warm with cream and strawberries, but easily keeps for a few days in the fridge.
For a variation you could add: 2-3 tblsp of espresso - yummy ☺
I hope you give it a try - this cake is gluten free and refined sugar free.
* I use a 70% cocoa chocolate bar but if you like a sweeter cake, choose the chocolate of your choice ☺

Happy baking ♥
