These healthy nut free brownies are made with ground sunflower seeds and shredded coconut, in place of nut meal. I made them for a friend who has been embracing healthy living, but struggles to find healthy gluten and nut-free recipes for her childís lunchbox.
I am now aware that in many schools, nuts arenít allowed. So in response, I have made this special recipe for Healthy Nut Free Brownies, which is completely school yard safe.
These delightfully decadent Healthy Nut Free Brownies are perfect to serve as an adult dessert, to pack in school lunch boxes, or take on a weekend family picnic.
You will need a blender to grind your sunflower seeds into a nut-meal and to beat the coconut oil, eggs and dates.
