Chilli Brownies

This is without a doubt my new favourite chocolate recipe - or maybe even dessert recipe, ever. It is moist, healthy, sweet, indulgent, tremendously chocolatey and has a kick. I can not convey how delicious these are, just go make them.



Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: N/A
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients
Brownie:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup cocoa powder (or 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup of chocolate protein powder)
2 tbsp natural yogurt (flax seed for vegans)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pink salt

Ganache:
1/4 cup coconut oil (or date water)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp red pepper flakes

Method
  • In a blender or food processor blitz the walnuts and cinnamon until a crumb has formed, watch you dont blend for too long or you will end up with walnut butter!



  • Add in the cocoa powder and protein powder (if using), blitz till combined. Scoop into a bowl.

  • Add the dates and yogurt to the blender and pulse until blended. I used pitted dates and they were a bit dry so I soaked them in hot water for 20 minutes. I then drained them and blitzed, I also kept the water to add to my ganache. If you are using medjool dates you wont need to soak.



  • Add the date mix to the walnut mix, combine, add some water or milk to help it along if needed. Once combined press into a lined tray.



  • To make the ganache; in a small bowl mix all the ingredients until you have a smooth icing like consistency dollop onto the brownie mix.

  • Smooth out and sprinkle with chilli flakes. I used the water from my dates instead of coconut oil and it worked great and is a lot healthier, either works well.



  • Place the brownies in the fridge until set or in the freezer for about 5 minutes.

  • Cut the brownies into squares and enjoy for 4-5 days.

  • Pure heaven.
