Salted Peanut butter choc chunk sliceDairy free . Gluten free . Paleo . Refined sugar free . Vegan
Scouring the pantry for some chocolate the other day, knowing I only keep healthy foods at home, I set myself a challenge to use only what was already in the pantry, to bake a treat equal parts naughty and nice. A personal favourite balance 😉
The amazing thing about this was, it was super easy, and took less than 5 minutes. Because… priorities. * eyebrow raise
This challenge was made particularly complicated by the fact that I’m currently not eating eggs or milk – those essentially staple foundations for baked goodies. I had to get crafty, and it turned out vegan and free of processed nasties.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: Depends on your oven. Monitor at 160 – 170 degrees
1 cup of almond meal
2 tablespoons of cacao
75g coconut oil for vegan, butter for non-vegan.
1-2 tablespoons of chia seeds
3/4 can of coconut milk
1 teaspoons of baking powder
2 tablespoons of honey
2 heaped tablespoons of unsalted peanut butter. Only add a pinch of salt if the peanut butter is freshly ground.
1 heaped tablespoon of tapioca flower – otherwise it’s too dense.
Optional for extra gut healing : 1 tablespoon of food grade heal your gut powder. Diatomaceous Earth. If you have this in your pantry already. No need to buy.
Instructions: Grease a brownie pan with some coconut oil and pour the blended ingredients and place in the oven until you are happy. I hand blend with a wooden spoon old school ethnic style but you can use a food processor if you are particularly crafty. 😉
Bonus tip: Taste the batter before using. Add extra honey if you need to if it’s not sweet enough for your liking.
Happy Friday Team,
May you all have a happy & sunshiney weekend
