These brazil nut brownies are free from refined sugar, made with plain chocolate, cocoa powder and honey for natural sweetness. They are simple to make, but have been given a healthy makeover, using coconut oil, wholemeal spelt flour and Brazil nuts, which are a rich source of selenium, which boosts your immune system and helps heal wounds. But these better-for-you brownies taste great too, and no one will even know the difference. Trying to cut down on sugar? Make a batch of these to try.

Ingredients

  • 100g coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 125g plain dark chocolate with no added sugar, broken into pieces
  • 100ml milk
  • 175g honey
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 30g Brazil nuts, roughly chopped

Method

  • Grease a 18cm x 18cm baking tin and line with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 190C, gas 5.

  • Place the coconut oil, chocolate, milk and honey in a saucepan and heat very gently, stirring, until melted.

  • Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder, then leave to cool for a few minutes.

  • Beat in the eggs, then fold in the flour, baking powder and Brazil nuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.

  • Bake on the oven for 35-40 minutes until just set. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely. Cut into 12 squares to serve.
