If you like dark chocolate then you will love this!!! It is incredibly moist, rich, dense and chocolatey. A little tip though, if you make this for friends, inparticular ones that have a fear of green food, tell them what it is made of afterwards. The psychology around this brownie is amazing. I have made it several times now and watched people’s response when I have openly stated that it includes kale…..there are usually lots of wrinkled noses and looks of “errr, no thanks”. THEN, when I have handed this out as a “chocolate brownie” it has been inhaled without a second thought!!! Seriously, sometimes adults are worse than my 2 year olds!
- 80g purple or green kale (I used purple)
- 130g banana
- 3 caps of vanilla extract
- 7 heaped tbsp. honey roasted nuts
- ¾ cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
- 50g coconut flour
- 60g cacao powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp runny honey
- ½ cup water
- 30g of smashed up 99% cacao chocolate (Lindt)
- Preheat the oven to 180C and line a shallow brownie tin/mould (20x20cm)
- Mix the first 8 listed ingredients in a food processor until finely chopped/mixed well.
- Now add the baking soda, honey and water to the food processor and mix well.
- Place this mixture into a lined tin and bake for 35 minutes.
- When it has cooked, remove from the oven and, using a large spatula, flatten the slice – press down really well to create a very dense slice.
- Allow this to fully cool before cutting. Store in an air-tight container.
