NUT BUTTER BROWNIES
This is a ridiculously easy recipe that is surprisingly healthy in its ingredients. And hence it is one of those recipes that is a healthier version of a sweet treat - if you are going to go for some sweet treats at least this one is gluten free, dairy free, grain free, refined sugar free and full of protein and yet scrumptiously delicious with a sticky soft centre and a crisp top. It is sadly not Glutton free though! 🤔
250g almond butter (can use Macro Almond butter from Woolworths or NOURISH, next to L'Alchimiste Apothecary and Clinic in Ballina) carries an amazing fresh Almond butter too)
1/3-1/2 cup honey or Rice Malt syrup (or less if you prefer)
3 Tbsp Carob powder
1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl leaving the baking powder as the last ingredient then add it and mix through thoroughly. Place the sticky brownie dough into a baking mould lined with baking paper, and pop it in the oven to bake for 20 mins (or till a knife comes out clean) - be careful not to overcook it as the centre will go dry and brownies are best kept semi-fudgy in the middle! Serve warm with a dollop of cold coconut ice-cream!
