Paleo chocolate brownies

Now it is not often that I suggest people indulge on treats such as brownies, but sometimes you just need to nourish your body with some soul food (Paleo of course).

Ingredients

1/2 cup raw organic cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda (Bob’s organic brand is Gluten free)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup organic almond meal
1/2 cup organic coconut nectar
1/4 cup organic, pasture fed butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup macadamias or any nut of your choice
3 medjool dates (seeds removed)
1 teaspoon vanilla powder (Herbie’s brand is great)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease an 8 x 8-inch pan with butter.
Add dry ingredients to a food processor and pulse to combine.
Add remaining ingredients and process until well combined. Spread batter in pan.
Bake 20-25 minutes, until set but still slightly moist in centre.

Serve with some fresh organic cream and strawberries.

The good thing about this recipe is it only makes a small portion. So by the time you share it around at home or at work, there wont be too much for you to indulge on.
