When you break down the ingredients list, it’s pretty much as healthy for you as making a really big banana, date and cacao smoothie for breakfast, and you add a tin of black beans as well. Add the fact that you are eating only one or two pieces at a time *ahem* and there really should be no guilt when consuming this, whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or just as a good old-fashioned snack.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 spotty bananas, peeled
1 tin black beans
6 medjool dates, stones removed
125g cacao powder
60g buckwheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
50ml coconut or olive oil
50ml nut milk, water, orange juice or espresso
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
large handful pecans, walnuts or vegan chocolate chips

For the topping

Quantity Ingredient
chopped pistachios or other nuts, (optional)
sea salt flakes, to garnish
edible flower petals of your choice, to decorate

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a brownie tray (or casserole dish) with baking parchment.
  2. Place everything, except the nuts, in your food processor and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary. Roughly chop the nuts, add to the food processor and blend just to combine (you still want the nuts to be chunky).
  3. Pour the mixture into your lined brownie tray, making sure you get all of the mix from under the blade of the food processor. Smooth down the mixture using the back of a spoon, then lick the spoon clean! Sprinkle the chopped pistachios, if using, and salt flakes on top.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting and eating (if you can). For that extra wow-factor, sprinkle over some edible flower petals.
