This amazing healthy brownie recipe is the brain child of the talented Roz Purcell. When she told me about the ingredients, I was skeptical but let me tell you, these give traditional brownies a run for their money!

To make the white chocolate chips, melt the cacao butter and mix with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is smooth and forms a thick liquid.
Pour onto a tray and place in the freezer until hard (20-30 min) Once hard, chop into chunks.
To make the brownies, preheat the oven to 180ºC/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
Place all the brownie ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth, and a wet dough consistency forms. Stir in the chocolate chips and spoon into a lined baking tin.
Bake for 25 minutes, depending on thickness (mine were roughly 1.1/2″ thick). Leave to sit aside in the tin for 10 minutes white preparing the frosting.
To make the frosting, add everything into a food processor until smooth. Remove the brownie from the tin, spread the frosting on top before cutting & devouring!

    These brownies are very good taste and texture wise– it’s definitely not just for people who like “healthy” tasting desserts. The frosting didn’t really work for me, but I did substitute lemon juice for a small amount of coconut vinegar so that may have been my fault…

    That being said I think these brownies stand well (they do a hint of banana flavor occasionally, but I’m not sure if it’s because I know it’s there) without the frosting! Will be making and sharing again!

    Also, I thought in the video there was some sort of nut butter in the frosting, but the ingredient list did not include that.
