Ingredients

  • 200 g peanut butter + 2 tbsp for drizzling
  • 200 g coconut or brown sugar
  • 150 g almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200 g dark chocolate chips
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 120 g cocoa powder
  • 250 ml milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180℃.
  • In a bowl mix the peanut butter, sugar and flax eggs.
  • Heat the milk and chocolate chips until the chocolate has melted and fold into the peanut butter mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated (this should look like thick melted chocolate).
  • Fold in the almond flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and mix until a smooth batter is achieved.
  • Place into a square tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven (a toothpick should come out with a little batter that isn’t too runny).
  • Allow to cool to room temperature before cutting into chunks.

Notes

  • Ground chia seeds can be used instead of flax seed
  • Almond flour can be partly or fully replaced with coconut flour, oat flour or other gluten-free flour mix. Wheat flour can also be used, but this will not be gluten-free
