For the base:

  • 100g hazelnut meal
  • 130g almond meal
  • 150g medjool dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 50g no added sugar dark chocolate
  • 1tb tablespoon coconut oil

For the Topping:

  • 240g cashews - soaked in water and drained
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon beetroot powder - beetroot powder is optional and helps add colour naturally.
  • 10 raspberries
  • 300ml (2 cans) coconut cream  thick component - to get the thick component, place cans in the fridge for two hours before use. The top will set leaving the liquid underneath. Scrape off the top thick component.
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil - melted
  • Rosewater - Start with just 1/4 teaspoon of rosewater. Add an additional 1/4 teaspoon at a time and taste to check intensity. 

Directions

  1. Line an 8 x 8 inch brownie tin.
  2. To make the base, place all base ingredients in a processor and blend until combined.
  3. Press into the lined brownie tin.
  4. To make the topping, place all topping ingredients into a processor and blend until combined. 
  5. Pour topping over the base and tap the tin on the bench to remove any air bubbles.
  6. Optional step: We melted some dark chocolate with coconut oil and drizzled this over the topping. Use a skewer to draw through the top at random to create a marbled effect.
  7. Place in the fridge to set overnight.
  8. Best kept in the fridge for up to one week.
