Brownies with Brazil Nuts (Vegan, Gluten-free)

Brownies with Brazil Nuts (Vegan, Gluten-free)

I have spent some time to create a recipe for brownies. Now, I have finally succeeded! I’m very happy about it! They are rich, they are sweet, they taste like the real thing! :) And they still are vegan and gluten-free – hard to believe :)

I’ve used Brazil nuts but I can imagine other nuts would create a great flavor also.

For a 27×17 cm tray you’ll need:

1 1/4 cup (180g) Brazil nuts (soaked in filtered water for a at least 6 hours hours and then rinsed)
1 cup (130g) brown rice flour
1 pinch salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (55g) FAIR TRADE cocoa powder
3/4 cup (120g) chocolate drops or chunks
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup (70g) dates + 1/2 cup water
1/3 cup water

For the glazing:
1 cup (140g) dates
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/8 cup (30g) coconut cream (melted)
1/2 cup (55g) FAIR TRADE cocoa powder

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 190°C

For the dough, mix the brown rice flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder in a medium sized bowl.

Grind the Brazil nuts to rough crumbles. Don’t worry about the occasional bigger bits.

Blend the dates with 1/2 cup water to a fine cream (my Personal Blender works well for this job).

Prepare the baking tray with baking paper.

Add date cream, banana cream, ground Brazil nuts, chocolate drops and 1/3 cup water to the flour-mixture and mix well. Don’t stir too long so the dough will rise better.

Transfer the dough mix to the baking tray and spread evenly.

Bake in the oven for approx. 30 minutes (depending on oven type). If the top gets too dry, cover with a loosely placed sheet of aluminum paper.

Take out of the tray and place on cooling rack to let cool down properly before adding the glaze.

For the chocolate-glaze, blend the dates with water, coconut oil and coconut cream to a fine paste. Add cocoa powder and blend well.

Spread glazing evenly on top and let then cool down to set.
