Brownie Twist

Who loves BROWNIES?!?!

Usually when I am making a brownie, I like it to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
But this time, I have decided to create a recipe that uses superfood and healthier ingredients without taking away the chocolatey-ness from it. This brownie is very rich in chocolate because of the raw cacao.

Here's what you need:
75g butter
1/2 cup raw cacao
2 eggs
1/2 cup palm sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
almost 1/2 cup (40g) hazelnut meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 pkt (1/2 cup) white chocolate bits

Here's what you need to do:
1) Preheat oven to 160C fan-forced, line base of a loaf tin with baking paper.
2) Melt butter and stir in raw cacao, cool slightly and beat in eggs until a smooth paste. Stir in palm sugar and vanilla.
3) Whisk hazelnut meal and baking powder together, add to mixture and stir until just mixed. Stir through white chocolate bits. Pour into tin.
4) Bake for 15-20 minutes. The cake will wobble a little in the centre. As it cools slightly, it will set more.
5) Cut into slices when warm, serve warm!

*healthier option - you can substitute the white chocolate with nuts (chopped) in the same amount
* gluten-free option - use gluten-free baking powder

Happy Brownie! :)
