Introduction

These are very easy to make no bake brownies. You can adjust the ingredients to what you have available from substituting walnuts for almonds or brazil nuts or adding a few cooked chestnuts. Also adding raisins or dried apricots or dried cherries to the dates. The quantities stated are also a rough guideline which you can instinctively play with. They are so healthy you could eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner.

  • Then make the icing by melting some coconut oil over a bowl of boiled water. Add cacao powder, honey and chopped avocado. Blend with a hand blender.
