Recipe created by: Jennifer Walter
  • 160 g raw dark chocolate
  • 8 Medjool dates
  • 200 g red kidney beans (canned, to save you some time)
  • 40 g walnut oil
  • 100 g maple syrup
  • 350 ml oat milk
  • Zest of 1/2 orange
  • 60 g buckwheat
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 70 g raw cacao powder
  • 80 g walnuts
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C and grease a rectangular brownie tin. Melt the raw dark chocolate. Fill a small saucepan with water and place a heat-proof bowl on top. Add the chocolate and slowly let melt over medium heat.


  2. In the meantime, take out your food processor and add the dates, canned beans (of course you can also use dried beans, this will just add loads of time on your end), maple syrup and walnut oil and blitz thoroughly. Add the melted chocolate and blitz again. 


  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the oat milk and the orange zest. Fold in the buckwheat flour, cacao powder and crushed walnuts. Fill into your prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes.
