Makes 12 squares

Takes 20 minutes to make & 2-3 hours to set

You need a grinder & a food processor

I won’t even try and describe how good these are! Eat them and you’ll be left virtually speechless, the only words you’ll be able to utter are “mmmmm” and “wow.”

  • Kate's Baobab Brownies2 cups (200 g) almonds
  • 1 cup (125 g) cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup (50 g) raisins
  • 1/2 cup (50 g) cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp Baobab powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water

In a food grinder, grind up the almonds to a flour. Remove them and grind the cacao nibs. Put the ground almonds, nibs and raisins in the food processor and process until the raisins are broken down. Then add in the cacao powder, baobab and cinnamon and process once more until it’s evenly mixed. Next, add your olive oil and agave, and process while the mixture starts to get sticky. Pour the water in slowly while the food processor is on, and the mixture should become a dough.

Press your dough into a square baking tray lined with greaseproof paper or a silicon mold. Leave it in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours. When you’re ready, cut it into squares, 3 x 4, or 4 x 4 if you prefer smaller fingers. It will keep well in the fridge in an airtight container for about two weeks.
