Jess Sepel’s Healthy Breakfast Brownies
This makes 8 big brownies. I recommend doubling the recipe for a bigger batch.
- 1 cup Walnuts
- 2 heaped tbsp. cacao
- 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
- a pinch of sea salt
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ½ cup rice puffs/quinoa puffs
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp Ground flaxseed
- ¼ -1/3 cup filtered water – texture should be moist and chunky – not runny.
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp cacao, sprinkles
shake of cinnamon
Add all of the above ingredients to the food processor (except the topping ingredients)
Mixture should become firm but soft – sticky/doughy texture.
Line a small square dish/tray/bread tin with baking paper and press the mixture in firmly to form a square shape.
Spread the almond butter over the mixture and then sprinkle the cacao and cinnamon over.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
Take out the fridge and cut into bars/brownie slices
