I got the urge to do some Sunday baking recently and knew that my new workmates would appreciate a sweet treat to kickstart their Monday, so whipped up these hazelnut coffee brownies! The combo of dark chocolate & coffee means they are guaranteed to make your morning an excellent one!
There are lots of recipes out there for raw brownies however when I went to make myself a batch I decided I needed to tweak things up to include some nuts at the end to give the brownie a bit of crunch. I’ve always been funny about texture in food – for a long time I didn’t eat avocado because I couldn’t stand the texture, and similarly I really like my food to have a combination of some smooth bits and some crunchy bits which is why I am always throwing nuts into salads, stir fries and the like. I really like how this turned out, it’s a good mix of ‘cake’ like texture with some delicious crunch thrown in. All that AND it’s raw, vegan, sugar free and healthy. It’s too good to be true (almost!).
