Are you ready for a little bit of unconventional health-inspired rocky road brownies? Everyone wants more of the good stuff and these are proudly named ‘bircher’ brownies due to their nutritious additions, including dried fruits, nuts, seeds and oats.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients until smooth. This includes the nut butter, coconut oil (soft at room temperature) and maple syrup.
Sieve in the raw cacao powder and combine, again ensuring the batter is lump-free.
Add the dried fruits, seeds, nuts and salt, then mix well.
Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray approx 8 x 8 inches and freeze for 4 hours before slicing into 16 treat-sized squares.
Keep in the fridge and eat within 5 days. If you want to keep these for longer, they will freeze for many weeks, so just defrost at room temperature for 20 minutes before eating.RawGluten Free
