Chocolate cashew brownies – paleo & sugar free style!

I always need to have something sweet in the fridge. Life is no fun without treats! I am growing less fond of traditional sweetness, and rather enjoying the healthier ways of sugar free.

This is a bit experimental, surprise surprise, but I based this one around my other recipe for date, banana and almond slice. Again, quick and easy is my key in the kitchen at the moment, this definitely fits that category!

Paleo chocolate cashew brownies

20130213-145819.jpg

2 c almond meal
1/2 c desiccated coconut
3/4 c sultanas
3/4 c chopped cashews
1/2 c cocoa
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
3/4 c coconut oil
Vanilla
Honey

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

All wet ingredients go in a different bowl and mix with a beater until combined and a little fluffy.

Pour wet into dry, mix until just combined, pour in a tray and cook for about 20mins at 180degrees. Or 350 F for you folk in other lands.

They did come out a little bit crumbly, and I think that some yummy frosting would go on them very nicely. They are much better in the fridge, cold.

I’d also like to try putting fresh berries in..yummmmm! That might be more of a pudding…hmm stay tuned on that one!

Here’s a couple of recipes for frosting if you’d like to try 🙂 let me know!
