I started making these for Jared to replace his favorite store bought (and sugar laden!) bar and they’re now a staple in the house. (Disclaimer: He was happy to do the…
Paleo Chocolate Brownie Hearts with Cacao Nibs and Rose Petals
1 cup soft dates
2 tbsp raw honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup almond meal
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 oz good quality extra dark chocolate (like this one from Nohmad Snack Company!)
2 tbsp cacao nibs
2 tbsp dried edible rose petals
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a food processor blend the soft (soak them in a little hot water then drain, if needed) pitted dates until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Then add in the soft coconut oil and blend again.
One at a time add in the eggs, blending them in. Then add in all the dry ingredients and pulse until combined.
Transfer the batter into a lined 5×7 pan and place in the oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until it is juuust springy to the touch then allow to cool in the pan. When the brownie is completely cool, turn it out into a chopping board so that the under side is now on top. This will give you clean, flat tops to the hearts. Now take a heart cutter and careful cut out hearts. My cutter gave me 6. Melt the chocolate by breaking it into pieces in a small bowl and placing it over a pan of simmering water. (Double boiler style). Stir as it’s melting and then dip the hearts top down into the melted chocolate and smooth it over with a knife. Let it drip down the sides if it does. Then lick the knife 😉
Before the chocolate sets sprinkle the cacao nibs and rose petals over the top then leave to set. Enjoy with someone you love!
First up a little sidenote: I thought it would be fun to make these in a skillet too, and then got totally carried away looking at skillets… it happens to me often 😉…
