Creative Nature Superfoods Collaboration

So this brand I have been enjoying for a while now, sprinkling their raw cacao into porridge, smoothies or using in my bakes. I love this brand as it allows me to bake naturally gluten free and vegan cakes! Since experimenting with vegan bakes I have used aquafaba and chia seeds as an egg alternative so when Creative Nature Superfoods were willing to provide me with a box of goodies I could not refuse! Cacao nibs, cacao powder, maca powder and chia seeds... the ultimate in healthy or naughty GF vegan bakes!

I am a sucker for chocolate and have such a sweet tooth, so to be able to whip up something quick and easy to take with me to work is great. Brownies, cookies and biscuits are a tea break essential!

I decided to use their products to make Brookies! Yes a cross between a brownie and cookie, because why should you have to choose between them?

This simple recipe is full of chocolate and is delish, just need a cuppa to go with it ;-)

Ingredients: (Makes around 16 Brookies)

  • 260g Self Raising Flour (I use Doves)

  • 30g Cacao

  • 30g Maca Powder

  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

  • 340g Caster Sugar

  • 75g Vegan Chocolate (I use Green & Blacks)

  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 60ml Veg Oil

  • 120ml Water

  • Chia Seeds

  • Coconut Oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a brownie tin with coconut oil.

  • Sift the flour, cacao, maca and baking powder into a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Mix all together.

  • Add a tablespoon of chia seeds.. or more if you want an extra crunch.

  • Melt the chocolate and add to the mixture along with the vanilla extract.

  • Add the oil and water to the mixture. (Use a little more if the mixture is too dry).

  • Bring everything together then transfer into a brownie tin to bake.

  • Bake for 30-35 mins. You are looking for a crunchy topping with a fudge like gooey centre.
