Berry and chunky chocolate slice

Not too sweet but super fudgy, this slice is like a flour-free brownie except that it’s packed with nut protein for goodness! All the berries and bits of chocolate make this an irresistible treat.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup nut butter (see tip)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 130 gram dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh berries – we used raspberries, blackberries and blueberries

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 160ºC, fan bake. Line a swiss roll tin, or similar, with baking paper.
  • 2
    In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, nut butter, maple syrup and coconut sugar until mixed well. Fold in the baking soda, 3/4 of the chopped chocolate and half of the fruit.
  • 3
    Pour the batter into the lined tin and sprinkle the remaining chocolate and fruit over top. Press in slightly.
  • 4
    Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until golden and puffed up and the centre has lost its batter look and taken on more of a cake look.
  • 5
    Cool in the tin before turning out and cutting into squares.

Notes

Making your own nut butter is easy if you have a blender or food processor: To make a cup, place about 200g roasted nuts (cashew, almond, hazelnuts, etc) into a blender and process until the nuts release their oils and form a butter. It can take 5-7 minutes of blending.
