Who can turn down a healthy brownie? Made with almond butter, cacao, baobab powder and chia seeds these chocolatey baobab brownies are bursting with healthy fats and fibre leaving you fuller for longer. That’s our 3pm snack time sorted!


1/4 cup chia seeds

3/4 cup water

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 1/2 cups medjool dates

1 cup almond butter

1/2 cup non-dairy milk

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup brown rice flour

1 tbsp Aduna Baobab Powder

Pinch of salt

1/2 to 3/4 cup Aduna Super-Cacao Powder


Preheat the oven to 175ºC/gas mark 4. In a mixing bowl, combine the chia seeds and the water and set aside to thicken for 15 minutes.

Add the melted coconut oil, Medjool dates, almond butter, non-dairy milk and maple syrup and blend all until smooth. Don’t worry if it’s not 100 per cent clump-free – a few little pieces of dates adds texture.

In a large bowl, combine the baking powder, brown rice flour, baobab powder, salt and cacao powder.

Pour the liquid mixture from the blender into the dry ingredients, along

with the soaked chia seeds and mix well.

Pour the brownie batter into a lined pan and bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until you can insert a knife into it and it comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
