Chocolate Brownie

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp coconut aroma

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 coconut sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

3 fresh figs, washed and chopped

3/4 cup Callebaut 70% dark chocolate callets (chips)

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted

Preheat the oven to 180° C. In a food blender, blend the black beans with all the wet ingredients (except the eggs and the figs). When the mixture is smooth, add the eggs and blend until combined. Sift together cocoa powder

and baking powder. Then add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix until combined. Add pumpkin seeds, chocolate callets and chopped figs and mix. Pour in a prepared tray and bake for 20 minutes. Cool down, cut into blocks and store in an airtight container.


Pickled Figs

Cut each fig into 6 segments. Place the figs in a container with the wine. LEAVE FOR HOW LONG? This gets plated on top of the brownie.

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup maple syrup

Combine everything except the coconut cream in a medium saucepan, bring to a gentle boil and stir frequently. Add coconut cream and turn down to simmer
