Chocolate and raspberry. This decadent combination is perfect for a dessert and what better than a brownie. But to make it suitable for most diets, this time we are going to do without the egg or butter and we are going to use only plant-based ingredients so that vegans can also enjoy this incredible vegan brownie.
On the other hand, we have also decided to dispense with refined sugars and, on this occasion, we have used date paste, since this ingredient naturally sweetens and provides a large amount of healthy fiber. All in all, a decadent dessert that can be made more often and enjoyed guilt-free. Let’s start with the recipe!
Ingredients to make the brownie
200 g frozen raspberries (weighed before thawing)
200 g of dark chocolate drops (more than 70% cocoa)
50 g cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking soda
250 g of oat flour
2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil (Arbequina)
75 g of date paste
Pinch of salt
Brownie making process
To start, preheat the oven to 180ºC. Next, defrost the raspberries in a container in the microwave for about 2 minutes, or in a pot over high heat until they are tempered to reduce the heat.
Add 180 g of dark chocolate drops to melt with the raspberries. Help yourself with a fork to mash and integrate both ingredients. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything well.
PRO TIP! Date paste is a mixture of pitted dates and blend with water, while oat flour can be substituted for the same weight of oats. If you wish, you can integrate all the ingredients with the help of a blender or a food processor.
The result will be a thick dough that you should transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper, or spread with a little extra virgin olive oil to make it easier to unmold once the brownie is baked.
Spread the remaining chocolate drops on top to decorate, then place the baking pan in the preheated oven. Bake the brownie for 35-40 minutes making sure the top doesn’t burn.
Remove the pan from oven and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting and eating. The result will be a decadent brownie with an intense chocolate and spectacular raspberry flavor, suitable for all types of diners.
