Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 100g dark chocolate (70 - 80% Cacao, according to taste)
  • 50g organic butter or vegan margarine (I use half and half)
  • 100g rice malt syrup
  • 50g coconut sugar or alternative dry sugar
  • 2 free range eggs (medium to large)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla paste (or half a vanilla pod)
  • 45g almond meal
  • 20g lupin flour
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • pinch of salt
  1. Melt chocolate with butter/margarine in a double boiler or carefully in the microwave. Set aside to cool.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 160C (fan-forced) or 330F.
  3. Place rice malt syrup and other sugar, and vanilla paste in Thermomix bowl (or regular mixing bowl or other food processor). Place one egg in bowl and mix on Speed 3 for a few seconds. Place second egg in bowl and mix again for a few seconds on Speed 3. It is important to not over-process so please mix appropriately for other methods.
  4. Add cooled chocolate mixture to eggs and sugar and combine gently (Speed 2 for a few seconds for Thermomix).
  5. Add almond meal, lupin flour, cacao powder and salt to TMX bowl. Combine gently on Speed 2 for a couple of seconds. Alternatively, use a spatula to fold mixture by hand.
  6. Pour brownie mixture into a brownie pan line with baking paper. If there is not enough mixture, allow to pool in the centre. No need to spread out.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes. If a knife or skewer comes out from centre of brownie clean, remove from oven.
