The Healthier Mocha Brownie recipe

Hi everyone,

I’ve been trying to cut down on junk food so I’ve been trying to look for a cleaner version of a brownie. I have created a brownie that is a chocolate fudge slice/brownie hybrid. It has hints of hazelnut in the base, which makes it so much more delicious, almost like you’re eating a choc and Nutella treat. The recipe I have created was inspired by Luke and Scott’s chocolate slice from their book, Clean Living Cookbook: Delicious Paleo Food to Help You Change Your Life. Recipe can be found below.





  • 1/3 cup Cacao and Hazelnut spread (you can also use any other nut spread e.g. peanut butter or almond)
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut oil, melted
  • 150g almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon Cacao powder (or regular cocoa powder)
  • 1 tablespoon Rice malt syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee
  • pinch of salt


  • 12 dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

 Top layer (Optional):

  • 1 tablespoon Coconut oil
  • ½ tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • ½ tablespoon Maple syrup
  • Handful of Cacao nibs (to scatter on the top)


  1. Place all of the base ingredients into a food processor until everything is well combined. Spoon into a greased and lined 18cm x 18cm brownie tin and pack it down firmly. Stick it into the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Place all of the dates and cocoa powder into the food processor until mixture is smooth. It will form a smooth thick clump when ready. Smooth this mixture onto the base evenly.
  3. Mix the cacao powder, maple syrup and coconut oil together. Pour on top of the brownie. Sprinkle the cacaco nibs on top and set in the freezer for 30-60mins before serving. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
