Made with almond butter, cacao, baobab powder and chia seeds these chocolatey treats are bursting with healthy fats and fibre leaving you fuller for longer. 4pm, tea time snack time sorted with panache!


1 tbsp  Aduna Baobab Powder
1/2 – 3/4 cup  Aduna Super Cacao Powder
1 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cups Medjool dates
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 175C. 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% smooth – a few little pieces of dates adds texture!
In a large bowl, combine the baking powder, brown rice flour, baobab, 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 (approx 2″ thick is ideal) and bake for approx. 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 invite our friends round for a tea party with baobab brownies and seriously good organic tea!
