  • These brazil nut brownies are free from refined sugar, made with plain chocolate, cocoa powder and honey for natural sweetness. They are simple to make, but have been given a healthy makeover, using coconut oil, wholemeal spelt flour and Brazil nuts, which are a rich source of selenium, which boosts your immune system and helps heal wounds. But these better-for-you brownies taste great too, and no one will even know the difference. Trying to cut down on sugar? Make a batch of these to try.


    • 100g coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
    • 125g plain dark chocolate with no added sugar, broken into pieces
    • 100ml milk
    • 175g honey
    • 50g cocoa powder
    • 3 eggs
    • 150g wholemeal spelt flour
    • 1tsp baking powder
    • 30g Brazil nuts, roughly chopped


    • Grease a 18cm x 18cm baking tin and line with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 190C, gas 5.

    • Place the coconut oil, chocolate, milk and honey in a saucepan and heat very gently, stirring, until melted.

    • Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder, then leave to cool for a few minutes.

    • Beat in the eggs, then fold in the flour, baking powder and Brazil nuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.

    • Bake on the oven for 35-40 minutes until just set. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely. Cut into 12 squares to serve.
