The Best Chocolate Brownie Recipe

A good chocolate brownie recipe is something you want to cherish! I've been working on a recipe for the past 2 years and made a million versions that just weren't 'quite right.' However, I've finally stumbled on a recipe that gives just the right amount of gooey, chocolate-y squishy-ness. Not only is this recipe the best, its also dangerously quick to make, uses no refined sugar and is gluten free. As I said. Its a recipe to cherish.


Makes one small foil tray (11 x 18cm) but just increase the batch to make more


50g dark chocolate

50g butter

50g ground almonds

4 tbsp maple syrup 

1 egg, beaten


Preheat the oven to 200oC.

Place the dark chocolate and butter in a heat proof bowl and melt over a saucepan of simmering water- stirring occasionally. Remove and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine the almonds and maple syrup. Once cool add the chocolate mix followed by the egg. Pour into your prepared tray and place in the oven for 15minutes. Remove and allow to cool before placing in the fridge for 30 minutes before slicing up and serving.
