NBF Mega Brownies

Brownies are something that pops up a lot on the blog and for a very good reason. I might have a brownie addiction! I’m constantly experimenting with new recipes because you can never have enough. Hopefully you can find a brownie recipe on my blog that suits your taste buds, budget, your diet and what you have  your kitchen press! I had a nice little stash of Dr.Coys chocolate bars in my press so, I used them in this recipe and they were awesome, thanks to the hint of raspberry & coconut in them.

Serves 12

Cooks in 120 Minutes


  • 70g chocolate – I used Dr.Coys raspberry & also their coconut flavour for a separate batch!
  • 60g almond butter
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 18g coconut flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp xantham gum/guar gum/gluten free baking powder




  • 70g chocolate
  • 3 tbsp coconut cream (you can buy this in small 80ml tins or you can use 1 can full fat coconut milk and separate your self) – guidelines below


  1. Preheat oven 180°C
  2. Brownie Tin – 6×4 “
  3. Start by Melting the coconut oil and whisking the eggs, place to one side.
  4. Melt the chocolate in a stainless steel or glass bowl over boiling water, add in the almond butter and combine into a creamy smooth sauce. Remove from the heat.
  5. Next stir in the melted coconut oil, eggs, maple, vanilla and baking powder into a smooth batter.
  6. Lastly stir in the coconut flour- don’t over mix just enough that there is none still visible.
  7. Pour into a lined brownie tin.
  8. Bake for 22-23 minutes until firm on top but nice and moist in the middle. Let the brownies cool for 5-10 minutes.
  9. For the Ganache, if you are using the can of coconut milk- place in the freezer for 30 minutes or fridge for 1.5 hours until the liquid separates.
  10. Once you open the can there should be a hard white cream and then a liquid- take 3 tbsp. of the hard cream for the ganache (don’t throw away the rest of the can you could use this in smoothies or to make overnight oats)
  11. Melt the chocolate and stir in the coconut cream -the chocolate will thicken.
  12. Spread over the brownies and let set.
