Gluten Free Brownies:

  • 1 cup macadamia nut butter*
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao power
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 6 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup macadamias

Dairy Free Chocolate Ganache:

  • 100 g your favourite dark chocolate (sugar free, dairy free)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk solids*
  • 2 heaped tbsp macadamia nut butter
  • 4 tsp coconut flour


  • To make macadamia nut butter, process raw macadamia nuts (approx. 1 - 2 cups) in a food processor to make a buttery paste. 
  • In a mixing bowl combine almond meal, cacao powder and coconut flour. 
  • In a small saucepan heat macadamia nut butter, rice malt syrup and coconut oil to melt. Stir together to combine and add to dry mixture. 
  • Combine well and transfer to a small lined baking tray. Press firmly to mould into tray. Transfer to fridge for 1 hour to firm. 
  • Meanwhile, in a heat proof bowl, melt chocolate over boiling water. 
  • Add macadamia butter to melted chocolate and mix through. 
  • Add coconut milk solids and mix through. Add coconut flour and combine well. 
  • Spread ganache over brownies. 
  • Chop macadamias and sprinkle on top of ganache. Transfer back into fridge for ganache to firm up. Slice with a clean, wet knife. Keep refrigerated. 



*To make coconut solids, place a can of full fat coconut milk in fridge overnight. Scoop out coconut milk solids that have risen to the top (keep liquid for another use such as smoothies/ curries).You can make this into brownies with a choc mint icing by using a mint chocolate bar.
