Brownie & Slices

Avocado Chocolate Brownie

Now I love a good chocolate brownie and so I was quite eager to try this version using avocado. Too be honest I wasn’t expecting much but wow, if I hadn’t of known I would of thought it was a typical delicious unhealthy brownie but this baby is a great alternative. It ticks a number of health requirements including Gluten & Dairy Free, Paleo and even Vegan. I will be sure to be making this again.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Bars

I stumbled across this recipe when a colleague recommended Detoxinista as a cool health conscious website. As my love of peanut butter and chocolate is no secret I thought I would give it a try. So glad I did as oh my it is amazing! Definitely not something you can have all the time but in terms of a treat this is one of the healthier ones. It is also Gluten and can be Dairy Free.

Coffee, Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Caramel Slice

Dish would have to be one of my favourite NZ food magazines. I snapped up this recipe from one of their recent posts and it is to die for. Created by Sarah Tuck of From My Kitchen this slice needs to be handy the next time you have friends over for coffee. Mum and Dad are visiting and they have given it the thumbs up… so moorish!

White Chocolate and Raspberry Slice

White chocolate and raspberry is a popular flavour match and loved by many. This slice is a little creation of mine that I made with some leftover ingredients. The use of freeze-dried raspberries adds a burst of flavour and jazz’s up a basic no bake slice. This recipe works well doubled if you have a few mouths to feed.

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

There is a little story behind these brownies. A great friend of mine, Izaak is reknown for his rich melt in your mouth brownies. I have been unable to twist his arm (yet) to get his version but this one is pretty close. It is rich, smooth and absolute heaven. You can opt to leave the chocolate chunks out if you wish, the brownie works either way.
