Recipe type: Confection
Serves: 12 squares
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (for added texture)
  • a dash of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (adjust for the level of chocolate-ness you want!)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (more if necessary)
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (more or less depending on taste)
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used a combination of soy & coconut)
  • 3-4 tbsp macadamia nut meal
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips + a dab of vegan butter, all melted
  • Optional: toppings such as coconut flakes or dried goji berries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread a thin layer of vegan butter or olive oil in a small baking pan.
  2. Combine the flours, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, chia seeds, cocoa powder and coconut sugar in a large bowl and mix well. If you don't have or want to use oat flour, just omit it and add an extra 1/4 cup of brown rice flour instead.
  3. After I melted my butter, I added the peanut butter to it and whisked it together to help it soften before adding it to the dry mixture.
  4. What is macadamia nut meal you ask? I took raw macadamia nuts, soaked them in water overnight, then drained and rinsed them. I put them in the blender with some fresh filtered water and blended until it was as smooth as possible. Then I put it through a fine strainer to separate the milk from the leftover nut pieces. Bam! Homemade macadamia nut milk 👌 plus the leftover nut meal which is also tasty and perfect for baking.
  5. Add your butter/peanut butter mixture, vanilla extract, non dairy milk and nut meal to the dry ingredients. Stir well and adjust ingredient amounts if needed. Meaning, if it's dry add more milk, if it's too thin add more peanut butter or flour. You get the picture!
  6. Pour batter into baking pan and put in oven for about 10-15 mins.
  7. Melt some semisweet chocolate chips with a little vegan butter and smooth over the finished cake like frosting. Sprinkle coconut flakes and dried goji berries on top for extra fanciness.
