Prunes add a bold richness to this brownie. Surrounded in chocolate, they are delightfully chewy.

1 cup Australian pitted prunes (200gm)
200gm chocolate
cup coconut milk (or coconut cream)
cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup brown rice flour
cup cocoa

pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, lightly beaten


Preheat oven to 170 degrees and grease and line with baking paper a 20cm square baking tin.

Pour boiling water over the prunes to cover, and soak for 5 mins, then drain and chop.

Place the chocolate and the coconut oil together in a large bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and melt together. Add the sugar and stir till dissolved. Ad the vanilla and the coconut milk and stir well.

Fold in the flour and cocoa and salt in with the chocolate mix and stir until combined, then gently stir in the egg.

Pour into a prepared tray and bake for 20 mins.

Cool in the tin, then turn out and cut.
