Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies

These no-bake Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies taste delicious and are great as a healthy sweet treat or dessert. I made them for the first time during our Mindfulness Retreat in Friesland last weekend.

I found this recipe for Raw Hazelnut Chai Brownies on Green Kitchen Stories and I decided to tweak the recipe a little and give my own twist to these easy-to-make brownies. By adding ground hazelnuts to the recipe and more cacao powder they become more firm in texture, almost like a fudge, and have a stronger chocolate flavour. Read More
