Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Line a 9 inch loaf tin with baking paper and lightly grease with spray oil.
  3. Blend together all ingredients in a Nutribullet, food processor or blender.
  4. Add mixture to the tin, spread evenly with the back of a spoon and bake for 15 - 20 minutes; test with a toothpick, I prefer them slightly under done and set in the fridge!
  5. Allow to cool fully before icing.
  6. Whisk together icing ingredients in a jug, spread over brownies and allow to set in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight. Slice into 8 brownies.
  7. Store in the fridge for up to one week in a sealed tight container or freeze for up to one month. These get even better after a day in the fridge!
