This one came into existence at the Food Show from the request of a charming vanilla salesman, so therefore I have named it after him as it certainly became very very popular with everyone!
As usual it’s super simple and super healthy and for those who can’t eat eggs, it’s just perfect. If you want to easily whip up this deliciousness that will WOW your friends and family, grab your Chocolate Baking Mix here (they certainly won’t be able to tell its healthy)
1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Prepare your chia or flaxseed egg by mixing with the water and letting sit for 10 min. You can speed up the process if you use warm water. * If you use gelatin then warm the oil, maple syrup and gelatine together for 5 min over medium low heat.
3. Mix everything together except the walnuts, and combine well
4. Mix walnuts in
5. Line brownie or slice tin and then squish the mixture in with spatula
Bake for 25-30 min. It will be bubbling most likely and the edges should be crisp. Remove to cake rack. If you are using hazelnut pieces, sprinkle them on top as soon as comes out of oven and gently press down.
The slice will harden as it cools, and the longer you cooked it for the crisper it will be. (I nearly burnt the last one I made and it turned out the best)
Stores best in fridge or freezer
