The packed lunches are challenging enough, but it's the after school hunger that I'm struggling to satiate. They are so hungry and so angry if I don't provide food the moment they leave the school gates! But I don't want them to fill up on rubbish, and I want them to still have an appetite for dinner. It needs to be something that they think is a treat, plus something that I'm am happy for them to eat. Last week, these amazing chocolate brownies were a big hit. My daughter, who always suspects I've hidden beetroot in anything chocolate, and claims not to like coconut, loved them!

100g dark cooking chocolate
3/4 cup coconut oil or butter
6 eggs
1 cup raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup sifted coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup pecans (optional)

Melt chocolate and coconut oil together.
Remove from heat, and mix in sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
Stir in remaining ingredients.
Spread into a lined slice tin.
Bake at 175 C for 30 minutes.
Cool and then cut into squares.


  1. Okay, I've made this twice now. And it is delicious.
    It's gonna get printed and put in the recipe folder now.
