After hanging out with Tim from Take Three For The Sea and talking about sustainability and our love for the ocean it was time to cook with one of the most sustainable ingredients i know of HEMP.
Hemp is one of my new favourite ingredients. It’s packed with omega threes, protein and fibre plus its great for the environment and it tastes amazing.
The secret to my my raw chocolate hemp brownie are mixing through Aussie Hemp seeds and soaking dates in good quality quality rum (Reserved small Batch Bundaberg) for next level flavour. This recipe is so simple to make – no baking, no mess – just nutrient rich ingredients mixed together, set in the fridge and topped with a raw chocolate drizzle – YUM !!!

1 cup almond meal
½ cup hemp protein powder Hemple
1 ½ cups dates pitted
½ cup 100% cocao
1 Lemon rind only
3 tbs spiced rum Bundegerg Small Batch
1 vanilla bean
2 tablespoons mixed nuts and goji berries
2 tablespoons cocoa nibs
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup 100% cocoa
2 tbs maple syrup
1/2 tsp lavender leaves (optional) chopped
Line a 20 cm (8 inch) square cake tin with baking paper. Soak the dates in the Bundegerg Small Batch for at least 10 minutes, then place into a food processor with the hemp seeds and process until puréed and combined.
Add the almond meal, cacao, vanilla seeds and lemon zest. Process until combined and sticky. Transfer to a bowl and fold through the macadamias and cocoa nibs. Spoon into the prepared tin and smooth the surface. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, until firm, or place into the freezer for 15 minutes if you’re short on time.
To make the topping, gently heat the coconut oil with the lavender in a saucepan, then remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes to infuse. Sift in cacao powder then add the maple syrup and mix until combined and smooth.
Pour the topping onto the brownie slab and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Cut into squares to serve. Garnish with a sprinkle of bee pollen and some fresh lavender flowers or rose petals, if using.
