Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 1 tbsp Butter
    or oil, for greasing
  • 200 g Dark Chocolate
    chopped
  • 2 - Eggs
  • 1 tsp Gluten Free Baking Powder
  • 100 ml Greek Yoghurt
    to serve
  • 150 ml Maple Syrup
  • 4 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 50 g Roasted Buckwheat
    to serve
  • 2 - SuperValu Avocado
    ripe, peeled and stoned
  • 50 g SuperValu Ground Almonds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Grease a 19cm square baking tin and line with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water and allow to melt, but make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Alternatively, you could melt the chocolate in the microwave.
  3. Place the avocados and maple syrup in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Transfer to a large bowl, then stir in the melted chocolate, ground almonds and baking powder.
  4. Using a hand-held mixer, whisk the eggs until they’re really light, then gently fold into the other ingredients.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared tin. Use a spatula or spoon to smooth the surface, making sure to get the batter into each corner. Spoon the peanut butter over the top and use a skewer or the end of a spoon to swirl it into the batter to create a marbled effect.
  6. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until firm on top but slightly soft in the centre. Allow to cool, then cut into nine squares.
  7. Serve warm with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of roasted buckwheat on top.

Tip - If you prefer, replace the roasted buckwheat with finely chopped peanuts or the peanut butter with another nut butter of your choice. These are also delicious served with coconut frozen yogurt for a healthy dessert.
