  • Combine the ground almonds, buckwheat flour and cacao powder in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse until they're broken down into small pieces, but not ground into a flour. Add them to the mixing bowl along with the chocolate pieces.
  • Add the coconut oil, pitted medjool dates, cashew butter, maple syrup and tea infused water to the food processor and blend until a smooth, creamy mixture forms.
  • Add this liquid mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and stir well.
  • Slowly pour in the almond milk, mixing as you do so. Then add a pinch of salt and the baking powder. Mix well until everything is fully combined.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and pour the brownie mixture into it, spreading evenly.
  • Place into the oven for 20 minutes, removing when you can poke a knife through the middle and it comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool for at least 20 minutes before slicing into squares. Decorate with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate and extra hazelnut pieces!
