Tigernut Brownie Slice (Vegan, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Nut-free)

My latest idea was to try some kind of cake. Turns out it is the perfect brownie recipe. When I say perfect, I mean it has that super delicious, fudgy texture that only a brownie slice seems to have. At the same time it is perfectly moist, soft and slightly crumbly. And all that without any nuts or added oil/fat.

Servings 1 20cm x 20cm tray


  • 20cm x 20cm tray
  • highspeed blender


  • 105 g tigernut flour
  • 140 g dates pitted and diced
  • 375 ml water
  • 60 g FAIR-TRADE cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium fiber husk
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-2 pinches salt optional
  • 70 g chocolate drops if desired


  • Soak tigernut flour, dates and water for at least a few hours prior to blending and baking (I soak them overnight).
  • Preheat oven to 200°C (top-/bottom heat). Sift cocoa into a bowl, add psyllium fiber husk, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
  • Blend tigernut flour, dates and water until smooth. If it gets warm while blending, let cool down a little.
  • Add mixture to bowl with dry ingredients, add half the chocolate drops and stir just long enough to combine.
  • Line baking tray with baking paper and spread dough evenly. Drop remaining chocolate drops on top.
  • Place in oven and bake covered with a sheet of baking paper or aluminum foil (which can be reused several times) for 35 to 45 minutes. Test with a wooden skewer. If it comes out clean, the brownie slice is ready.


Enjoy! :)
