This recipe is a little bit of a play on my Triple Chocolate Protein brownies! Candied walnuts are my latest obsession…! They are phenomenal on top of salads as well!

2 large eggs 1 1/2 cup almond butter 3/4 cup agave nectar 1 tsp of vanilla extract 1/2 cup cacao powder 1 tsp baking powder 75g of dark chocolate 1/2 cup of walnuts 1/4 cup of honey
Preheat your oven to 180°c/356°F. Combine all of the ingredients bar the honey, chocolate and walnuts in your mixer. Chop 50g of the chocolate into small chunks and half of the walnuts, and add to your mixture. Place the mixture in a silicone or parchment lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. In the mean time place the remaining walnuts in a small pan with the honey and heat until the honey starts to bubble. Place the walnuts on a piece of parchment and allow to cool until your brownies are fully cooked. Test to see if it is fully cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean its good to go! If not return to the oven for another few minutes and check again. Remove from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool. Melt the remaining dark chocolate and decorate the brownies with the candied walnuts before cutting into brownies. Serve and enjoy!
