Coconut and Cacao Brownie

Yes this is another brownie recipe from me! I make so many brownies for myself that I enjoy changing up the flavour combinations.

Coconut is my current flavour obsession and these coconut brownies are super gooey and taste unreal!

Coconut Cacao Brownies

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 330 grams Pumpkin Puree* or butternut squash puree*
  • 60 grams coconut oil
  • 80 grams Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 50 ml coconut milk
  • 100 grams Yogurt (I use dairy-free)
  • 80 grams Cacao Powder
  • 25 grams Coconut Flour
  • 65 grams Rolled Oats
  • 2 Eggs (Beaten)
  • 50 grams Sweetener/Stevia (I use Truvia)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. In a bowl whisk the egg and add the sweetener and apple sauce and mix well.
  3. Then add the pumpkin and yogurt and mix.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave
  5. Next add all the dry ingredients (oats, coconut flour, cacao powder and baking soda) and mix thoroughly, adding the almond milk gradually. I only add a little baking soda to this recipe because it gives a fudgier texture.
  6. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and pour in the mixture, making sure it’s even and level.
  7. Then bake for 17-20 minutes, add a few minutes for more well done brownies and be prepared to adjust for your particular oven.
