Vegan Sugarfree Chocolate Wholemeal Brownie/ Slice

Wish you all a very happy and abundant 2017! Holiday season and merry-making continues around the world while 2017 arrives and settles in. Traditional chocolate brownies are full of processed ingredients, sugar and white flour making them not particularly healthy. My wholemeal chocolate brownie or, Slice recipe as, it is referred to in Australia uses no sugar and is ready under an hour including baking time in a hot oven. I’ve used walnuts this time around, but omit the nuts and substitute carob pieces or, dark chocolate chips for a nut free version. Perfect for that quick chocolate fix when needed or, unexpected guests too!
