  • Servings: 20-24 approx.

  • 50g Self-raising flour.
  • 50g Wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 x tsp baking soda
  • 1 x tsp Baking powder
  • 15g Cocoa powder
  • 150g Dark soft brown sugar
  • Grind of sea-salt
  • ½ x tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g Dark Chocolate
  • 75g Coconut oil
  • 21g ground flaxseed blended with 120g water
  • 200g Cauliflower florets
  • 120g Oat milk


  1. Place the cauliflower in a pot with the oat milk and poach gently for ten minutes until the cauliflower is cooked, set aside to cool.
  2. As the cauliflower is cooking, melt the chocolate & coconut oil in a glass bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water.
  3. In a separate bowl blend together the flours, baking powder, soda, sugar, and cocoa powder.
  4. Blend the cauliflower with a little extra oat milk, approx.,50g until silky smooth.
  5. Combine the cauliflower along with the flaxseed and stir into the flour mix. Finally, stir in the melted chocolate and coconut until you have a smooth batter consistency, adding a little more oat milk as required.
  6. Pour into your baking dish and place in a pre-heated oven @180c/gas 4 for 25 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

After allowing the brownies to cool completely, soak with 2xtbsp Irish whiskey, or your favourite liqueur. Roll into small spheres, place in the freezer for few minutes until set. Remove and dip in some melted chocolate- here I have used a mix of dark and milk- removing the truffles from the chocolate with a cocktail stick is handy – it is also a good idea to have a piece of polystyrene foam, so you can stick the cocktail stick in while the chocolate hardens-and if desired, decorate with sprinkles or finely chopped nuts, then place in the fridge to set.

These dark chocolate truffles have an unusal twist
