Prune Brownies

Here I’m just tweaking my chocolate brownie recipe I posted previously.

Less sugar to be made up with the sweetness of the prunes and a

tad more healthy. I’ve also swapped out the melted butter/margarine

for olive oil in this recipe but you could use liquid coconut oil if you wish.

Prune Brownies

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 22 minutes
Total Time 27 minutes
Course Cakes, Slices & Breads
Servings 9 Squares


  • 1/3 cup Olive oil
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla essence
  • 10 pitted Prunes
  • 1/2 cup Self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa powder (slightly rounded)
  • 2/3 cup Caster sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Pre heat oven to 170* C
  • In a bullet/blender or food processor add the pitted prunes, eggs, vanilla and oil and blitz until well blended.
  • Sift cocoa and flour into a bowl, add sugar. Empty the prune mix into the flour bowl and mix until just combined.
  • Spread mixture into a lined square cake tin approx 18x18cm. The mix is thick and tacky so it may take a bit to spread it around.
  • Bake for about 23-25 minutes or until just baked. Cool in the tin then turnout onto a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar before serving.


Sprinkle on or add chopped walnuts if you wish.
Play with the prune / sugar ratio if you wish to lessen the sugar more.
These freeze well and actually are really fudgy if eaten straight from the freezer.
