  • 3/4 cup spelt flour (100 g)
  • 1/3 cup whole spelt flour (40 g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (phosphate-free)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup soft brown sugar (80 g) (I recommend Gepa organic raw cane sugar mascobado)
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (fat reduced/stark entölt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (Ceylon)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 large apples, peeled and chopped (270 g net weight)
  • 1 x 200 ml can organic coconut milk (full fat)
  • 100 g dark chocolate, chopped (70% cocoa)
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted hazelnuts (50 g)
  • cacao nibs, to garnish (optional)


  1. Preaheat the oven to 180°C degrees. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cut out strip of parchment paper and lay inside tin, covering the base and long sides (the coconut oil, helps keep it in place).
  2. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients, EXCEPT the chocolate and nuts. Whisk together to combine.

  3. Place your chopped apples and coconut milk in your food processor (or use an immersion blender), and mix until you get an apple sauce.
  4. Pour the apple sauce over the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until just combined. Do not overmix. If too dry, add a tablespoon of unsweetened plant-based milk.
  5. Fold in the chopped chocolate and nuts. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Garnish with cacao nibs and a few hazelnuts (optional).
  6. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Keep in mind there is melted chocolate so you made need to test a couple times.

    NOTE: baking can vary slighty depending on how juicy the apples are and the cream content of the coconut milk. Sometimes, I have needed to bake an additional 10 minutes. Also, this bread is meant to have a similar consistency of brownies, so it will be more moist than standard bread.

  7. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove the chocolate browni bread from the loaf pan. Return to the rack and let completely cool before slicing.
  8. Enjoy!
