Our very talented Organic September ambassador, John Quilter has come up with these dreamy brownies using his own Cru Kafe coffee.

Blitz the 150g Hazelnuts, with the dates, cacao, almonds and 2 shots of CRU Kafe organic espresso. Once blitzed into a paste add the remaining hazelnuts and macadamia nuts and blitz until chunky and incorporated. Note: Keep 3 of each nut back to crush and garnish with later.
Line a baking tin with parchment paper and empty in your mixture, then place in the fridge to set for half an hour.
