  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup rice malt syrup
  • ¼ cup cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil, melted

    What’s the topping on the brownies in the picture? It doesn’t look like coconut as instructed in the recipe. The brownies in the picture make my mouth water and makes me want to use this recipe but I think that picture is of actual chocolate brownies not these healthy chia seed a pepita and sunflower seed ones. I think you should accompany your recipe with a picture of the actual results, not just a regular brownie picture, cheers.

    It’s just raw cacao on top – feel free to do the same.
