Homemade brownies

Experimenting with brownies, never cooked them, so made my own coconut butter, with liquidising coconut flakes. Grated jaggery, dark sugar like, tastes like molasses, got that tip from another member. A bit too much raw cacao in, but then this was my own recipe.

Only posting this, as they are full of really good ingredients, dates, almonds, ground and pulsed, raw organic cacao, milk, and eggs, but will use coconut milk next time. Also vanilla extract.

Was very interesting reading up about the benefits of jaggery, which is the sap of date palm or sugar cane. Seems to have a good iron content, and 85 or so vitamins and minerals, so way healthier than white sugar, which is DEATH lol. Anyone ever used it in cooking, tips would be appreciated.
