You will need:-
120g dark chocolate
1⁄2 teaspoon coffee granules
125g self-raising flour
70g ground almonds
1⁄4 tsp baking powder
250g golden caster sugar
1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
70g glace cherry (rinsed and halved)
Heat oven to 170° C
Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment.
Combine the flaxseed with 6 tablespoons of water and set aside for at least 5 mins.
In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and coffee with 100ml water on a low heat. Allow to cool slightly.
Put the flour, almonds, cocoa nibs, baking powder and 1⁄4 teaspoon of salt in a bowl and stir to remove any lumps.
Using a hand whisk, mix the sugar into the melted chocolate mixture, and beat well until smooth and glossy, ensuring all the sugar is well dissolved. Stir in the flaxseed mixture and vanilla extract, the cherries and then the flour mixture. Stir until combined and spoon into the prepared tin.
Bake for 35-45 mins until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean with moist crumbs. Allow to cool in the tin completely, then cut into squares. Store in an airtight container and eat within 3 days.
