For the brownies

200 g chocolate couverture
200 g margarine, plus extra for the pan
150 g all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
100 g ground coconut
1 pinch salt
150 g dates, pitted
150 g coconut milk
150 g brown sugar
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
cocoa powder, for dusting the pan

For the ganache

100 g coconut milk
200 g chocolate couverture

To assemble

30 g ground coconut

For the brownies

Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.

Add the chocolate and the margarine in a bowl over a bain-marie and let them melt. Remove and set aside.

In another bowl add the flour, the baking powder, the coconut, salt, and mix with a spoon.
In a blender add the dates, the coconut milk, the sugar, the vanilla, and beat very well until there is a paste.

Transfer the paste into the bowl with the solid ingredients. Add the chocolate mixture and mix well with a serving spoon until the ingredients are homogenized.

In a 25x32 cm baking pan lined with parchment paper, spread a little margarine and dust with cocoa powder.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let it cool well.

For the ganache

In a pot add the coconut milk, the chocolate cut into pieces, and transfer over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is hot.

Remove from the heat and stir well until the chocolate melts completely and the mixture’s temperature drops.

Pour the ganache over the brownie, sprinkle with the coconut, and allow 30 minutes for it to stabilize.

Cut into pieces and serve.
