Dried pureed fruits are great for replacing refined sugars and fat. Try processed prunes, apricots, red dates, or peaches. To make a fruit puree for this recipe, combine 2/3 cup of pitted fruit like prunes and 3 tablespoons of water in a food processor. Pulse on and off until fruit is a fine wet puree (this makes about ½ cup puree).

Time to make - 30 minutes

semi sweet chocolate 125g
fruit puree ½ cup (dried prunes or dried apricot or dried peaches)
egg whites 3 large
white sugar 1 cup
salt 1 teaspoon
vanilla essence 2 teaspoons
white flour ½ cup
walnut halves ½ packet, (150g packet)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Coat a small square baking tin with vegetable cooking spray. Place the chocolate in a small stainless-steel bowl. Set over a low heat in a small pot containing simmering water. Stir occasionally just until the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and set aside.

In mixer bowl combine all ingredients except the flour and walnuts; beat thoroughly with a hand-held mixer. Fold in the flour until you have a smooth batter. Spread the batter into the prepared tin and press walnuts into the batter. Bake for about 30 minutes until springy to the touch. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes and cut into squares.
