Preheat the oven to 180 °C. 

Grease and line a 20-cm square baking tin with parchment paper. 

Place the dates and bicarbonate of soda in a heatproof jug and cover with the boiling water. Set aside for about 15 minutes until softened.

Add the coconut oil, eggs, honey and vanilla to the dates. Using an emersion blender, purée the mixture until smooth. 

Sift together the almond flour, rye flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. If you have any coarse bits of almonds left in the sieve, tip them in too. 

Add the date purée into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Fold through the chocolate and blueberries.

Spoon the batter into the tin and smooth over. Bake for about 23–25 minutes, depending on how gooey you like your brownies. 

Cool in the tin before cutting into squares. Serve at room temperature.
