sorry there hasn't been a post in a long while, but i am heading off round the world on Sunday (no joke) so there's been loads of things to pack and organise!
i have been a baking machine these last couple of weeks though, i eat a lot when i get excited! but so many of these have been repeat recipes, based on what is in the fridge/freezer/store cupboard.
anyway, yesterday i made some delish brownies for the people at work as a goodbye gift. they were THE BEST BROWNIES I HAVE EVER MADE!
I found the recipe on Enjoy Healthy Eating, it was for Healthy Chocolate Brownies. Who knew? I know Nigella does a version of flourless brownies, but I think there's maybe way too much sugar in them... Anyway, of course I had to change it slightly because I didn't have everything it asked for!
Here's what I used and did:
- 225g plain chocolate melted with 225g butter in a saucepan. Once they melted I added 50g caster sugar and 100g fructose sugar, and left it off the heat.
- then i added 140g ground almonds, 100g chopped walnuts, 3 beaten eggs and about 2 tsps of vanilla extract.
- i lined two loaf tins with baking parchment, and divided the mix between both. cooked in the oven at 180c for 25minutes.
- then i left it to cool completely, which makes it easier to cut, as well as giving that delicious squidgy bit in the middle! YUM!
