flourless chocolate brownies

hey everyone!

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!

  1. Very good recipe. Many feels that chocolate is not good for health. But some are good for health like, unsweetened chocolate, bitter-sweet chocolate, raw chocolate bar. One can add grinded cacao beans to smoothie preparations, sweet dishes, tea or beverages, yoghurts, granolas, ice-cream or sweet preparations. One can even make beverage by blending the powdered cacao with hot water or with milk substitutes like hemp milk, multigrain milk, or coconut milk. Also chocolate sauce can be made.
