I had whipped up these lower fat brownies as needed something sweet one afternoon without intending to blog them but they came out looking bloggable so here they – and my new slate tile – are in all their glory.
Taken from Cook Yourself Thin: Quick and Easy these fudgy brownies weigh in at 102 calories per brownie when cut into 16 squares and I also added a sprinkle of peanut butter chips as they need using up.
Healthier Chocolate Brownies
50ml sunflower oil
150g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50g cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking powder
80g plain flour
sprinking of chocolate or peanut butter chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 175c and line a 20cm square tin with parchement.
Mix together oil and sugar in a large bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir until well blended.
Carefully add cocoa powder, flour and baking powder and mix well.
Pour the batter into the tin.
Bake for approximately 15 mins or until done – a skewer will come out with only a few moist crumbs.
Serve warm or cold.
They freeze well and each square will warm from frozen with a 30 second blast on high in a microwave.
