You either love them... or you love them.
In other words- best mistake the world ever made!
Of course, a traditional brownie consists of butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs, white flour etc. and comes out of the oven fudgy, moist (sorry!) and utterly delicious!
But what if I told you that I made something utterly delicious, moist and fudgy without any of the ingredients mentioned above. Yeh.
Even better? They're healthy enough for a super-nutritious, filling and satisfying breakfast.
Even better still? They taste sooooo good!
It must be your lucky day because I will share with you the recipe that you will need to try right away and then fill your mouth with the warm, fudgy essence of this delicious almost cookie/ almost cake creation!
High protein, sugar free, wheat free, super yummy:
Choc Fudge Brownies!
3/4 rolled oats
2 tablespoons choc protein powder (or sub in 1 large tablespoon raw cacao powder)
1 teaspoon chia seeds
A small handful raw cacao nibs (feel free to throw in some choc chips instead if you want!)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons maca powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 large tablespoon coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup greek yoghurt (sub in dairy free yoghurt if vegan)
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease a mini loaf pan with oil (I sprayed with extra virgin coconut oil)
2. Place oats in a small food processor and process until forming a fine flour:
While my brownie was baking I made a berry ice cream:
Breakfast is served!
This brownie was beautifully dense, chocolatey and so... brownie-like that after my first bite I knew I had created something awesome!
protein powder I use- trust me, all I could taste was chocolate!
Now I could ramble on for days about brownies (and I pretty much have already!) so I'm gonna wrap things up here!
What about you?
Are you a brownie fan? I like them because I'm not the biggest fan of cake or cookies, either too sponge-y, or too biscuit-y... so brownies are quite literally my perfect dessert!
Favourite type of brownie? Apparently there are a few!
Pick it up and eat it or use a fork?
So on this happy brownie high, I leave you to your Monday! Have a fabulous day, eat something delicious and take time to appreciate the little things! Bye friends! :D
