My husband is constantly challenging my skills! It's hard to create healthy foods that he adores. This low-fat brownie recipe hits the spot! Hope you enjoy :)

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups of organic self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups organic raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 tsp instant decaf coffee
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 3 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 2 vegan eggs (4 Tbsp chia seed meal + 3/4 cup water)
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup 85% Lindt chocolate chopped into little pieces
Serves
12 - 16 slices
Instructions
  1. Step 1

    Place sugar in Thermomix bowl and mill 2 seconds/speed 9. Set aside.

  2. Step 2

    To make vegan eggs. Place chia meal in bowl. With blades spinning on speed 3, slowly add the water. Mix 5 mins/speed 2. The mixture should be thick and smooth.

  3. Step 3

    While creating vegan eggs sift flour and cocoa into a bowl. Then add all other dry ingredients. If your sieve/sifter fits inside your Thermomix bowl skip this step and sift straight into the bowl.

  4. Step 4

    Once the eggs are done. Add all dry ingredients, followed by all other wet ingredients. Mix 10 seconds/speed 6.

  5. Step 5

    Add chocolate pieces. Mix Thermomix reverse spin symbol/10 seconds/speed 3.

  6. Step 6

    Preheat oven to 175 degrees.

  7. Step 7

    Lightly grease a cake tin using raw organic coconut oil (I used a 21 cm square non-stick non-toxic tin!). Pour brownie mix into tin.

  8. Step 8

    Bake in oven for 25 - 35 mins. The top should be firm to touch. Double check with a skewer. Insert into the middle - it should come out clean.

  9. Step 9

    Once done let brownie cool for 5-10 mins. Remove from tin. Cool completely on a rack or chopping board. Chop into squares or whatever you prefer. Enjoy! Warm straight from the oven is the ultimate according to my husband! :)
