Brownie Recipe

Did I make you wait too long? Did you dream of fudgey gooey brownies? I am evil right? But before we get to that…yes I am going to make you read more rambling nonsense before you get the recipe, I will tell you about my day thus far.

I did the bike class again this morning- it was more comfortable for by bottom this time with that darn seat, but the workout was just as challenging. Afterwards I did a body pump class- I already hate the bicep track as it is and this one was an absolute killer!

I came home to shower and had my post-workout fav snack but this time changed it up a little bit. I decided to have one side covered in pb and the other with almond butter, the usual chia seeds and banana slices all on top of the wholgrain toast. Love it! I am off to do some window shopping with mum, grab some lunch and maybe even use my birthday gift card (thanks in-laws) to get a new gym bag :)

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for- My Ultimate Healthified Brownie Recipe. Actually, it’s not mine but it’s taken from the magazine Healthy Food Guide, but it is THAT good I had to share it. The bf even said he thinks it’s the best brownies I’ve made :)

Triple Chocolate ‘Healthified’ Brownies

Taken from Healthy Food Guide Magazine. Makes 16 squares.

  • 1 cup unsweetened apple purée ( I used baby food and it was just under a cup)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I used castor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate (I used chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate (I used chocolate chips again)
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped.
  1. Preheat a fan forced oven to 175°C. Line a 20x20cm baking tin with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Place apple purée into a bowl and sift cocoa, flour and baking soda over it. Add sugar and salt, and mix until just combined. Make sure you don’t over-mix. Gently fold in chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate) and pecans.
  3. Pour mixture into tin, smoothing out the top. Bake for 25 minutes or so (depending on your oven), or until the centre feels set, but is still a little ‘fudgy’ when you insert a skewer.
  4. Cool in tin for 5–10 minutes (if you have amazing willpower) before turning out onto a wire rack.
  5. Cool completely before slicing into 16 squares. Pick at it as you will.
And then eat them and feel good knowing you are eating a ‘healthified’ version that appears to be the most decadent brownie ever.

How long did you wait before making these brownies? How long did it take you to eat them all? Haha!
