The low carb brownies that have the doubters queuing for seconds

So the UK is set to avoid the recession this year despite Brexit


All thanks to my many failed attempts at making – pretty much – sugar free chocolate brownies


Where I learnt that when all else fails, you dip it in (more) chocolate.


So, perhaps – unlike these brownies – the Brexit crash is just hype?


You see…


We had a joint family birthday this weekend for my two younger cousins (12 and 3 or 4…should remember that one)


So I thought I’d make some ‘low-sugar’ brownies that were filling, tasty and – well – CHOCOLATEY 


Which – by the response I got – few can complain with.


And this is a big win, for me.


You see, the Fruci family are a funny lot.


Quite stubborn, in actual fact (I know where I get it from)


No sugar in brownies would be like mornings without coffee and evenings without prosecco


and I get it.


But just like my Nonna used to say to me after I’d say I didn’t like brussel sprouts:


“you don’t know if you don’t try”


After the 1011th time, I decided that I liked brussel sprouts.


ANYHOOO


Back to the brownies 


There were a few grunts and moans (not going to lie)


BUT


There were many more:


‘What’s the recipe?’


‘How did you make them?’


‘You didn’t put any sugar in them ?!?!?’


But, I’m not going to sit here and say they were a success 


Instead, I’m going to let YOU be the judge.


So, here’s the recipe.


Get baking and let me know what you think:


Ingredients (serves 16)


* 40 g of coconut oil


* 60 g of salted butter


* 70 g of 85% dark chocolate


* 100 g ground almonds


* 1 scoop of cookies and cream whey protein (chocolate would work well, too)


* 3 eggs


* 1/4 tsp of bicarbonate soda


* 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt


* 2 tablespoons of stevia


*OPTIONAL: Dash of cinnamon and ginger 


Method: 


1) Pre-heat oven to 170C


2) Gently melt the coconut oil and butter in a pan


3) Add the melted coconut oil, butter and all other ingredients to a blender


4) BLEND!!! BRRRRR (sound of a blender)


5) Pour into a loaf tin (I used 1 kcal fry spray on the tin)


6) Cook for 20 – 25 minutes


7) Leave to cool, sprinkle some more stevia and cinnamon on top, cut into 16, and enjoy 

^^^ I love how all recipes finish with ‘enjoy’. Surely this makes your opinion biased as you’re told to ‘enjoy’ it? I might start using that one in my coaching sessions with members on my Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme.
