Decadent “Healthier” Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie

4 Mar

peanut-butter-&-chocolate-brownies

This Brownie is so decadent, you won’t believe its healthy.

It is my new “favourite” naughty treat, one of these & a cup of peppermint tea & I am in heaven. Especially if my little one is asleep & I am curled up on the sofa watching trashy tv!! There you go  – thats my dirty little secret for today – its true kids after you go to bed Mama does have a party 🙂

I don’t know why but I am addicted to all things peanut butter & chocolate, they are the perfect marriage of ingredients, the saltiness of the peanut butter & the sweetness of the chocolate brownie, just elevates these brownies to the level of divine.

And while they are not necessarily healthy, they are definelty a healtheir treat. Un-like your store brought varieties that contain a host of nasties & non-food substances.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 125gm butter
  • 200gm sugar free cacao chips or sugar free chocolate chips
  • 2/3 c coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 c spelt
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c walnuts
  • 1 c sugar free cacao chips or sugar free chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees. Grease & line the base of a 19cm square pan.

Melt the butter, 200gms choc chips & coconut sugar in a saucepan on the stove top, once they have melted together leave the pan to cool for 10 minutes. Once your chocolate mixture is cool add in your eggs, vanilla extract & spelt, stir through to combine well. Add in the cup of choc chips & walnuts. Pour into the pan & smooth out the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The longer you cook it for the more cakey it will become, the less you cook it the more dense & fudgey it will be.
