Some Days Just Call For Brownies
So I’m all for healthy, low sugar, nutrient packed, guilt free cakes and treats (see my guilt free brownie recipe here). But every now and again you just need delicious, sugary, chocolatey junk food that’s gonna fill you with happiness and restore the calm in your body putting a smile on your face while you slump back onto the sofa to watch season 1 of Paw Patrol for the 6th time in a row. And today is one of those days.
Today calls for my favourite easy chocolate brownie recipe!
How to Make This Easy Chocolate Brownie Recipe
Now I’ll admit, I’m a pretty novice baker and brownies are something I’ve always struggled to master….. until now! After lots and lots and LOTS of trial and error (and taste testing), I have found the perfect easy chocolate brownie recipe that works every time.
The only problem, is finding the willpower to stop eating them. But today, I don’t want that will power. I want to eat them. All of them. And I’m not even sorry.
- 150g unsalted butter
- 185g dark chocolate (broken into pieces)
- 3 large eggs
- 80g castor sugar
- 40g cocoa powder
- 85g whole wheat flour
- 50g white chocolate (chopped)
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- Pre heat oven to 180 degrees and grease a 20cm square baking tin.
- Place butter and dark chocolate in a heat proof dish and heat over simmering water until completely melted (alternatively, melt in a microwave being careful not to burn). Set aside to completely cool.
- Crack eggs into a large bowl and add the sugar. Whisk until pale and creamy, roughly double in volume. You can use an electric whisk.
- Gently fold in the cooled chocolate / butter mixture. Fold in the cocoa, flour and chia seeds. Try not to over mix, just enough until everything is incorporated. Add the white chocolate chunks and mix.
- Pour the mixture into the greased tin and bake in a preheated over for around 35 minutes, after 25 minutes i like to keep a close eye so as not to over cook, just enough so that the mixture isn’t liquid in the centre and a tooth pick comes out clean. You want it to be fudgy in the middle and the mixture will firm up once taken out of the oven and cooled.
- Leave until completely cooled to cut into squares and place on a wire rack.
- Enjoy! (and send me some)
