This is my favourite treat of all. Brownies, I love them even more now that I’ve found a way to make them dairy free. They’ve especially been going down well on my very overly stressed roommates at University. They are a cheeky treat loved by adults and children alike and a perfect rainy day activity for children. Lets be honest, its chocolate, where can you go wrong?
200 grams 85% dark chocolate (the best kind I like to use is Green and Blacks)
150 grams Plain Flour
200 grams Coconut oil
450 grams of caster sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp of baking powder
4 Large Eggs
pre-heat the oven at 200 degrees.
Melt the coconut and chocolate together in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water*
In a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla and eggs together so that they form a nice thick mixture.
Combine the melted chocolate and coconut oil together with the flour mixture and stir well so they are mixed in well.
Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and pour the mixture in, spread the mixture around the tin evenly.
Bake for 20-30 mins, check if the brownies are done by sticking a knife in, if it comes out cleanly then they are ready!
Sprinkle a little icing sugar on.
*CHEAT: if you’re in a rush zing the coconut oil and the chocolate together in a microwave for 2 mins 😉
