Chocolate Brownies

Recipe- chocolate brownies (low fat)

My eldest son, thelilfoodkid asked us to make him brownies and cookies this weekend. Hmmm. Our aim as parents is to get out kids to eat well, enjoy food and learn to cook. we did not want to disappoint him so we decided to make lower fat brownies and full fat cookies.

He enjoyed helping measure the ingredients out, shout out the order we put them in, folding in the flour and licking the spoon that contained the melted chocolate.

We enjoyed the brownies and are looking forward to making the cookies.


100g dark chocolate
2 medium eggs
75g  golden caster sugar
75g light brown sugar
½tsp coffee, dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water
1tsp vanilla extract
90g low fat Greek yogurt
90g plain flour
¼tsp baking powder
15g cocoa powder
Icing sugar, for dusting
16 or 17cm square tin, lined with baking or grease proof paper

1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C.
2. Melt chocolate over a pan of hot water. Or alternatively melt in the microwave. To do this set the microwave to low and heat for short 10 second bursts. Remember low and slow.
3. Whisk the eggs with the sugar until light. 

4. Stir in the chocolate, then the coffee, vanilla and yogurt. Gently fold in the sifted flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.

5. Smooth the mixture into the tin.
