Angel brownies title

These might be angelically healthy, but as with all the best healthy recipes, they taste anything but healthy. Think decadent, rich and fudgy. You need to make them NOW.

I couldn’t believe that such a simple range of ingredients blended together with a few chocolate chips added could be so delicious. Low calorie and full of healthy, clean, ingredients these brownies can stop any chocolate craving in it’s tracks.

Since I first made these two weeks ago, I’ve made four batches. Unfortunately I can’t take the credit for them as I came across the original recipe via Broma Bakery while searching for ideas for sweet treats to make for one of my community groups. When I made them, the ladies were amazed that something so healthy and innocent could be so amazing. Even they agreed that these are rich enough so that just one is enough, unlike some healthy recipes where you need to eat three to feel satisfied. I’ve switched up the original recipe slightly to make them more my style, and the result is an even tastier and healthier brownie.

I would highly recommend under baking these slightly and eating the gooey middle one warm from the oven. It is heaven!

Honestly, I don’t think I’ll ever seek another brownie recipe now that I’ve made these. You can’t improve on perfection!

Are you a brownie fan? What is the best healthy recipe you’ve ever made?

    These look amazing! I love that they don’t have any weird and wonderful ingredients in either (as a lot of healthy alternative recipes do) – I already have most of these in my cupboards. Can’t wait to try them :) x

    Once again, you know exactly when to post your recipes – I have every single one of these ingredients currently! I’ll take a little break from brownies right now as I’m working through my batch of my infamous avocado brownies currently. These look totally gorgeous and gooey, oh I do love a slightly less naughty brownie recipe!

    This recipe looks absolutely amazing.
    I’m heading to Tesco right now to get the ingredients, will definitely let you know how it goes :)
    My favourite healthy recipe is a vegetable soup with a handful of cooked rice blended up into it; it makes the soup so creamy and comforting and you can eat an absolute boat load for not many calories.

    They sound delicious! I love brownies- perhaps with dried cherries, or a little swirl of pb in the batter.

    Thanks for the great recipe! I’ve made these a bunch of times and they always turn out really good. If anyone’s interested in a brownie-cheesecake hybrid: sometimes i make these with 3/4 cup of pureed 0% non-fat cottage cheese instead of the yogurt (just because we don’t have yogurt around often), and 1/4 cup of Truvia and 1/4 cup of coconut sugar… turns out so good. I tend to bake these longer (22 mins or so) than the recipe states, but I have a new LG oven so who knows. Great recipe.
