Healthier Dark Chocolate Brownies
These delicious dark chocolate brownies are made with no added sugar and are a great tasting, low-gl alternative to the regular sugar-filled variations.
- 150g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
- 100g butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 100g ground almonds
- 3 tbsp xylitol
- 4 eggs
- Place a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Break up your dark chocolate into squares and melt in the glass bowl. Don't put the bowl straight onto the hob as this will burn the chocolate.
- Stir in the vanilla extract (if using) and set aside.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks and set the yolks aside.
Whisk the egg whites until fluffy and firm.
Put the yolks in a bowl, add the xylitol and whisk until well mixed. Add the butter and mix again until semi-solid.
Take your melted chocolate and stir in the almonds.
Add the yolk mixture and stir well.
Add the egg white mixture and stir well.
Spread evenly on a sheet of baking paper, about 1-2cm thick.
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C/Gas mark 4. Place mixture in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the top hardens.
Remove from the oven and cut into your desired shapes.
Serve while still warm!
