Slimming World Brownies Recipe...

This post probably won't be relevant to you unless you follow Slimming World but if you love baking you could still give these a go as they are generally quite healthy! As I am trying to stick to Slimming World at the moment, I wanted to try some of their baking recipes out. I was a bit sceptical because most of the cake and baking recipes contain lots of eggs and not much else but these turned out okay! I think these are great for a little sweet snack and you don't need too many to fill you up either. 

If you don't follow Slimming World you probably won't understand what I mean when I talk about syns but basically you get a daily allowance of syns and you can use them on whatever you want. This recipe makes a lot of brownies, about 25 if they are in small squares and they are about 1/2 a syn each which is great considering you get 15 a day! I wouldn't recommend using all those syns on brownies though!

6 eggs, seperated
70g of sweetener
60g of cocoa
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. First seperate the eggs, I put the yolks in one bowl and the whites in another. Whisk the egg whites, you need to do this for quite a while! Luckily George did most of that while I mixed the rest of the ingredients.
2. Mix the egg yolks, sweetener, cocoa and vanilla until it makes a thick mix.
3. I then added the egg whites a bit at a time. I didn't end up needing it all, only about half.
4. When everything was mixed, I added it to a baking tin and baked in a 180 degree oven for about 25 minutes.
5. When they were done I transferred to a wire rack and cut into small squares.
These can be a little dry so I what I normally do is add a tiny bit of nutella, obviously this comes out of my syns, a teaspoon is 2 syns which really isn't bad. To say their not full of sugar and crap, they taste pretty good!

If you buy some cacao nibs you can make them double chocolate without any guilt!

What cocoa powder do you use as all the Cocoa powders I can find in the UK would make the brownies more syns
