Yes, breakfast and brownies in the same title!
I’ve been trying to make an awesome, low sugar brownie for ages, and would you believe, this protein-packed one is the go?!
Perfect for encouraging fussy eaters to have a different breakfast with the percentage of sugar way lower than most popular chocolaty cereals. It could equally well be a snack or a dessert.
Served on its own it’s delicious, but it would also work well with yoghurt, cream, jam, or peanut butter.
¼ cup honey or maple syrup (add more, to taste)
1/3 cup melted butter (or light oil)
¼ cup runny peanut butter (or other nut or seed butter)
¼ cup softened dates (I microwave in 10 sec bursts)
¼ cup oat flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
Heat oven to 180˚
Beat together the wet ingredients (I put them in the food processor)
Stir through dry ingredients
Pour into a greased baking dish
Cook for 12-15 mins. For soft and gooey pull out when a skewer still shows a little wet on the inside as it will continue to cook out of the oven.
Eat warm or cold.
