Now the first time I tried these, I used just sweetener and no prunes. I’m not a massive fan of the taste of sweetener it always sits a bit funny with me afterwards so I have adjusted the recipe to suit myself… If you like sweetener then just ignore the prune step and use 8-10 tbsp of sweetener in total, for any slimming worlders this will make the mix 6 Syns less as the prunes used equal 6 Syns and sweetener is syn free.
For 12 brownie bites you will need
- 5 Scan Bran
- 80g Prunes (I used sainsburys own)
- 2 tbsp of Cocoa Powder
- 2 tbsp of Sweetener
- 1 tbsp of Choc Shot
- 3 Eggs
With a clean dry whisk, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. Add a small amount to the scan bran and mix together then fold in the rest gently.
Line a baking dish with baking paper and spray lightly with frylight… The dish I use is 15cm wide, 25cm long and 5cm deep which gives a nice thick brownie.
Bake in the oven on 180′ for 20 mins. You want there to be a little wobble still in the middle when it comes out the oven. Leave to cool completely in the dish.
For slimming worlders the whole mix equals 20 Syns, I cut mine into either 10 or 12 bites and work out my Syns from that!
Now these are nowhere near as lovely as the real deal BUT they are a great, much healthier substitute that can help curb and cravings for cake and lovely with a cup of tea in the afternoon or an evening picky bit after dinner!
