Tea time brownie

17 Jul

We went to meet an old school friend of T’s today for tea and so I thought it would be nice to take something along to eat.  These are just a simple brownie recipe from Smitten Kitchen with a few little changes to try to make them slightly healthier.  They are really yummy and can please both brownie preferences with the ones on the edge been more cake-like and the ones on the inside being slightly fudgier.  I am in the latter camp (see all the lovely gooyness).


  • 90 g margarine
  • 80 g fat-free yoghurt
  • 125 g spelt flour
  • 140 g dark chocolate (I used Green and Blacks 85% cocoa)
  • 150 g fruit sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 160ºC, line glass/ceramic baking tray with tinfoil and spray with oil/non-stick spray
  2. Melt chocolate and margarine in a double boiler or microwave
  3. Once melted and smooth stir in yoghurt and then the eggs.  Make sure well combined and then add the fruit sugar and stir until smooth (it gets a really beautiful shine).
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.  Pour in wet ingredients and mixed until well combined.
  5. Pour into prepared dish and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  6. In theory these should be left to cool before cutting up but they would taste really good warm with some ice-cream.

Makes about 24 (each about 105 calories)
