A delicious wee treat that you can share with the whole family.

From: Unknown Author; Sweet Treats In (Mar 15) Healthy Food Guide

Serves 18

  • 125g dark chocolate
  • 60g reduced-fat spread
  • ⅓ cup castor sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • eggs, lightly beaten
  • 5 tablespoons flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa, sifted
  • ¼ cup no-added-salt, no-added-sugar smooth peanut butter, warmed
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a 20cm square cake tin with a sheet of baking paper, leaving 3cm overhanging on all sides.
  2. Melt dark chocolate and spread in a small saucepan set over a low heat. Whisk sugar into chocolate mixture then leave to cool for 10 minutes. Whisk vanilla, eggs, flour and cocoa into mixture to make batter.
  3. Pour batter into prepared tin. Place small dollops of peanut butter in batter. Use a skewer to swirl peanut butter into batter.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until skewer inserted into the brownie centre comes out clean. Leave to cool completely in tin.
  5. Cut brownie into 9 squares. Halve each square diagonally to make 18 triangular brownies.

If you enjoyed this recipe here is one I published a couple of years ago:
