Quick Healthy Chocolate Fruit n Nut Brownies

This recipe has been requested by many who have tried them. Made healthy by adding lots of dried fruits and 'good fat' nuts.

In a bowl add:

  • 150g golden granulated sugar
  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 65g cocoa powder
  • 100g SR flour
A handful of each or either of:
  • pumpkin seeds
  • milk chocolate chips
  • white chocolate chips
  • dried cranberries or sour cherries
  • dried bluberries or raisins
  • dried organic apricots
  • pecans or walnuts
  • chopped hazelnuts or brazil nuts
    Mix these together (the bold is my preferred combination) and then add:
  • 200ml rapeseed oil
  • 2-3 t vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs

Mix dry with wet and tranfer to a rectangle cake tin lined with greaseproof paper and cook at 160C for 25 minutes. Allow to cool in tin before cutting into desired pieces. Great with coffee!

Photos to follow with next batch. I keep giving them away and my family miss them so its back to the baking bowl.
