Omega 3 Chocolate Brownies
I wanted to create a chocolate brownie that is delicious yet good for you. With omega 3, protein, spelt flour and antioxidants you can enjoy these treats any time. For Omega 3 I used Nature's Heart Superfoods Omega 3 Superpowder. Www.naturesheartsuperfoods.co.uk if you can't get hold of it then just leave it out the recipe. There will still be omega 3 in the brownies from the chia seeds.
- 150 g spelt flour or wholemeal
- 2 ripe bananas mashed
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 5 tsp cacao/cocoa powder
- 80 g coconut sugar
- 200 ml plant milk
- 3 tbsp avocado/olive/coconut oil
- 3 tbsp Natures Heart Omega 3 Superpowder or chia seeds
- 2 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 6 tbsp warm water (10 minutes)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of pink/sea salt
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk, oil, Banana & vanilla and stir together thoroughly. Allow mixture to sit and soak up liquid for 10 minutes. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pour in the mix. Place in the centre of the oven 180ºc and cook for 30-35 minutes. Stick a cocktail stick in the centre of the brownies and it should come out clean. If it has mixture on it pop back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire rack in the tin and remove after 20 minutes. Gently peel off the paper and enjoy warm or cold.
