Chocolate Brownies

These wee babies are totally irresistible and super easy to make! They don’t last a second in my house!

275g Margarine Softened
375g Caster Sugar
4 Eggs
75g Cocoa Powder
100g Self Raising Flour
100g Chocolate Chips

You will need a traybake tin 30x23x4cm

Grease the tin, then line it with a rectangular piece of grease proof paper that fits the base and sides of the tin.

Heat oven to 180c.

Measure all of the ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix with a hand-held blender until evenly mixed.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Ensure you scape out every last scrap of the bowl. Then spread it out nice and evenly in the tin.

Bake for roughly 40-45 mins they will be nice and crusty on the top and if you insert a skewer, it will come out clean.

If they are browning too quickly, you could cover with some foil for the last 10 mins of cooking.

Cool in the tin, then cut into square of your desired size.

Store in an airtight tin.

Eat straight up as they are or, you could serve with some crème fraîche, strawberries and a dusting of icing sugar!

Really Yummy Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Really Yummy Peanut Butter And Chocolate Protein Balls

Chic Peanut Butter Protein Balls

I love healthy eating and going to the gym. I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, and when I get a sugar craving a couple of pieces of Green & Blacks keeps me happy!

I am sceptical about alleged ‘healthy’ snacks…I would generally prefer one piece of my yummy Green & Blacks to several dodgy ‘healthy’ alternatives. These bad boys proved me and my entire family wrong…they were whipping them out of my fridge at every opportunity! With peanut butter and flax seed amongst the ingredients…its win, win, win!!

270g Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 Bananas well mashed
2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
2 tbsp Flax Seeds
1 tsp Stevia
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
3-4 tbsp Sweet Desiccated Coconut

With the exception of the coconut which you need at the end, put the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix the rest of the ingredients together thoroughly.

Make them into truffle sized balls or slightly larger if you fancy!

Take each of the balls and roll them in the coconut to cover.

Place them in a container lined with baking paper. Try to keep to a single layer, if you need another layer, add another sheet of baking paper.

Put in the freezer for two hours then transfer to the fridge.

Enjoy, guilt free with a cuppa!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

These wee bad boys are amazing! They remind me of Reese’s Pieces and they are divine! They require no cooking and are super easy to make with kids…..enjoy ❤️❤️

Ingredients

150g Butter
200g/7oz Dark Chocolate (at least 60% cocoa solids) or milk chocolate (or a mixture of both)
250g Digestive Biscuits
200g Soft Light Brown Sugar
300g Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Line a 20cm/8in square tin with baking parchment, leaving some excess paper hanging over the edges (this makes it easier to lift out once set).

Melt the butter in a large pan over a low heat.

Snap the chocolate into squares and throw into a small bowl.
Melt in the microwave in 30 second blasts, stirring well between each addition or sit the bowl over a pan over simmering water. Make sure that the bottom of the pan does not touch the water or the chocolate will go grainy and stiff.

Blitz the digestive biscuits and brown sugar in a blender or food processor to give fine crumbs. Tip them into the melted butter.

Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract and mix together so everything is well combined.

Tip the mixture into the lined tin and press it down really hard with the back of the spoon.

Then pour over the melted chocolate, tilting the tin back and forth a bit so that the whole thing is evenly covered.

Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up (or the fridge for an hour).

Once the chocolate is set, remove it from the freezer (or fridge).

Lift it out of the tin with the help of the baking parchment.

Remove the paper and then use a sharp knife to divide it into squares and serve.
