‘Oaty Chocolate Orange Brownies’

oaty brownies

I am the biggest chocoholic ever, and will often sit down in the evening and indulge in a few squares of that silky coco goodness. But that’s it, its only a few squares and hey I need more than that to satisfy my cravings. It was then that I discovered my recipe for my gluten and wheat free brownies. My slimming group had being raving and ranting about a flour less cake made with egg, sweetener and vanilla essence which is fabulous but i needed that Chocolate hit, so I decided to experiment one day and add coco powder, some yogurt and orange zest, and so became my ‘Chocolate orange brownie’s. I would honestly be lost without them week to week, they are lifesavers! I have a previous recipe up that makes a bigger batch but this little is a quick and simple treat for 1 or share between two but who shares anything Chocolate!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 35g of porridge oats.
  • 2 tsp of Coco powder.
  • The zest of 1 orange.
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract/vanilla pod.
  • 4 tsp of fat free natural yogurt or I used free mandarin flavor mullerlight yogurt.
  • 2 tbsp of sweetener.
  • 1 foil Chinese style tray.

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c, spray a 4 inch foil tray with low calorie cooking spray.
  2. Separate the egg and beat the egg white until it begins to form stiff peaks and leave aside.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the egg yolk, coco powder, sweetener, yogurt, oats and zest together.
  4. Add the mixture to the egg whites and gently fold in using the figure of eight mixing technique. (TIP) Add a tablespoon of the egg whites into the coco mixture and beat in this will help to stabalise the egg white when adding in the dense mixture.
  5. Bake @ 180c for 15/20 minutes.

I hope you all enjoy my chocolate orange treat.
