Easy Thermomix Brownies
What makes these brownies healthier than your average brownie?
These brownies have less sugar, no refined sugar and lovely wholemeal spelt flour making it a delicious, healthy option to satisfy those chocolate cravings.
As I write this I’m smack bang in the middle of home renovations and drowning in a sea of decision making which has stifled my creativity in the kitchen. Until a craving for brownies hit that is. For a moment I contemplated making my Hot Chocolate Cake with Honeyed Cream or Double Chocolate Banana Slab Cake, but something told me only a brownie would hit the spot.
I took the shortest route possible by throwing together a Thermomix version. Truth be known, I don’t use my Thermomix that much, but I do find it handy for quick desserts like these!
Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.
