Sugar Free Chocolate Brownies
No butter, flour, or sugar is used in these delicious, guilt free sugar free chocolate brownies sent to us by Asami Zenri!
200g dark chocolate
60ml almond milk (you could also use milk, soy milk, or heavy cream)
200g silken tofu
4tbsp cornflour (use gluten free cornflour for a sugar free, gluten free brownie)
1tbsp rum or brandy
1tsp vanilla extract
Optional Icing sugar for garnish **Edit: Yes, we know this is sugar, it’s not integral to the recipe, so omit if you don’t want to garnish, use some powdered Stevia, or maybe some cocoa for an extra chocolatey hit!
1. Microwave the chopped chocolate and almond milk in a medium bowl for 40 seconds on low power and mix well. If the chocolate isn’t completely melted, continue to blast in 15 second intervals mixing well between each blast until the chocolate is completely melted.
2. Whisk the tofu, eggs, honey, cornflour, rum and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Add the chocolate and almond milk mixture and continue to whisk until the mix is smooth. You could also use a food processor or stand mixer.
3. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius (320 degrees farenheight). Pour batter into a lightly oiled baking pan and bake for 40 minutes or until the brownie begins to pull away from the edges of the pan.
4. Allow to cool, remove from pan, slice and garnish with icing sugar, stevia or cocoa.
Remember if you’re making gluten free brownies to check that your icing sugar and cocoa is free from gluten!
