Rather than the suggested 100% cocoa chocolate, I used 70% chocolate this time, as I was testing out the recipe principal, so my brownies do have a bit of refined sugar. But hey, I can cope.
I was also interested to try this recipe as it uses wholemeal spelt flour. Not something I have tried before, but high in fibre, so making a healthier post run snack.
Instead of refined sugar, you used a combination of honey and maple syrup.
Bake in a 190c static oven for 15 minutes, though I would check at 14 minutes if you prefer a chewier brownie.
Allow to cool completely (if you can resist!!), before cutting into squares.
I used large eggs and skimmed milk as that's what I had in the fridge, but the recipe doesn't stipulate.
The end result is delicious and nowhere near as sweet as a regular brownie. Plus the honey and maple syrup provide a slower energy release, keeping you going for a bit longer. Now I just have to store them in my baking tin until tomorrow, without 'testing' too many. Wish me luck!
