Clean Brownie Recipe

I’m sure everyone knows what clean eating is by now but incase you don’t it’s basically eating unprocessed foods. It’s not as hard as you might think and definitely not about eating everything raw, cooking is absolutely fine. I found the hardest part is being organised, we do a weekly food shop and it takes a bit more effort working out what dinners to cook all week and what ingredients to use. 

One thing I’ve surprisingly not found hard is the ditching my usual sweet treats. Mainly thanks to Pinterest and the awesome recipes I’ve found on there for peanut butter cookies and honey oat bars. I needed some chocolate though and amazingly managed to adapt a gluten free brownie recipe into my own clean eating one. For someone that couldn’t cook a meal a year ago, that’s pretty impressive I’d say.

Here’s what you need:

Ground Almonds – 68grams

Cocoa powder (one with no additives, check the ingredient list) – 45grams

Greek Yoghurt (as above) – 113grams

Natural Sweetener (I use this) – 100grams

Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon

2 Eggs (free range organic preferably)

First up mix the greek yoghurt and sweetener together. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat together.

Add the ground almonds and cocoa powder and mix with a hand mixer till everything’s combined.

Poured into a non stick tray and place into a pre heated oven at 150degrees for around 15mins, I’d check after 10mins. You can tell it’s ready when it’s is shiney on top and it passes the clean knife test

I think mine are a little thin, my tray was too big, so I’ll probably double up the recipe next time. They’re still yummy though, perfect for a lazy Sunday curled on the sofa.

  1. oh, they’re gluten free, that means you can make some for me. I had totally the wrong idea about eating clean until you started doing it. I think a lot of the meals I cook from scratch might count as clean (obviously not the junk). I’d love to so this, but I already have so many restrictions. I shall give it a ponder.
