5-ingredient Chocolate Brownie (Banting & gluten-free premix recipe) anyone? It’s a mouthful to say but that doesn’t come close to expressing the deliciousness of these taste-bud titillating, easy-to-make brownies, which are guaranteed to impress Banters and non-Banters alike.
I am very passionate about the Smartbite brand, having been part of the advertising team that launched this exciting range of health-food products, and I’m very proud to see them on the shelf. The Smartbite range is exclusive to Clicks, so don’t forget to stop by and get your hands on these guilt-free snacking goodies. The Smartbite Chocolate Brownie Premix is made with sunflower seeds and cocoa powder and contains no refined sugars. It’s a wonderful dessert treat to keep you on the straight and narrow, if you’re looking to avoid refined sugar.

3 large eggs
125ml cream
10ml vanilla essence
1 Smartbite Chocolate Brownie Premix

Preheat your oven to 180 degree. Whisk eggs, cream and vanilla essence together. Add brownie premix and mix well. Pour into a lined and greased 22 x 22cm baking pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Allow cooling when done, and then slice into squares. Serve with your favourite choice of topping.

Serving Suggestions: Whip up the remainder of your cream with seasonal fruit and serve!

    That’s my kind of dessert especially since it’s a healthier alternative to the usual brownie! I think adding the topping makes this dessert more decadent. It’s good to know how easy this is to make as well, that’s so amazing!
