Chocolate and apricot brownies
Rich and delectable, brownies must be one of our best-ever inventions. Here’s our own version, with nuggets of apricot for extra texture and flavor.
- ½ cup (4oz) low-fat spread, suitable for baking
- 1 cup (4oz) cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp sugar substitute
- 4 tbsp powdered sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup (3½oz) all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups (8oz) dried apricots, chopped
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350°F
- Line a 12 x 8in baking pan with nonstick parchment paper.
- Melt the low-fat spread in a pot on the stove, remove from heat, and stir in the cocoa powder, sugar substitute, and sugar. Add the eggs and whisk until combined.
- Sift in the flour and baking powder and stir well. Mix in the apricots and vanilla extract, then pour into the prepared baking pan and bake for 18–20 minutes until just set (it will firm as it cools). While still warm, turn out onto a board and cut into 24 portions.
