    They were fab hun soooo nice with a cup of tea :)

    1 Syn Chocolate Brownies


    • 6 eggs (separated)
    • 70g Splenda (or other sweetener)
    • 60g cocoa powder (not hot chocolate)
    • 1tsp vanilla essence
    • Fry Light


    1. Preheat the oven at 180ºc, spray a baking tin with Fry Light
    2. Line with greaseproof paper
    3. Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks.
    4. In a separate bowl add the egg yolks, sweetener, vanilla essence & cocoa
    5. Whisk until mixed but you can add a bit of water if the mixture is too stiff
    6. Then fold in the egg whites
    7. Pour the mixture into the tin
    8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

    If you cut them in to 12 pieces they are a syn each and you can use quark and options to make icing but personally i didnt like it so didnt use it.

Every week it takes so long to strategically put shopping away because of lack of space and its impossible to do any batch cooking as i cant freeze anything, the last resort came last friday while putting the shopping away a can of diet coke fell out of the fridge and bounced off my head (not funny it even cut it) while i was sat on the floor trying to put stuff in the freezer, it almost dented my skull as well as my pride and OH found it hilarious - needless to say he was sorry for laughing (or just wanted to get off silent treatment) hense the new fridge! xx
