These brownies are so good, they are perfect to have in the house for when the sweet cravings hit. The chocolate topping works perfectly when cooled and gives them a fudge-y caramel-y taste and texture… yum! 😀

  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 6 tbsp. honey
  • 6 tbsp. sugar free caramel syrup
  • 1.5 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda

Chocolate Icing

  • 8 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 3 tbsp. sugar free caramel syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp. cacao powder

Directions

Brownie mix

  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5 / 190 degrees
  2. Pop all the ingredients into a bowl in the order shown above mixing really well each time you add something
  3. Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases and pop in the oven for 25-30 mins or until firm to the touch (keep checking they aren’t burning)
  4. Take out of the oven and let cool before icing

Chocolate Icing 

  1. Pop all the ingredients in a bowl in the order shown above and mix well each time you add something
  2. Let the mixture thicken slightly by leaving it to stand for 10 mins or so
  3. Once the brownies have cooled, spoon the icing on top and decorate with whatever you like or just leave them plain. I used wafer daisies 🙂
  4. If the icing starts to melt a little, (they shouldn’t as the brownies should be cool enough) just pop them in the fridge

Enjoy lovelies 😀

I love making muffins – as you can tell 😀 they are so easy to make! These refined sugar free and dairy free blueberry, banana and chia muffins are really good and as always with my recipes, they are made using one bowl, one tablespoon, one teaspoon and one cup (along with muffin cases and a baking tray of course 😉 ) so it’s super easy to follow the recipes and make them 🙂

Ingredients 

  • 3 x mashed bananas
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 2 x egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 5 tbsp. honey
  • 5 tbsp. sugar free caramel syrup
  • 3 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1.5 cups of self raising wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 2-3 tbsp. flaked almonds
  • 2-3 tbsp. walnut pieces
  • 4 tbsp. chia seeds

Directions

  1. Pre heat the oven to gas mark 5 / 190 degrees
  2. Pop some muffin cases into a muffin tray
  3. Add all the ingredients in the order of the list into a mixing bowl mixing after each item has been added
  4. Pour the mixture into the muffin cases either from the bowl or transfer the mixture into a large jug if easier
  5. Bake in the center of the oven for 30-40 mins – keep checking them
  6. You can check whether they are done by inserting a knife into the middle of one and when it comes out clean, they’re done 🙂
  7. Leave to cool and then devour 😀

Hope you enjoy them 🙂
