L: Sardine salad. Peanuts
D: Corned beef casserole with cauliflower. Blueberries & cream
Callanetics: 30 mins
Rich Chocolate Brownies
12 oz 70% chocolate 2/3 cup of ground pecans (other nuts will do)
12 oz milk chocolate 3 extra large eggs.
3/4 cup of butter
Preheat oven to 350F
Line the base and sides of an 8" square cake tin with baking parchment or greaseproof paper.
Break the 70% chocolate and 1/4 of the milk chocolate into pieces, and put into the top of a double boiler. Add butter. Melt over simmering water, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir ground pecans and eggs into melted chocolate.
Chop remaining milk chocolate into chunky pieces. Stir half of the remaining chocolate into the warm mixture, and pour into the prepared tin, spreading it into the corners. The milk chocolate doesn't need to be completely melted. Sprinkle with the remaining chopped milk chocolate.
Bake brownies for 30-35 mins, until they rise and are just firm to touch. Let cool in the tin, then cut into squares of 16.
20g carbs per brownie.
Can be served garnished with raspberries or strawberries, or with a spoonful of cream.
I think I may use all 70% chocolate and thus reduce the carbs even more.
