SCRUMPTIOUSLY HEALTHY BROWNIES





To all of you who know me quite well you will know I have a very bad sweet tooth, I would eat chocolate every day if I could! So when I found this recipe on Broma Bakery for low fat brownie's made with Greek yoghurt rather than butter, I was skeptical but very intrigued. Was it true that you could have a 37 calorie brownie that was low in fat, but still tasted like heaven?

This answer is yes, yes you can.

And you can make them in 25 minutes, the perfect fix for your Sunday baking itch. They taste so gooey and scrumptious that your brain thinks you are eating something containing hundreds of calories.



PREP TIME
COOK TIME
TOTAL TIME
Serves: 9 brownies
Calories per serving: 37
INGREDIENTS
  • ¾ cup nonfat Greek yogurt (I used Co-op own brand)
  • ¼ cup skimmed milk
  • ½ cup Cocoa powder (I used Cadbury's Dark Cooking Cocoa Powder)
  • ½ cup Rolled oats (I used Tesco own rolled oats)
  • ½ cup Truvia Baking Blend (or any natural/stevia based sweetener that pours like sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup of naughty chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°c. Grease a square baking dish.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a bowl, I tend to do the dry ingredients first and then the liquid ingredients. And mix until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into the baking dish and place in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting into 9 large squares.
  4. Lastly, enjoy every single bite of these small and not so naughty pieces of heaven


Hope you enjoy making and eating these as much as I did.

FLUFFY HATS & FLOWERS AT PORTOBELLO RD





Happy Sunday!

Gosh... it has been freezing this weekend, so much so that when we visited Portobello Road market I had to buy myself a new woolly hat. Granted I had been wanting a fluffy bobble hat for some time now, but as it was actually cold I felt it justified my purchase even more! I managed to haggle with the woman on her market stall a fair bit so if you are looking for one of these hats Portobello Road is definitely the place to pay a visit, over £15 cheaper than in the shops, and the fluffy pom pom is detachable for easy machine washing.





I tend to visit this market a lot when I'm looking for pieces for the flat, there are lots of cute antique stores, full of memories and amazing vintage items which you could get lost in for hours. There are also lots of lovely little flowers stalls, so I couldn't help but pick up a bunch of wild flowers and if you are looking for somewhere to eat there are plenty of food stalls, I highly recommend the pizza stands which also sell fresh bread which smells amazing.




If any of you are thinking of visiting this market I would advise to go early on a Saturday morning, as this can be a tourist heavy area, so if you get there early you miss the main rush and can freely move through all the stalls. This is such a lovely area and if you are only in London for the weekend I think it's nice to see somewhere different than the central areas of Regent St, Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus.

Have a lovely evening all

MADE IN CHELSEA







Jacket - AllSaints
Shirt - Zara
Jeans - Topshop
Trainers - Adidas
Bag - Ted Baker
Today the boyfriend and I thought we would try and fit in some exercise into our weekend routines, as too often we end up lounging on the sofa wondering where the time has gone. So we headed out on a stroll to Battersea park and something just came over us and we couldn't seem to stop walking, then before we knew it we had crossed the bridge and ended up in Chelsea. Chelsea has some of the most beautiful buildings and little alleyways I have ever seen. So with all this idyllic scenery around me I thought it would be perfect for shooting some blog photos.

The weather was actually quite mild so I could wonder around happily with my leather jacket on and not feel freezing, I also took my new over sized checkered shirt out for a spin, it's so cosy and you can sneakily hide extra layers underneath if you need a little bit of extra warmth.

Oh by the way if you ever happen to stumble into Chelsea like us, then head to Kings Road and the restaurant Polpo in the square does some of the best food I have tasted! Not to mention you get a nice view of the Saatchi gallery.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
