Vegan goji berry brownies (under 100 cal)

Goji berries are  so so so good, they taste like little chewy sweets, only unlike sweets, they burst with goodness and vitamin A making them super super good for you. They bake a lot like raisins (so you can sub 1:1 if you can’t buy goji) and go all sweet and caramel. These brownies take about 10 minutes to prep and use only 1 pot, they are the epitome of easy, perfect for knocking up a batch in a jiffy for those days when you’re craving a sweet treat (exam season/ essay crisis time anyone)…

Ingredients: makes 16 in an 8×8 pan

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Olive Light Spread (or any vegan butter)
  • 2 eggs made from ‘Natural Egg Replacer’ (bought at Holland and Barrett)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 4 tbsp goji berries/ raisins
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 and place baking parchment in your 8×8 pan (no need to butter it).
  2. Make your ‘eggs’ and set aside.
  3. In a medium pot melt the butter. Turn off the heat and stir in the sugar until dissolved.
  4. Add in the vanilla, baking powder, cocoa, salt and eggs and combine well.
  5. Stir in the goji.
  6. FOLD in the flour until just combined. The batter will be quite thick which is fine.
  7. Using a spatula/ spoons, scoop into the tin and smooth down.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes, then leave to cool for 5 minutes. The brownies will solidify upon cooling so be careful not to over-bake or you’ll end up with cake!
