Best Slimming World Chocolate Brownies

Well it’s taken quite a few experiments but I have finally come up with a Slimming World friendly brownie that doesn’t have the bitter after taste of sweetener.

Only 2.5 syns plus healthy extra B for all 4 brownies OR 2 syns per brownie



Mix 2 eggs, 35g oatbran, 3 tbsp sweetener, 1 tbsp cocoa powder and 2 tbsp of plain or vanilla yogurt.

Line a small shallow baking dish with baking parchment and pour in.

(I used two small tins 3 inches by 6 inches big).

Bake in the oven for 15 mins at 180 degrees C. Don’t be tempted to bake for longer or they will dry out.

Allow to cool on a rack and then enjoy!
