For the brownies
- 2oz /56g dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup olive oil (you can substitute melted butter or coconut oil)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup honey (you can substitute maple syrup)
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the frosting
- 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
- dark chocolate for grating + topping
Preheat the oven to 350F/175C and line an 8" square baking tray with parchment paper. Place the dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and cook in the microwave for around 60 seconds, until totally melted.
Beat in the oil, cocoa powder, honey, eggs, vanilla, coconut flour and salt until the batter is thick and lump-free.
Pour into the lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, until the top is solid to the touch. Leave to cool to room temperature before frosting.
To make the frosting, stir together the Greek yoghurt, powdered sugar and peppermint extract. When the brownies are cool, cover them in the frosting then grate a little chocolate on top. Slice into 16 squares and enjoy!
