Tanya Burr Brownies and Giveaway!

I love baking and I love Tanya Burr so when she brought out her baking book I was more than overjoyed, so much so I got my hands on a signed book. I have loved trying out all the recipes and I though this week I would make her Brownies and share the recipe, plus I have bought one of the baking books to give away to one of you!

This recipe serves 12-16 and in total takes 45 minutes for prep and cooking. Also you will need a 20cm square baking tin.


125ml coconut oil
300g of dark chocolate (70% coca solids), plus extra melted for drizzling
400g coconut sugar
170g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 avocado, mashed
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
3 eggs


Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350 °F / GM4. 

Then line a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.

In a large saucepan, heat the coconut oil and chocolate, stirring, over a low heat, until melted.

Turn off the heat, add the remaining ingredients then mix until fully combined. 

(I didn't have greaseproof paper so I just greased my tin myself) 

Pour into the baking tine and bake for 30 minutes. Leave to cool in the before drizzling with the melted chocolate then cut into pieces.

Then plate up and serve.

What I ate Wednesday

I love these types of videos, probably because I'm so nosey! So I thought I would share via photos what I ate these particular day. 

| Breakfast | 

So I had two small pancakes, and an apple for breakfast. I am really trying to ensure that I'm having my five a day so today I got off to a good start, plus I'm loving pancakes at the moment - YUM! 

| Lunch |

For lunch I just had a baguette, I'm quite simple I don't like anything inside as I'm such a fussy eater! I also had a bottle of water with my lunch. 

| Afternoon Snack |

For my snack I had a fruit salad, and another bottle of water 

| Dinner | 

For dinner we had a naughty meal, which was a Domino's which I loooove though I try to limit as it's not the healthiest but I really wanted it today!

| Night time snack | 

At night I'm at my most snackish, so I did indulge in some mini eggs, because I need to get rid of the chocolate that is left in my house from Easter, it's taunting me, haha!

So that is everything I had for my first what I ate Wednesday, I think I'm going to continue this series if you guys like it? Also, let me know what you ate today!
