Brownies are just one of my favourite things to make! So many of you enjoyed my low calorie brownies 

as well as my zucchini brownies and pumpkin brownies. Here is a new recipe to add to the collection of trying, and these have to be one of my favourite new recipes! What I love about them, is that each brownie is a decent size, and you can even have 2-3 of them if you’re a volume eater like me!

Cottage Cheese Brownies

Okay, so there is one secret ingredient in these brownies and that is smooth cottage cheese. If you don’t have smooth cottage cheese you could replace it with low fat greek yogurt. It works the same and makes it super fudgy and rich and chocolatey!

How To Make the Low Calorie Fudgy  Brownies  


Oat flour: I make my own by blending up oats in a high speed blender

Cocoa Powder: For that rich chocolatey flavour

Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.

Eggs: I used 2

Smooth low fat cottage cheese: you could replace this with low fat greek yoghurt

Coffee or milk of choice: You could even use water

Chocolate chips : Refined sugar free if you want the recipe to be, but I used normal plain milk chocolate. 

Baking Powder: Essential for it to rise slightly

Vanilla extract: For an extra vanilla taste



 Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl
