LOW SUGAR RED VELVET BROWNIES

In honour of Valentine’s Day we bring you a new brownie recipe that’s not only higher in protein and lower in fat than your standard brownie recipes, it’s also seriously lower in sugar too, just 3g per brownie! Our low sugar brownies are marbled with a delicious red velvet cheesecake mixture that brings together our Eatlean Spreadable and TRKG Red Velvet Syrup for a seriously low sugar, higher protein alternative with zero compromise on taste!

So what have we switched up?

Eatlean Spreadable - Lower in sugar, lower in fat and higher in protein than other Spreadable cheese products, our Eatlean Spreadable is so versatile that it works perfectly as the base for our Red Velvet Cheesecake mixture.

TRKG Syrup- If you’ve ruled any kind of ‘syrup’ out of your diet due to the high sugar content...we’ve got some good news for you! TRKG Red Velvet Syrup contains ZERO calories and ZERO sugars! Plus it tastes delicious 🙌🏼

Sweetener - Brownies are typically loaded with sugar, so we’ve opted for a sweetener instead to keep the sugar, calorie and fat content lower.

Margarine - A low fat margarine works as a great alternative to high fat butter that you usually find in brownie recipes

Dark chocolate 70% - You can choose your chocolate dependant on your taste, but we used a 70% Dark Chocolate to reduce the sugar content once again.
