Cricket Powder

Protein Enriched Brownie

recipe information

01 Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5 and line a deep baking tray or brownie tin with parchment paper. Rub the sides of the lined tray with a little butter. This makes it easier to remove the brownie after it has been cooked.

02 Gently melt the butter and sugar together in a large saucepan until the ingredients combine into a pourable liquid. Take off the heat and, using a whisk, whisk in the rest of the ingredients, whisking well. The gentle heat of the melted butter and sugar will melt the chocolate to leave you with a brown-coloured, thick brownie mix.

03 Pour the mixture into the baking tray and bake in the hot oven for 30-40 minutes until cooked. To check, stick the point of a knife or skewer in the centre of the brownie and remove: the brownie is ready when the knife or skewer comes out clean, with no mix on it

04 Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully turn out and cut into 12 large squares
