Choc Chunk & Coconut Brownies

Inspired by all this Australia Day talk, I took my favourite components of a lamington ( coconut and chocolate of course) and made these decadent, but high protein , fudgy dark chocolate chunk and coconut brownies. The greek yoghurt ( or coconut for dairy free) combined with the cacao and choc chunks, uses less flour than a normal brownie to create that dense chocolatey texture combined with the crispy coconut flakes. Give this one pan wonder a go- you won’t regret it

  3. Stir well until combined ( it will be nice and thick)
  4. Line a baking tin with baking paper
  5. Smoothen the mixture until evenly placed in tin and cover with coconut flakes and choc chunks ( lightly press them in so they become part of the brownie)
