Egg White Brownies.... Soft, fudgy, chewy, gooey, rich and packed full of chocolate chips. They're also flourless!
I first got the idea to make egg white brownies when I was making pavlova for Christmas. I got a little bit of egg yolk in one of the pavlovas and -as anyone who has made pavlova (or meringue) knows - you have to start again! However, since it was only a touch of egg yolk, my brain started thinking up knew and fun ways to use the three egg whites I had already cracked into the bowl.
Hence, the egg white brownie was born!
You could say these came around by accident but let me tell you... It's a very happy accident. These brownies have such a lovely light and fluffy texture. This is achieved because of the egg whites and no flour. They're also very fudgy and rich. Again because they have no flour, the egg whites are the only stabilisers so as they cool they get fudgier and fudgier. The richness comes from using not only melted chocolate but also cocoa powder.

How is everybody's weekend so far? Is it off to a great start? Mine certainly is. I've been in the kitchen all Saturday baking up a storm. (Seriously, I have a problem...). I'm creating some new, over-the-top, delicious recipes for the blog and they're a little bit of a celebration because LCB hit bit of a milestone last Wednesday. I posted the recipe for the Caramel Spiced Oat Bars and it went off the charts! It was being shared around the internet and people really responded to the recipe and for that, I cannot thank you all enough! I just hope I can keep up the momentum and that you all love the up and coming recipes just as much.
