Rocky Road Brownies

This is another variation on @mands5781 ‘Blondies’ but I’ve added a few ingredients to make the lowest point ‘rocky road’-type dessert I could.  They’re perfect with a cuppa!

These are 1sp each on No Count and on WW Flex you can have 1 for 2sp or 2 for 3sp.

  

Ingredients (makes 10):

  • 50g ready oats (eg: Asda Ready Oats/Ready Brek)
  • 10g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp Splenda (or other sweetener)
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 24g cacao powder (you can use cocoa powder instead)
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 50g low fat natural yoghurt (use fat free if following WW Flex)
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 12g white choc chips
  • 14g mini marshmallows
  • 2 Rich Tea biscuits

Method

  1. Mash the bananas and beat well with the egg yolks, vanilla, Splenda and yoghurt.
  2. Lightly whisk the egg white and fold in.
  3. Add the oats, flour, baking powder, mixed spice, cacao powder and salt and mix well.
  4. Break the Rich Tea biscuits into small pieces and stir into the mixture.
  5. Stir in all the marshmallows and half the choc chips – leave a few to decorate the top.
  6. Pour into a greaseproof papered brownie tin and top with the remaining choc chips.
  7. Bake on 180C for 15 mins (insert a knife to check that it’s cooked all the way through).
  8. Allow to cool in the brownie tin and cut into portions.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi Helen, I love the look of these and am looking forward to trying them. Living in NZ, some of the ingredients you use are a puzzle to me. What are ready oats? (is it just blitzed rolled oats?) and where in the supermarket would they be? Also please, what would rich tea biscuits be like? Thanks so much for all your wonderful recipes 😁

    1. Hi Lynda:-) The ready oats are a powdered form of oats so they give a more spongy texture to the brownies than blitzed oats would do. If you Google ‘Ready Brek’ you might be able to get hold of it online. I chose Rich Tea biscuits as they are one of the lowest pointed biscuits over here to use. The recipe would work with any plain biscuits so just choose your lowest pointed option over there. I really hope you manage to make these as they are such a great low sp dessert or snack. Hope you have a lovely week ahead:-) Helen xxxxx

  2. Made these at the weekend, absolutely fabulous. I was feeling deprived of something lovely & chocolatey that didn’t cost masses of SP’s – thanks so much 😘

    1. Hi and thank you! Really glad you liked these – they are a very yummy low sp treat aren’t they? Enjoy the rest of your week, Helen xxxxx

  3. Hi
    Please would it turn out the same if I use oat bran instead of ready break or oat flour ( portage oats that has been blitzed

    1. Hi Margaret, it wouldn’t be the same with oat bran as that gives a very different texture and taste. You could use oat flour instead, but if you are doing No Count you would have to point it. Hope you have a good day today:-) Helen xxxx
