    Add butter & chocolate.  Melt 2-3 min / 50 degrees / sp 2 or until melted (time will vary depending on whether choc & butter are at room temperature or from the fridge).

    Pour batter into the lined baking tin, sprinkle with 100s & 1000s if desired & bake aprox 30 mins or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. 

    Allow to cool completely before serving (if served warm, you can still taste the spinach - eww!).  Dust with icing sugar if you omited the 100s & 1000s.

Tip

Personally, if I am going to eat a brownie, I'd rather have the real thing & work it off later at the gym!!  However, these are a great 'treat' for popping in the kids' lunch boxes - the kids don't seem to notice they aren't quite 'naughty' enough & I feel like a good mum giving them something healthy for school!

    Fantastic recipe - kids asked for seconds. Nice to get greens in without a fuss and it isn't too sweet either!

  • Surprisingly delicious. I

    Surprisingly delicious. I used frozen kale instead of frozen spinach. I drizzled melted dark chocolate over the top after it had cooled down instead of the hundreds and thousands. Will definitely make again!

    It looked a bit weird being made and I didn't want to lick the bowl, despite it containing chocolate, but when it was done....totally NOT the worst thing I've ever put in my mouth LOL. Surprisingly tasty tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Used home grown spinach which

    Submitted by Sharon.thermomix on 17. October 2015 - 00:02.

    Used home grown spinach which I steamed first and ended up waaaay too strongly flavoured. I'll give it another go and cut the spinach in half when home grown and going to top up zuchini or Apple....

  • Wow, looked weird while it

    Submitted by Cookapalooza on 31. July 2014 - 16:27.

    Wow, looked weird while it was being made, but the kids really liked it with 100's & 1000's on top, in their lunch boxes. I didn't tell them there was anything special about it, and they didn't notice the veges. Thanks for posting it.
