1 cup (150g) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (190g) dark chocolate chips, divided
185g unsalted butter
1 cup (225g) sugar
1/2 cup (55g) cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (250g) Jalna Sweet & Creamy Greek Yoghurt
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (optional)
½ cup flaked almonds (optional)
Preheat oven to 180°C/165°C fan forced. Lightly grease a 23cm x 23cm x 2cm baking pan and line with baking paper.
Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Combine half the chocolate and butter in a large stainless-steel bowl. Set bowl over a saucepan of simmering water or microwave in 30 second bursts on moderately high, stirring often until chocolate and butter are melted and smooth.
Remove bowl from heat; whisk in sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and yoghurt. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Fold in raspberries (optional) and remaining chocolate chips. Pour mixture into prepared pan and scatter almonds on top (optional).
Bake until a skewer inserted into centre of brownie comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 25-30 minutes. Let brownie cool completely before cutting into squares with a sharp knife.
The team behind Australia's best-selling pot set Greek yoghourt has launched NEW Jalna Sweet and Creamy, which is based on Jalna's Natural Greek Yoghourt recipe.
Jalna's Natural Greek Yoghourt was recently named Champion Natural Yoghourt at the 2013 Australian Grand Dairy Awards, so it's a natural progression for Jalna to create a sweet twist on this traditional favourite.
Sweet and Creamy offers a velvety smooth, heavenly flavour that is less acidic than traditional Greek yoghourts, while still delivering the well-known health benefits of Greek yoghourt.
Jalna Sweet and Creamy is lightly sweetened with fruit juice, so there is no added cane sugar or artificial sweeteners, in fact there's nothing artificial in any Jalna products; no gums, starches, gluten, gelatine, stabilisers, preservatives, colours or acidifiers, no numbers in the ingredients list or words you don't understand, just honest natural goodness.
Leading dietitian Karen Inge suggests substituting cream in everyday dessert recipes for Jalna Sweet and Creamy yoghourt; -Jalna Sweet and Creamy yoghourt is delicious with stewed apples and a sprinkling of toasted muesli to provide a healthy dessert that offers a good source of calcium, protein and probiotics.'
Jalna has also recently launched its NEW snack size Citrus Splice, another good dessert alternative that is a throwback to that famous 1980's pairing of citrus and cream that conjures up memories of walking to the corner store on a hot summer's day.
Like all quality Jalna products, both Sweet and Creamy and Citrus Splice are packed with more than three million friendly acidophilus, bifidus and casei probiotic cultures in every 100g to help aide digestion, one of the key markers of good health.
Both yoghourts offer a protein rich snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day, and are especially delicious when topped with fresh berries and nuts. Sweet and Creamy can also be used in cooking as a yoghourt marinade for sweet chilli chicken, a base for a prawn dipping sauce or a creamy salad dressing.
In essence Jalna yoghourts:
Are pot set therefore there is no need for any artificial additives
Contain 3 million+ ABC probiotic cultures per 100g
Are Australian made and owned
