Good for You Chocolate Brownies - honest!(?)

I have been dying to enter English Mum's Big Bake off, but having started the Personal Challenge for July I have had to hold off on baking all sorts of delicious goodies until now. I would have liked to experiment more, lets face it any excuse to eat cake! But obviously that is exactly what I have been trying not to do.

First I suppose I should tell you of my July Challenge result. Drum roll please....I lost 5 pounds! It is not the significant amount I would have liked to lose. I can give the excuse of being ill a couple of weeks in so all I wanted to do was eat comfort food and my exercise plan went out the window! But lets face I wasn't ill this week and I didn't make it back out for a run though I was eating more healthily. Still it is something and therefore should be celebrated, and so I baked these:


Triple chocolate brownies with cream cheese frosting. Oh, and a strawberry. Obviously this means that they are actually good for you. Not to mention the fact they are made with Green and Blacks! Yes I know, no extra points for bribery, but I couldn't help but be inspired by the amazing prize. And really, any excuse for chocolate!
