Light Carrot Cocoa Snack Cake --(Brownies)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kasha

A very light, low calorie snack cake. I agree with the reviewers, not a browie at all, but that was the name on the recipe, so I stuck with it. Super easy, and a healthy way to get some carrots into a dessert!

This has a lovely light flavour and texture. Very enjoyable and quick and easy to make too! I liked the colour of the carrots through the brownie and the recipe cooked perfectly.
