    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Line a shallow cake tin with parchment or tin foil and grease lightly to prevent the brownies from sticking.

    3. In the meantime, place eggs, sweetener, flour and baking powder in a different bowl. Mix all together.
    4. Once the chocolate is melted pour it in to the bowl with other ingredients. Mix all together. Add walnuts (or fruit) and stir. Pour the mixture in to the prepared cake tin and spread in to the corners.
    5. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
    6. Enjoy with whipped cream, chocolate sauce or on its own!
