Since beginning my new Food Optimising way of eating via Slimming World, I am always looking for ways to reduce my use of processed ingredients and for foods with lower syn values. This way of eating limits all kinds of flours, even wholegrain flours, although the whole grain itself, say quinoa, can be eaten freely in unlimited quantities.

Flourless Pistachio and Chai Masala Brownies

These brownies are exceptionally chewy, sticky and moist. I used Holy Lama Spice Drops to get a beautifully fragrant masala chai flavour and I have to say it ended up being so subtle with hints of spice which didn't overpower the dark chocolate and delicate pistachio flavour either.

Naturally gluten-free and as near-as-damn-it to a healthy but actually nice tasting, and not entirely made of coconuts, avocados and dates, blondie as one could possibly make. Indeed, they have passed the all-important kid and pensioner test. You are welcome.

Here I am at 35, sitting at my kitchen table most nights, head in hands, as I navigate new platforms and editing software. And it makes me mad as a box of frogs that I can remember some Latin verbs at the drop of a hat, yet excel baffles me. Anyway, onto the recipe.

I like my apples tart and bright and crisp and loud. Cooked apples are soft and slow and quiet. You could secretly eat cooked apples without anyone knowing. Raw apples are too shouty for that. I like that about raw apples.

Whilst no-one has gone quite as outré as Ian with the decorations, everyone's still making the most of the time available to perfect the presentation. Everyone, that is, except Mat, who sits calmly drinking a cup of tea and picking at his leftover ingredients while the others sweat over the intricacies of their showstoppers.

Despite being the only person in the tent (and, probably, the country) who knows what mahlepi is, dreamboat Tamal is having a crisis of confidence, and seems to spend half the challenge looking round at everyone else to try and get a better idea of what's going on.
