Pomegranate Choc Chip Brownies



A random act but I bought a pomegranate the other day and it sat in the fruit bowl for a while until I could work out what to do with it.  I had seen something somewhere about a pomegranate brownie – couldn’t ever find that article again but it did prompt a web search for one.

I found this Pomegranate Chocolate Chip Brownie on a website that I think sells bikini’s – so apparently you can eat this and look amazing in a bikini too (Bikini.com).  Absolutely no reason not then!


I gave it a go and took to Sunday morning soccer for a taste test (minus the few pieces I had already hoed into), it was a score!  Click on the link above to get the original recipe.

I have also adapted it for the Thermomix scroll down below and also check out how the Thermomix deseeds a pomegranate in 1 second on this You Tube clip Deseed a Pomegranate in your Thermomix, no mess, amazing!

I have seen just the seeds sold in the supermarket though which is also an option – they are very good for you, trust me I did an assignment on them!

I’m going to make these again for our next book club.
