Mini Chocolate Friands.

Apologies for the lack of postings. Things snowballed recently and I haven't had the chance to blog.

I made these for a 10 year old girl birthday bbq. They are the right size for children I think. The adults were having fun trying to pronounce "fri..ands'. I have to say I'm quite pleased with this recipe and will certainly make them again.

Mini Chocolate Friands (18 small servings)

2 egg whites
91grams of butter/margarine melted
1/2 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of icing sugar
1/4 cup plain flour
100grams of chocolate chip (u can substitute it with nuts or fruits)

1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease 2 x 12 hole mini muffin pans.

2. Place egg whites in bowl. Whisk lightly with a fork.

3. Combine flour, sugar n almond meal. Add egg white and melted butter to bowl.

4. Stir in chocolate.

5. Spoon tablespoons of mixture in pan holes.

6. Bake for 15 mins. Turn onto wire racks to cool and sprinkle with icing sugar if desired.

what exactly are friands?

It is a kind of small cake typically made of almond or hazelnut meal. It uses egg white rather than egg yolk so less in cholesterol!
