Collagen & Chocolate Pan Brownie

I cannot believe I am about to say this but here we are – Kicking off my 24 Days of Christmas with this scrumptious Collagen & Chocolate Pan Brownie I created for O Nutricia Collagen. I have spoken about the benefits of collagen on the blog before, and my experience with the O Nutricia brand, which you can read about here.

There is also a giveaway, so read carefully 😉

Collagen & Chocolate Pan Brownie

First off, what is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and it is a required building block for healthy nails, hair, skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and more. Collagen provides the ‘scaffolding’ for the structure of our body.

Cook & Bake with Collagen

This Christmas, why not try adding collagen to all of your favourite recipes, from gravy to dessert. It is safe to cook and bake with it since its nutritional value does not change when it is exposed to high temperatures. In fact, collagen can withstand heat up to 300C!

Collagen & Chocolate Pan Brownie

Just in time for Christmas – this Collagen & Chocolate Brownie is baked in a cast-iron pan, is gluten-free and has a generous scoop of O Nutricia Collagen. I added xanthan gum to give the brownie a soft, fudgy texture and would not recommend baking the brownie without it. Gluten-free flour loves xanthan gum, as it replaces the gluten proteins that the flour is missing.

Why a Cast Iron Pan?

I baked and served this Collagen & Chocolate Brownie in a cast-iron pan, which is why I was able to bake in the oven. Do not try this with a normal pan, especially if the handle is plastic! If you do not have a cast-iron pan, you can use a normal baking tray too.

I loved baking in a pan and sharing this brownie with my family and I hope you will enjoy the same simple pleasure.

Happy First of December! 🎄

Oh and head on over to my Instagram to win a O Nutricia Collagen Hamper too!
