Nutritional information (per serve)
Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Preheat oven to 180ºC. Lightly grease and line a 3cm deep, 28cm x 16cm slice pan with baking paper. Place spread and cocoa in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until spread has melted and mixture forms a paste. (Or, microwave for 45 seconds or until melted, then stir to form a paste.) Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
Step 2 Add sugar and stir to combine. Beat in eggs, then flour. Stir in chocolate chips and fig.
Step 3 Spoon into prepared pan and smooth surface. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until raised slightly and firm to the touch.
Step 4 Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing. Cut into even pieces. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with a dollop of yoghurt (if using).
If you prefer a brownie with a smoother texture, purée the figs; and for more texture, simply chop roughly.
