Healthy Treat for Today: Chocolate Chip BrowniesBy
Do you like rich chocolate like I do?
For me…the richer the better…
And this is one wealthy brownie. Loaded. Rollin’ in it. It’s got bank.
These babies require a glass of milk. A tall one.
After you have these, a brownie from a box just won’t do anymore. You won’t even be able to call those boxed things brownies anymore. They’ll just be a brown square of blah-ness. Nope, now these…these are real brownies.
And, guess what?! I experimented a little with the chocolate chips to see if I could make them with butter instead of coconut oil.
Oh yeah!! You SO can!
The chips are a little softer when made with butter, but they still worked just fine.
And they definitely taste good.
And make great Chocolate Chip Brownies!
Chocolate Chip Brownies
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup sucanat
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup homemade chocolate chips (chunks)
Stir together butter, sucanat and cocoa. Mix in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour into a 8×8 baking stone or pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I had to double this recipe today because I’m taking a few to some friends tonight, and because…YUM!
Get yourself a tall glass of milk and sit down and enjoy one of these rich treats!
And then, get up and jog a few laps, because even though these are on the healthier side of things…
They aren’t carrot sticks.
