Whole Wheat Brownies
Now, we've made whole wheat brownies before, and they were good, but these may just be our favorite brownies yet! This isn't the easiest brownie recipe you've seen, unlike the slow cooker brownies we made last spring, but oh, the taste of these lil' guys makes the extra effort so worth it!
Ingredients for Whole Wheat Brownies:
(recipe adapted from A Pretty Penny Blog)
1/2 c Joseph's Grainery Soft White Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x8 baking pan. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Then start to melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat.
Once the butter is melted, add the brown sugar to the saucepan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is smooth, stirring continuously.
Remove the pan from heat, and stir in the cocoa powder until everything is smooth and well-blended. Do the same with the flour mixture.
Add the chocolate chips and vanilla. Beat in the eggs. Spread the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
I promise, you'll be glad you tried them!
