Notice I said "healthier" not "healthy". They still have sugar, but compared to many brownies, at least they are an improvement. I imagine for some of you, eating any kind of brownie would be terrible, and for others, using whole wheat flour would be an unheard idea. Hopefully, someone will find these recipes helpful.
All these recipes have won the taste test in my family and don't last long at our house.
In the hot summer, and just about any other time, I try to maximize my oven usage by baking more then one pan of brownies at the same time. This recipe makes two 9x13 pans. Perfect for baking some extra for the freezer.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars
Adapted from Kitchen Keepsakes.
1 1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cup quick oats
3 cup whole wheat flour
2 cup chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugar. Blend in eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Spread in two greased 9x13 pans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Do not over bake.
Do you have a favorite "healthier" brownie recipe? I'd love to try it!
