Whole Wheat brownies

Whole Wheat brownies

I have favorite brownie recipe which we like and depend on.However continuing   on  whole wheat journey that we have barged on and forcing my family to attempt and enjoy it,i wanted to try whole grain twist to this classic American dessert.

  • Particular cocoa powder which is used ,had strong,slight bitter chocolate taste to it which i don’t mind,though my family would have loved the ‘regular fudge brownie’ better.Since everyone came back asking for it next day,i will not worry about it anymore.So if you love chocolate you will like this brownie.If you don’t like chocolate all that much,give it a try.You may still like it !
  • I also thought using whole wheat in this recipe is win-win,since chocolate overshadows the ‘flour’.
  • I used Turbinado sugar in this recipe which is not as processed as regular white and brown sugar.It is also drier then regular brown sugar which the recipe calls for,so my initial thought was to use honey to compensate the dryness.However when i saw sugar and butter melted together, i didn’t think i needed to add honey to keep it moist,as  i had initially thought.
  • Since my family is not fond of nuts, i coarsely ground it,you can leave it chunkier if you want.I like walnuts nuggets in my brownie.
I adapted the recipe from here.
