Baking | Wholewheat Dark Chocolate Brownies … one bowl, whole grain, and delicious

“May your life be filled, as mine has been, with love and laughter; and remember, when things are rough all you need is … Chocolate.”
Geraldine Solon

Wholewheat Double Chocolate BrowniesWholewheat Dark Chocolate Brownies … deep, dark, decadent, indulgent. These days I’m driven by a strange bug, the whole grain bug. Experimenting rules the roost, the more whole grain, the better! It’s a fight to the finish … HUNGRY TEENS, final exams and the need for food, or rather, the constant need for food!
Wholewheat Double Chocolate Brownies 3The last few days of December slip through the fingers helplessly. I try to hang on to the year but obviously am fighting a losing battle. Time to march on the greener avenues, look forward to 2013 … and enjoy the remainder of 2012!

Wholewheat Double Chocolate Brownies 4The junior teen and his friends discuss the Mayan end of the year on December 21, 2012. I look at him disdainfully! For heavens sake … what must be, must be! Who are we to figure out when the world will end?  There must be better things to think about. Chocolate is one of them! Chocolate just makes everything better!

Wholewheat Double Chocolate Brownies  Plenty better stuff to think about –  More whole grains everyday. Making food yummy. Experimenting. Butter is good! I make it at home too, sweet white butter from scratch!
Wholewheat Double Chocolate Brownies 8I made 2 batches of thees whole wheat brownies for the ‘German Mela‘ last week, a fundraiser to help my sweet friend Mukta. I made some Christmas sugar cookies too. Then I made yet another batch of these brownies yesterday for the hungry kids … they’re almost gone {the brownies I mean …LOL} . Did I tell you the wholewheat dark chocolate brownies are good, really good?

  23. Of all thelaces to sneak in whole wheat flour, I think this is a great one! I like the texture of them, and since they are teen-approved, you know they must be really good!

  24. Precious says:

    We haven’t eaten them baked yet, they’ve just gone in but if they taste half as good as they do uncooked, we’re in for a treat!!!
