>Whole Wheat Brownies

You can eat a whole pan of these rich, cake-like brownies because they’re made with whole wheat flour and mostly organic ingredients. Okay, maybe not. But at least enjoy a couple ;-) 
Keep reading for the recipe!

You’ll Need: 
1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup (or one stick) unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup (or a couple small handfuls) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp natural vanilla
2 organic eggs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F) and grease an 8 in x 8 in baking pan. Combine the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Then start to melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat.

When your butter is all melted, add the brown sugar to the saucepan. Cook (while stirring to prevent scorching!) for about 3-4 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is smooth.

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.
Stir, stir, stir!
Is your arm tired yet? Just think of all the calories you’re burning, which should decrease your brownie-binging guilt.

Toss in a couple small handfuls of semisweet chocolate chips {you should know by now that my preference is Ghirardelli} and the vanilla.

Beat in the eggs.

Your finished product should look something like this…

Spread the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

{Lick all the beaters, bowls, and spoons while you wait!}

    I love this recipe and am going to use it as my main brownie recipe! I didn’t find it sweet at all! Which is a good thing, but needed a little more for my sweet tooth, so I added powder sugar on top. Sooo good. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello! I tried this recipe with a lot less butter and a lot less sugar (I’m from Japan and I’m not used to super sweet desserts) and it came out beautifully! My bf who is from the US loved it too, he said he couldn’t believe I cut down on the sugar and butter :D Thank you for sharing, will definitely repeat this recipe again :) I’m going to share it on my instagram in a couple of minutes so feel free to come check the photo of your brownies out on my blog :D

    • Love it! And the best part is, once you buy all of the ingredients, you can make lots of batches from them vs. buying a box mix :)
