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.

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