A friend gave me this recipe and I just made a few alterations to make it lower fat (so I could justify making it more chocolatey with the mini-chips. :))  As a brownie-lover, I was so surprised how delicious these are with no white flour.  All of my testers thought the same.  Enjoy!

WHOLE WHEAT BROWNIES

2 C. whole wheat flour (best if from white wheat)

2 C. sugar

3/4 C. cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 C. water

1 C. oil (I use 1/2 c. applesauce and 1/2 c. oil)

1 tsp. vanilla

Optional: Add about 1 C. each of chopped walnuts and mini chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together  and pour into greased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  Let set for 10 minutes before cutting.

    ::drool:: is it doable with red wheat? I don’t have any white that is open at the moment.

  2. Brandy says:

    you can use red wheat. I used red winter wheat when I made these and they turned out great.

    I tried these with honey and succant they were delicious! Definitely a keeper! I think red wheat would be okay it would just make the brownies heavier and have more of a wheat flavor.

    Oooh I definitely have to try these out! Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

    YAY! A “healthy” alternative. It seems like food storage and whole grain, low fat can be hard to mix. I like the applesauce suggestion.

    I try to do applesauce a lot, but I can’t wait to try the wheat flour. Mmm.

    I made these Wednesday night and I really like them! I added low-sugar mini chips. They were completely moist, but fell apart kind of easily (crumbly). I think now that you gave me the idea of soft white wheat I’d like to try these with that to soften the overall texture.

    Oh – and I like that they don’t have eggs in them (less food storage eggs I have to use). And thanks for adding the RSS feed!!
