Dirty Blonde Brownie
The original Blonde Brownie recipe came to us from a friend of the DH's long ago. Thank you, MG! We've changed it up to use whole wheat, olive oil, and less sugar.
Dirty Blonde Brownies (with vegan options)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups packed brown sugar (we often use only 1 cup; adjust based on your preference and the sweetness of the chocolate)
2/3 cup olive oil
2 eggs, beaten (or vegan egg substitute)
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate)
1/3 cup nuts
Mix nuts and chocolate chips together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a third bowl, beat eggs (or prepare vegan replacement). Add oil, then sugar, then vanilla. Slowly add about 1/3 of dry ingredients into wet, and then 1/3 of the chocolate/nuts. Repeat twice.
Spread in a 13x9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for ~30 minutes. Cool in pan for about 30 minutes and serve warm. Try not to make yourself ill by eating half the pan.
