Health Nut Brownies
This recipe is excellent for those who want to watch their calories or who are diabetic. Today is National Brownie Day and I found this recipe a long time ago and wanted to put it out there for those who still want a sweet treat during the holidays and for those in my family who are supposed to stay away from sugar! Even though this brownie recipe has a little sugar you can use sugar substitutes such as Splenda brown sugar blend!
- ½ cup butter
- 1 pkg (6 oz) sugar free chocolate chips
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup wheat germ
- ⅓ cup nonfat dry milk
- ½ teas baking powder
- ¼ teas salt
- ¾ cup chopped walnuts
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 teas vanilla extract
- Melt the butter and chocolate chips over low heat.
- Combine the oats, wheat germ, dry milk, baking powder, salt and nuts in a bowl.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the sugars and vanilla until the mixture is well blended.
- Stir in the melted chocolate and fold in the oat mixture until just well blended.
- Pour batter into a greased 8-inch square pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
Grab a mug of coffee and a brownie and enjoy!
