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!

Health Nut Brownies
  • 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
  1. Melt the butter and chocolate chips over low heat.
  2. Combine the oats, wheat germ, dry milk, baking powder, salt and nuts in a bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the sugars and vanilla until the mixture is well blended.
  4. Stir in the melted chocolate and fold in the oat mixture until just well blended.
  5. 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!
