Here is the brownie recipe I promised in my last post. Brownie recipes are so versatile it could be made the sinfully decadent way or the guilt free healthy way with a simple ingredient we all have in our pantry.
There are so many variations, you can make it with almond flour,coconut flour, chickpea flour, mashed red beans etc… instead of the regular all purpose flour. This time, I’m making mine with quick cook oats.
This recipe is eggless, nut free and gluten free and yet it’s fudgy and decadent. Hard to believe, right?
Here is the recipe….
- Quick cook oats – 1 1/2 cups (powdered)
- Milk powder – 1/2 cup
- Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
- Baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon
- Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
- Cocoa powder- 1/4 cup
- Condensed milk – 1 can
- Butter – 1/4 cup (melted)
- Pure vanilla extract – 1 tbspn
- Milk – 1 1/2 cups (warm)
- Semi sweet chocolate chips – 1/2 cup
- Toffee bites – 1/2 cup
*since we are sprinkling the top with chocolate chips and toffee bites I didn’t add any extra sugar otherwise the brownies will become too sweet.
*Make sure the milk is warm it’s very important, it soaks up the oats nicely so you get really soft brownies.
Pour the wet mix to the dry mix and combine it well.
Prepare the square pan, grease the sides put a parchment paper on the bottom.
Pour the batter, smooth it out, tap and shake the pan to make it evenly spread.
*Let it sit in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes. It allows the oats to soak up the milk mixture and thickens up nicely.
*The consistency of this batter will be like the cake batter. It’s not going to be as thick as the regular brownie batter.
Meanwhile preheat the oven at 350*F
Now put the pan in the oven and bake it for 30 minutes
- Keep in mind the chips take a couple of hours to harden
- If you try to cut it while the brownie is warm you will smudge the chips and it won’t retain the shape.
So I recommend you to let it stay in the pan for sometime.
What can I say, these ooey gooey oatmeal Brownies are sinfully delicious! These are so yummy you never know it’s made with oats.
I made a huge batch for the easter party, kids loved it!
