Healthy Fudgie Brownies
Is there such a thing as healthy fudgie brownies? Not in this recipe. Dark chocolate is good for you in small doses and the ground flax I added has the Omega's. Let's be real. It's got sugar and butter and eggs and anything that good probably isn't the healthiest. As my Grandma would say, " You need some fat in your diet. Eat."
This recipe is courtesy of SACO Dutched Process Cocoa.
Melt a stick of butter (1/2 cup). Add to the melted butter a 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 cup flour. I added 1 tablespoon finely ground flax seed to the mixture (for the omega's). Stir until well blended. Place mixture into an 8"x8"x8" well greased baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees until done.
