Silly substitute brownie recipe :)

Discussion in 'Egg, Chicken, & Other Favorite Recipes' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Apr 14, 2008.

  1. Hi! Hubby said 'brownies would be nice', tonight (??? we've been married 11 years, and I have never made brownies ???).
    The only chocolate in the house is a handful of Reece cups and a box of Swiss Miss cocoa mix in the freezer (we aren't usually sweet-eaters), so I thought I'd see what I could throw together [​IMG]

    I mixed...

    2/3 cup brown sugar
    1 cup quick oats
    3/4 cup+ whole wheat flour
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1 bantam egg
    1/3 tsp salt
    1/3 tsp+ baking soda
    and I added a splash of maple syrup (I went to the frig for vanilla, but I'm out of vanilla extract, too).
    Added 1 package of cocoa mix and a handful of mashed Reece cups (6?).
    Mixed well and pressed into a 10" cast-iron skillet.
    Baked 18 minutes at 350 degrees.

    They looked 'brownie-ish' coming out of the oven.
    Hubby pronounced them a 'keeper', so I'm writing down the recipe before I forget [​IMG]

    It's oats, whole wheat flour, and olive oil, so it can't be too bad, right?

    Sounds like an awsome dish to make. I am going to write it down and try it tonight.
