Blonde Brownies - Healthy Version

I am at it again...trying to convert some of our favorite recipes to be more healthy! I made these last night and they were so good! I thought I would share the recipe with you. I made them healthier by replacing the brown sugar with some organic sugar and molasses. Give them a try!

BLONDE BROWNIES - Healthy Version

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup organic sugar (or sucanat or raw sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Butter a 9x9x2 inch baking pan. Melt the butter, then add the sugar and molasses. Mix well. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Stir in dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt) until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread in buttered pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Note: This recipe can easily be doubled to fit a 9x13 pan if you need a larger dessert!
