Chocolate Chip Brownies - Whole Wheat Brownies and Award

This is my 50th post. I was thinking of a recipe which would be appropriate to celebrate this small milestone and decided to bake Brownies. They are a quick and easy dessert or snack. I tried to make it healthy (I know it does have lotz of sugar and butter - but I tried to make it a bit healthier) by adding Whole wheat flour and was pleasantly surprised by the results. Recipe is adapted from here .
Ingredients :
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preparation :
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9 inch square cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl mix together whole wheat Flour,baking powder,salt and sugar.
  3. In another bowl Blend melted butter and cocoa.
  4. Add butter/cocoa mixture to the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Add the eggs. Mix well.
  5. Add the Chocolate chips and buttermilk . Mix until all ingredients are blended.Pour into the prepared cake pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let brownies cool, then cut into squares.
