Oat Chocolate Brownies



The first commandment for my husband and me is: Thou shalt indulge! and what better than chocolate – the food of the gods - to do that. My husband and I both just love chocolate – anytime, in any form and in almost any combination. So of course, the first recipe on this blog just has to be a chocolate one.


And here is the recipe for these scrumptious brownies.

Ingredients                  

125 gram - whole wheat flour
50 gram - oat flakes
45 gram - dried sweet strawberries, chopped
1/2 tsp - bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp- sunflower oil
5 tbsp - buttermilk
11 tbsp - low fat milk
2 tbsp - honey
1/2 cup - dark muscovado sugar
4 tbsp - cocoa powder, unsweetened
2 tbsp - chocolate chips
a few drops of vanilla essence

To decorate- a few tbsp of icing sugar mixed with some warm water and a little cocoa powder(sweetened)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree C and line a square 20 cm pan with an aluminium foil.
  2. Place the sugar, honey, vanilla essence, oil, buttermilk and milk in a bowl and mix well.
  3. In an another bowl, mix well whole wheat flour, oat flakes, chopped dried strawberries, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and choco chips.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and tip in the liquid mixture. Mix lightly with a wooden/silicon spatula. Do not overmix.
  5. Pour the mixture into the lined pan.
  6. Place the pan in the centre of the preheated oven and bake for abt 18- 20 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  7. Let the brownies cool in the pan for abt 10 mins, then cut it into square pieces and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Drizzle the icing over the brownies and sprinkle some cocoa powder(sweetened).
Makes 16 pieces

    These brownies are soft and moist, and the strawberries adds on to the flavour.

    We enjoyed them with a cup of tea.


    Enjoy!
