Some days you just need a brownie, right?
One day last week my husband was complaining that there was no chocolate in the house.
(I know, I married the right man! Haha)
So while he was out frogging (yes, I said frogging – its true!), I decided to try my hand at a recipe I found here and had been wanting to try for a while. Only I didn’t have all of the ingredients and then I just got a little crazy and creative…and it morphed into something slightly different.
Something different and gooey and fudgey and rich and amazing!…something that has left me wondering why I decided to share with my little girl and hubby and why they are all gone now?!
I must say, I love brownies. Brownies from box mixes, Baker’s One-Bowl recipe, and many many other recipes for yummy, chocolatey treats…but I have never had better brownies than these!
Here is the recipe, try this or the original, and enjoy yourself a scrumptious day! ❤
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate (Baker’s)
2 ounces (approx.) semisweet chocolate chips
2 heaping tablespoons agave nectar
2 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
10 tablespoons (1 stick + 2 tablespoons) butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8-inch baking pan and set aside.
Melt chocolates and butter in a medium bowl (microwave or stove top will do). Beat in sugar, vanilla and eggs (one at a time). Add agave nectar and cocoa powder. Stir in dry ingredients until well blended.
Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out with fudgy crumbs! Please, please don’t over-bake brownies. They are sooo wonderful when gooey.
