This is a slightly healthier version of brownies because of the use of rolled oats instead of flour. Rolled oats are really quite healthy because of the fiber content. I prefer eating rolled oats by soaking them overnight with milk and some peanut butter. This time though, I combined oats and one of my favorite desserts – brownies.
Here’s what you will need:
- ¾ cup Brown sugar
- ¼ cup White sugar
- ½ cup melted butter
- 3 eggs
- Vanilla essence
- ½ cup melted milk chocolate
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- Rolled oats
- 2 cups rolled oats
- White chocolate chips
- ½ tablespoon baking soda
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
Here’s how to make it:
- Combine sugar and butter. Whisk until well-combined.
- Add eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition.
- Add vanilla essence. Whisk again.
- Add melted chocolate. Continue whisking.
- Add cocoa powder. Whisk until all the cocoa powder is dissolved.
- Add a pinch of salt.
- Add rolled oats gradually. Mix.
- Add baking soda and mix again.
- Add ½ of the white chocolate chips. Mix carefully.
- Transfer on greased and lined baking pan. Top with remaining white chocolate chips.
- Bake on a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or when a toothpick comes out clean when you poke the center.
- Cool the brownies once cooked.
- Refrigerate once cooled.
- Slice and serve with a glass of cold milk.
Here’s how I fared:
Once refrigerated, these brownies are chewy and dense. I recommend eating only a small portion at a time because it is quite sweet. Alternatively, instead of white chocolate, you can top the brownies with sea salt and add some dried fruit.
This also goes well with plain, black coffee (no sugar or creamer), as the sweetness balances out the slightly bitter taste of the coffee.
