"These brownies are a result of my tampering with a regular brownie recipe and obtaining an amazing result. They are so moist and fudgy that you'll never know they're good for you!"

coffee flavored extract
unsweetened cocoa powder
whole wheat pastry flour
I made a few changes and it turned out great. I omitted the applesauce. I used the entire egg. Olive oil 1/4 cup instead of butter. Creme Fraiche instead of butter milk (I live in France). I also poured it into muffin tins (same temp & time) because I have been traumatized one to many times for undone insides when using whole wheat and they turned out AMAZING! Also, it helps with portion control (well, anyway it could). Great recipe- thanks!
These shouldn't really be called whole grain brownies as there is only 1/4 cup of whole wheat pastry flour in the entire recipe. Made as is, they are good, but light - much like a chocolate cake. I would rather just make a regular 'indulgent' brownie recipe since this one only adds the little bit of w.w. flour. Made a second time, with the following simple tweaks: two whole eggs, all whole wheat flour (not pastry) and 1/2 tsp salt. They had a denser, fudgier texture with a bit more flavor and still retained moistness. I did not add the coffee extract to either batch as I don't have any and have actually never seen it anywhere. A bit of instant coffee might do as a replacement for that as I'm sure it adds to the recipe. I baked the recipe in muffin cups at the indicated temperature and time. Topped with butterscotch icing they made a yummy treat. My kids really liked both versions. Thanks for the recipe.
These really are amazingly delicious. They have a very soft, velvety texture and are more like chocolate cheesecake than a chewy brownie. I didn't have any coffee extract so I just used 1/2 t coffee granules instead, and subbed oil for butter. Mine were done at 20 minutes, so watch yours carefully because these are fantastic brownies.
nice brownies with a sticky and fairly fudgy texture yer let down by there slightly bland taste.
This was actually pretty good and quite easy. I doubled the recipe and did an 11x8 pan so it took a while longer to cook.
I also used all whole wheat flour and soy milk rather than butter milk. I didn't include the nuts of chocolate chips and it was fine without them. Although I did have some leftover chocolate frosting from another recipe so I used that to frost them and it was very yummy! The brownies were soft and chewy - not cakey. I used two whole eggs, rather than four egg whites (so it upped the fat content but was just easier to make).
Good brownie. For a healthier twist I used ground flax seed and water for the egg whites and all whole wheat pastry flour.
I like the idea of making treats and snacks for my family a little healthier, so I tried this recipe. My family loved it! I used chocolate chips but no nuts (some in my family don't like nuts), and I think the chocolate chips keep it from tasting too different from regular brownies.
I used oatmeal flour instead of all-purpose flour, and they turned out great. Might want to use the whole egg and use 1/2 cup applesauce, though.
