Brownies & Strawberries

Oh me, oh my!  These brownies were a delight.  A great addition to our evening of Agricola.  Which -- seriously is a great game.  

These rich brownies had a nice crunchy top and a moist center.  They were great topped with strawberries and whipped cream.  

Brownies and Strawberries 
Brownie recipe adapted from A Cozy Kitchen

3/4 C sugar (I used just slightly less)
1/3 C whole wheat flour
1/3 C white wheat flour (or all-purpose)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 T butter
3/4 C dark chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

Begin by combining the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl.  

I used dark chocolate chips... because dark chocolate is excellent.  And, has antioxidants.  Fights off those free radicals -- and, makes me feel like these are "healthy".  

Melt the butter and chocolate chips together ... slowly!  Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval.  Meanwhile mix together the dry ingredients in a second bowl. 

When the chocolate butter mixture is melted, pour in with the flour mix.  

Then, add the eggs and vanilla.  

Mix until well blended.  

Pour brownies in a lightly greased 8x8 inch glass baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  A toothpick should come out mostly clean... but, do not over bake the brownies as they will get dry!!

Allow the brownies to cool down; then slice and serve.  

Slice up a few strawberries.  If desired, mash them 1-2 times with a potato masher and sprinkle with 1 tsp or less of sugar.  Serve atop brownies, alongside a scoop of ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
