Whole Wheat Brownies

This is a great brownie recipe that my mom created. It uses 100% whole wheat flour, so you don’t feel quite as guilty indulging in them, but I wouldn't consider them a health food ;) They are wonderful with vanilla ice cream, or just by themselves with a big glass of milk. They can be made even healthier by using homemade butter, freshly ground flour, and fresh yard eggs…

Whole Wheat Brownies

1 c. butter, softened

2 c. sugar

5 eggs

½ c. cocoa

1 t. vanilla

1 c. whole wheat flour*

Cream together butter, sugar and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and pour in a 9inX13in baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

You can also stir in nuts and chocolate chips when you add the flour.

*We normally use the Golden 86 or Prairie Gold varieties. White flour can also be used.
