Wellness Wednesday: It’s Healthy Recipe Time – Carob Brownies

Here is the deal! When COVID and other challenges get you down and you feel like a sweet treat will soothe your sorrows, you do have options. There are really unhealthy options (you know what those are). There are also guilt-free treats that you may not have thought existed – tasty, nutritious, satisfying options! We probably should not use food to comfort us, but good food will at least provide a few precious moments of enjoyment.

Let’s see what our all-star health maven, Donna Green-Goodman has cooked up for us this week (pun very much intended). -Online Content Manager

Carob Brownies
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup turbinado sugar
1 tablespoon EnerG Egg Replacer OR 3 tablespoons Just Egg
1 heaping teaspoon Featherweight Baking Powder

1 ½ teaspoons Roma
½ cup carob (bean) powder
¾ cup canola oil
1 cup plain plant milk
4 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla flavoring
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts and/or 1 cup carob chips (optional)

In a mixing bowl measure all dry ingredients. In another container, measure and mix all liquid ingredients. Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients and mix together quickly. Add optional nuts and carob chips. Place batter into an 8×12 baking dish that has been sprayed with vegetable oil spray. Place in a 350-degree oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. May frost if desired. Serves 10-12
