The BEST Fudgy Brownies
I love chocolate! I like it in any pretty much any form but I especially love the really dark, rich stuff. For me, when I want dessert I want chocolate and that often means rich, fudgy brownies. I have always loved brownies and used to make them all the time as a teenager. I don’t make them as often anymore, I eat a lot healthier than I used to, but I still enjoy them from time to time. When I was younger, I would mostly use a box mix but once I developed this recipe I could never go back. These brownies are rich, fudgy, and super chocolaty just the way they should be!
I know brownies don’t really fit into my usually low-carb, high-veggie, healthy diet, but it’s okay to splurge every once in awhile. I like to indulge in something incredibly delicious like this, or these Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, when I’m craving something sweet! Remember not to beat yourself up for eating what you want, just try to balance it out by eating healthy regularly and staying active. That way you can afford a few extra calories when you want. These brownies would be great at the end of race day, or after a long hike.
I made the switch to using only whole wheat flour for all of my cooking and baking a few years ago, which is healthier than the bleached stuff. Whole wheat flour is high in fiber and minerals making it much more nutritious than regular all-purpose flour but can have a grittier texture. To avoid that texture issue I use Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour which is ground to a finer texture than most whole wheat flours. Anyways, enough about health, back to the good stuff!
