Rocky Road Brownies

Rocky Road Brownies.
What I love about this recipe is that you can substitute some of the ingredients if you don’t have them on hand.

1 2/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup organic sugar or a stevia blend that measures cup for cup
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons of unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I used a combination of natural and dutched)
1-teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup of cold water
¼ cup canola oil
1 tablespoon distilled vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 ounces of either peanut butter chips, caramel chips, Heath chips, or any other chip you can find)
1 cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts (I used almonds in the video)
3 ounces  60% Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup mini marshmallows

Chocolate Syrup Brownies

Wow!  These brownies are so good and versatile.  I made them with my Homemade Chocolate Syrup Of course you can use store bought but homemade syrup tastes better, is better for you and only takes 4 ingredients.  And while I haven’t tried it yet , using Nutella in place of chocolate syrup also sounds good.

Here’s what you need:

½ cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3/4 to 1 cup sugar (adjust the sugar to your taste.  I prefer mine less sweet and use 3/4 cup)
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups Homemade Chocolate Syrup
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
