Chocolatey Deliciousness (aka Brownie Bites!)

Valentines Day: The perfect excuse to bake sweets.

After drooling over being inspired by Angela’s 2-bite brownies, I decided I needed some chocolatey brownie-ness in my life. It was good timing, given the Hallmark Holiday.

If there was an award for making heart shaped baked goods, I would have won the award for “Most Improved.” My brownies went from looking like Mickey Mouse to actually looking like hearts. Practices makes perfect. I’m also pretty sure I ate at least 2 brownies worth of dough. Oops. The ones picture below, however, were a trial run, and were just plan circle shapes. Keep in mind, it’s scientifically proven that heart shaped baked goods taste 78% percent better than circle shapes.

These were so freaking delicious

Here is what I used:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies – (adapted from Oh She Glows)

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup soymilk
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1  tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate, chopped

Mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside. Melt your coconut oil (if needed) and then stir it with the soymilk, agave, vanilla, and egg replacer. Now combine it with your dry ingredients, and stir in the peanut butter and chocolate.

I actually only used the peanut butter in some of them, because I wasn’t sure if it would be good. (Answer: it was heavenly) So I did a practice round of these on Saturday, and then made a fresh batch for my V-tine last night. His didn’t have PB in them, and they were good that way too.

Left: with coconut, middle: just chocolate, right: with peanut butter

 

Seriously, if you’re looking for a chocolate craving, go make these. You won’t be disappointed!

 

If you didn’t see it yesterday, make sure to enter my PB2 Giveaway!

 

Now, I’m off to go read The Omnivore’s Dilemma... I loved In Defense of Food but I haven’t gotten around to this one yet. I’m pretty excited!

  9. I would consider eating two brownies worth of dough something to be wholeheartedly celebrated, both because this dough must have been delicious and because that’s way less dough than I eat during my average baking!
