Everything about them is perfect! The taste, the texture and even the way they look is superb!
But, have you ever tried to make carrot brownies???
I made those yesterday and I know it sounds insane but they were DELISH!
You see…I had some leftover shredded carrots from a meal I made a few days ago. Since I am not a fan of wasting food, I decided to play around with some ingredients which resulted in these yummy carrot brownies.
They were rich and chocolatey and the addition of peanut butter m&m candies along with coconut took the flavor to the top! Those carrots added a bit of chewiness which was fascinating!
No wonder these brownies were gone within a day
While I was photographing these brownies, my little one was sitting in his bouncer…
And his face would light up every time I showed him the box of m&m! Maybe he likes red! hehe
That’s when I realized my little baby is growing up so fast…
He grabbed the box…
And held it for 1 WHOLE MINUTE all by himself!
That was long enough for mommy to take photographs! lol
And then, he got bored…
And dropped it…
Refusing to hold it again…
I can’t wait to see what he tries to do next…heheh
Anyways, back to those brownies…
To make them, you will need the following ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 cup finely shredded carrots (if the carrots are chunky, you will be able to taste them in the brownies and that’s just odd!)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup light olive oil
1/2 cup fat free milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter m&m candies
And here are the steps:
In a deep bowl, mix all the ingredients except for the m&m candies.
When batter is thoroughly mixed, stir in m&m and and mix with a spoon.
Pour into a cookie pan (lately, I have been lining my pans with aluminum foil when making brownies. I find it’s easier to peel off the brownies by doing this rather than using parchment paper)
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (15 minutes would result in more gooey brownies and 20 minutes will yield dense and firm brownies)
