On another note, if you substitute the cocoa powder in this recipe for some carob powder, these brownies become a very yummy remedy for diarrhea--no joke! If you are going to use it as a diarrhea remedy, you'll want to skip the glass of milk you might otherwise drink with it, since dairy can further irritate the intestines.
|This time I made it with a combination of white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips|
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients in the order given. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
