Raisin Oatmeal Brownie

Have been craving to make brownie ever since my good friend gave us a bar of really good quality dark chocolate. As usual, would want to make a healthier version of the brownie, so source the net and stumble upon this recipe from recipesource.com. This recipe uses oat. The brownie turns out slightly dry for my liking and not as sweet tasting (maybe because I cut down the sugar too much). But it was really easy and maybe next time I try again and put more butter to make it more moist or even replace butter with canola oil or applesauce.

Here's the recipe:

Raisin Oatmeal Brownie
  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oat
  • 6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips (I used about 3/4 cup of gourmet dark chocolate instead)
  • 6 tbs butter (I used about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup unbleached flour (I used 1/2 cup of unbleached flour and 1/4 cup of wholemeal flour to increase the nutritional content)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 salt
  1. Sprinkle 2 tbs of oats over bottom of greased 9x9x2 inch baking pad; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stir constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and blend in sugar.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  5. Stir together flour, soda, salt, remaining oats and raisins. Stir into chocolate mixture.
  6. Spoon into prepared pan.
  7. Bake at 325 def F. for about 30 mintues.
  8. Cool and cut into bars.
