Quick Dark Chocolate Brownies

Do you need a sure thing brownie recipe? Here it is. This recipe for Quick Dark Chocolate Brownies has been in my recipe arsenal for nine years. I think it is a terrific idea to start off the week with a dessert recipe.

With Father’s Day and July 4th coming up, these brownies will come definitely come in handy. I consider these brownies to be better-for-you. They  are rich in chocolate, but balanced in sweetness by almonds, which also add a little crunch. You can substitute your favorite chocolate for the dark chocolate chips.

I originally developed this recipe for Canola.org for the World Health Day campaign, one of my favorite recipe projects. You will find a lot of fabulous recipes on their site. Here’s to starting the week off with something chocolate and sweet!

Reduced-Fat Desserts for Parties: Dark and Semisweet Chocolate Brownies

IMG_2661

I have a lot of of television cooking segments coming up next month in Birmingham and Nashville. One of which is making “lower” fat desserts. Everyone wants ideas for great, easy desserts to take to a party, and if they are reduced-fat, even better. I like to use a combination of dark and semisweet chocolate and all egg whites in these Dark and Semisweet Chocolate Brownies. Feel free to make them with or without nuts but just remember: keep a glass of cold milk (or red wine) nearby.
