Whole Wheat Walnut Cranberry Brownies

I thought it would be pretty cool to be able to have brownies for breakfast. With 2/3 cup of whole wheat and not as much sugar as most brownie recipes, these are healthy and delicious, not bad for a morning meal. Recipe courtesy, with cranberries and extra walnuts added.

Whole Wheat Walnut Cranberry Brownies

2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped
3/4 cup dried cranberries

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl combine the oil, milk, water, eggs, and vanilla. Now mix everything together including the chocolate chips and walnuts, be careful that you don’t over mix.

Pour the brownie batter into an 8×8 nonstick pan. Drop in a few more chopped walnuts on the top and bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Use a toothpick in the middle of the pan to check if it is done. Enjoy!
