Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Dark Chocolate Coconut Brownies!

The Best Dark Chocolate Coconut Brownies!
I know everyone always says it but these truly are THE BEST!
If you didn't get a change to check out the guest post I did based on these brownies you can check it out here. I even Vlogged it!
Here's the recipe and yes it's the full fat version. You can substitute apple sauce for half the butter and it will still taste "good" but not "great" like with REAL butter!
½ cup butter – room temp
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
½ cup Whole White Wheat flour
1/3 cup Special Dark Cocoa
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup sliced almonds
1 cup shredded sweet coconut
Handful of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9x9 pan. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; beat well with spoon. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, almonds & coconut. Add flour mixture to egg mixture & stir just until blended. Spread evenly into pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on rack.
