I was browsing through some cookbooks the other day, searching for some inspiration, and stumbled upon a recipe for Honey Brownies. My first reaction was to turn the page, because the idea of honey and chocolate sounded well, different. I decided to give it a try anyway, because I appreciate any recipe that can substitute artificial sugar for natural sweeteners. While this recipe is not completely free of artificial sugars, it is a bit healthier than the average brownie.
As for the honey and chocolate combination? BRILLIANT! These brownies contain just the right amount of sweetness, with just the right amount of chocolate flavoring. They create a delicious coating of honey on your tongue, leaving you with a soothing aftertaste. Both my husband and I couldn’t stop commenting on the after affect of it’s flavors. You just gotta try these Honey Brownies! 🐝 I made a few modifications to the original recipe, so I’m sharing my version below. Enjoy!
1 C Milk Chocolate Chips
6 Tbsp Butter
1/3 C Honey
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
Dash of Salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
- Melt chocolate chips and butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Stir in eggs, honey and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until just blended. Spread batter in pan.
- Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick entered into the center comes out clean. Mine took exactly 23 minutes.
