Eggless Oats & Wheat Brownies / Guilt Free Brownies

I have never tasted brownies before i came here few years back. Ever since i tasted these at Baskin Robbins they became my favorites. I am not a great fan of cream cakes and so brownies always substitute it. Whatever may be the texture, either cake like, spongy, moist, dense, fudgy  etc., i like them all and i like to try them too.
 I was searching for a basic brownie recipe and  found this to be interesting with the goodness of oats and wheat.

This is more of a cake like texture with a slight fudginess with the addition of chocolate chips. There is no eggs, no butter, no maida and made with oats & wheat  makes it a complete guilt free brownie. For the fudge texture i added choco chips .

Egg-less Oats & Wheat Brownie  Recipe - Ingredients:
Preparation time: 30 mins / Baking time: 30-35 mins / Recipe Category: Bakes / Recipe Reference : yummytummy

Wheat flour  - 1 cup
Oats   -   1/2 cup (powdered)
Sugar   -  3/4 cup ( I used brown sugar for a darker colour)
Cocoa powder  -  5 tbsp
Baking Soda  -  1 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil   -  3 tbsp
Yogurt   - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp (optional)
Chocolate chips  -  1/2 cup
Walnuts Chopped - 3 tbsp

Method :
1. Preheat the oven at 180 deg C and line a 8x8 inch pan with butter paper. Brush it with little butter or oil and keep ready.
2. Sieve the  wheat flour, oats, cocoa, soda and salt together so that it is evenly distributed.

3. Mix the sugar, oil yogurt and vanilla essence (if adding) and beat well till sugar dissolves.

4. Make a dent in the flour and pour the yogurt mixture and mix well. It will be bit thick batter.

5. Melt the chocolate using *double boiler  method or microwave it for 1 min and fold in the batter.

6. Fold in the walnuts.

7. Pour the prepared batter in the pan and bake it in the preheated oven for 30-35 mins till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

8. Cool for 5 mins and then invert it.

I do advice you to let it cool completely before cutting to get the perfect slices. I happened to cut just after inverting and i didn't get neat slices. This can be refrigerated for several days.

You can still enjoy it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge topping. Check for my more upcoming brownie recipes.

  • *Boil water in a bowl and place chocolate chips in another bowl to fit over the bowl containing water. See that the bowl holding chocolate should not be in contact with water else it will start to scorch. Chocolate melts fast so keep in low flame. Once melted switch off.
  • Yogurt reacts with soda which acts as a substitute for egg and helps the cake to rise.
  • You can also make this using  APF(maida) alone. 
  • If you are beginner in baking like me follow the correct measurements as for baking measurements are important.
