I got this delightful recipe from my mom just the other day, which was long overdue because this was a family favorite of ours growing up. I don't know why I had delayed so long in getting it, because these are a real treat and so easy! I made them a bit healthier by using 100% white whole wheat flour, which is just as healthy but nicer for baking than regular red whole wheat.
We all enjoyed them, particularly Grant. I have a feeling these will become a pretty regular dessert around here.
1 lb brown sugar (2 cups firmly packed)
2/3 cup canola oil or expeller-pressed coconut oil
1 t. vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour (all purpose or white whole wheat, or combination)
1/2 t. salt
2 1/2 t. baking powder
6-8 oz chocolate chips
1 cup nuts, optional
- Preheat oven to 350. Mix sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla, combining well.
- Sift dry ingredients, then add to wet, mixing until combined.
- Stir in chips and nuts.
- Spread in a greased 13 x 9 inch pan; bake for 22-28 minutes, or until toothpick tests clean.
See how easy that is? Be sure to not overbake them.
