CARROT AND SPINACH BROWNIE




I was doing a search for Brownies on the internet when I ended up on Oprah.com. I've watched many of her talk shows and I think what she did was great. She gives alot back to the community and helps to bring many closer together. Among her much talk about in her show that I liked was about food. This Brownie recipe in her website seemed really yummy. It is not the usual Brownies you usually have because this is Brownie with Carrot and Spinach. I love Brownie and I also love Carrot Cakes. Spinach is one of my favourite vegetable and I always have it in a pie, baked with lots of cheese and mushrooms and onions. So this recipe is like a 3-in-1 for me.. All my favourite things.

Here's the recipe:
Oprah's Brownie (Carrot and Spinach)
NGREDIENTS

* Nonstick cooking spray
* 3 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
* 1/2 cup carrot puree
* 1/2 cup spinach puree
* 1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
* 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 2 Tbsp. trans-fat-free soft tub margarine spread
* 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
* 2 large egg whites
* 3/4 cup oat flour or all-purpose flour
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. salt


Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat an 8" x 8" baking pan with cooking spray.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or over a very low flame.

In a large bowl, combine the melted chocolate, vegetable purees, sugar, cocoa powder, margarine and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy, 1 to 2 minutes.

Whisk in egg whites. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt with a wooden spoon.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 bars.


Oh, and by the way. I wasn't searching for edible Brownie but actually the Brownies as in the little girls in camps thingy. After Brownies, they grow up to be Girl Guides. I was looking for the Brownie Handbook. But this search was fruitful too!
