Brownie Recipe

I like this recipe because it is easy to make and you can mix the whole thing up in one bowl without getting the mixer out. The “not so secret” ingredient Shaklee Instant Protein Soy Mix raises the protein and nutrient level and you can’t taste it at all. It helps you feel a little less guilty for indulging. Enjoy!

Fudgy Cocoa Soy Brownies

3/4 cup cocoa*
2/3 cup butter or oil
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup Shaklee Instant Soy Protein*
*1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts (optional)

Stir cocoa and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Blend in 1/3 cup of the butter (melted). Add boiling water, stir until mixture thickens. Stir in sugar, eggs, and other 1/3 cup of butter until smooth. Add flour and Instant Soy Protein, salt and vanilla. Add nuts if desired and blend completely.
Bake in a lightly greased and floured 9”x13” baking pan or two 8” square pans. 350 degrees 35-40 minutes for 9”x13” pan, 30-32 for 8” pan. Cool for 10-15 minutes – cut into squares. Makes 12-18 brownies depending on size.
For lower fat 1/3 cup of the butter can be substituted with applesauce.
* I use Cocoa from Penzeys Spices in Madison.
**You can  Soy to 2/3 cup and decrease flour to 2/3 cup.

I usually dust the top with powdered sugar, but you can also make a chocolate frosting.
