Eggless Oats Brownies using Whole Wheat Flour

Oats, such a healthy grain which makes everything made from that healthy too. You could probably add that to anything you make starting from the regular breakfast dosa or idli to the goodies like cakes and bars. I have a wide range of oats recipes in my blog. you should take a look at it.

Making a cake using oats was always in my mind for quite a long time. Its because i want to bake something so healthy. You can check out my healthy dates cake which i baked long time ago. So i came up with this recipe which calls for wheat flour and no butter. And as a added bonus it is eggless, so everyone can dig in.

The cool thing about this recipe is, the chocolate chips which you add on top of the brownies sink a little inside the brownies creating a beautiful presentation. And not to mention, it makes the brownies taste heavenly. You should try this out and let me know what you think.

Yum! Love the use of oat combined with wheat flour. Yogurt did a fine job in keeping these brownies moist.

Had a quick question - what if I wanted I make these without oats?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks for your prompt reply though I wanted to try this one specifically since its made with whole wheat. So please suggest a substitute for oats if possible :) thanks again!

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@UnknownLeave oats and add same amount of wheat flour. I think it will work, but i have never tried it so far

Hi Aarthi,

I tried this just now and it came out very well. The only problem I found was the top of my cake (crust) was little bit hard. Any suggestions on how can I avoid that? Thanks

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@SeemaBrownies usually meant to have a little crust on top of it. If it is too hard and the cake itself is hard, then you must have baked it longer

@SeemaBrownies usually meant to have a little crust on top of it. If it is too hard and the cake itself is hard, then you must have baked it longer. You must have placed the oven tray on the top rack close to the heating element. Always place the rack in the middle.
