Blonde Brownies

I often clip recipes from magazines, newspapers, etc. Using a glue stick I paste them into my wire-bound notebook (which is getting a bit decrepit). Tonight I had the urge to bake something. It feels like it has been forever since I’ve baked and very much enjoy it. I found a recipe I clipped from Cooking Light and tweaked it a bit. I have a problem with following recipes and not tweaking them. I admit it.

Butterscotch Brownies
2 c. all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup white and 1 wheat)
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar (I used 2 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. of salt (I omitted this since I used salted butter)
10 T. unsalted butter (I used 1 stick butter, 2 T. coconut oil)
3/4 cup egg substitute (2 eggs for me)
Cooking spray (which I don’t think you need because the batter was greasy as heck, but whatever)

Oven, 350. Preheat it. Measure flower, combine with sugar, baking powder and salt. Heat butter over medium heat to brown it, said the recipe. I don’t like to heat animal fats (unless they’re organic) too high like that, so I kind of skimped on it (freak, I know). Cool 10 minutes. Mix the butter with the egg; mix it well. Pour butter mix over flour mix; stir until just moistened. (Here I added about 1/2 chopped pecans and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips). Spoon into greased pan (see note about the greasing above). Cook 30 minutes, cool in pan on wire rack, cut and enjoy.

It is in the oven now. Will update later with pictures and taste evaluation.
