Homemade Brownies!

We all love pinterest.. or rather we love to hate it:) A LONG time ago I saw this recipe for homemade brownies and since we have been striving to eat box items that are 5 or less  we were on the hunt for a yummy brownie mix. Insert Pinterest!!!!!

I then gathered all the supplies and began mixing up this yummy dessert…

DSC03786I did add chocolate chips to my batter..(I would not recommend this because where the chips were it seemed uncooked)..

Other than adding in the chips i followed the recipe exact! IT WAS gone!! That same night! SOO I am guess it was a huge hit!!

The Next (4 times) time I made this I double the recipe.. And I am thinking about substituting oil for applesauce..I’ve done it before with other things so I think its time to try it on this one.. I will update when I do that!

Other than those things I would say this was a HUGE hit AND KEEPER! for the Kent family! And since my husband is a chocolate nerd I have decided to make up some dry mix bags of this for quick mixing..(kind of like the box only without any crazy yucky stuff!!)


I currently have a double batch on my stove 3/4’s gone!:) Let me know how you like it!!

1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Flour
