Cherry, Cashewnut & Oatmeal Brownies

>> January 14, 2011

 

When you don't have many oatmeal porridge fans at home, the only way to add it in our diet  is to change the logic in which it is cooked. I hide the oats in pancakes, bread, sweet & savory dumplings, soups and also tried adding it in brownies. 

The brownie had a chewy texture. It was much to my dislike....so I leave a choice to you, if you like chewy brownies add oats other substitute it with flour and go ahead with the following recipe.As regards the cherry and cashew, it was very tasty. Cherry in chocolate is a really lovely combination. 

the recipe

bittersweet chocolate - 100 gms
butter - 100 gms
eggs - 2
sugar - 3/4 cup
cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
cherry - 1/4 cup
cashewnuts - 1/4 cup
flour - 1/2 cup
oats - 1/4 cup
vanilla extract - 3/4 tsp

the method

Preheat oven at 170 C. Prepare a square pan and line it with a butter paper.

Chop the chocolate and butter into small cubes and place it in a mixing bowl (this will be the mixing bowl for the entire brownie batter). Place the bowl in simmering hot water. Stir the chocolate and butter until they melt. Take it out of the double boiler and rest it until it becomes warm. 

Certain recipes recommend the use of whisk instead of electric beater to beat the sugar and eggs. But I strongly recommend the use of electric beater at speed 1 or 2.

When the chocolate mix is warm add the sugar spoon by spoon until well incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and eggs. Add the eggs one by one. Mix the flour, cocoa powder and oats. Add it to the chocolate and mix well. Mix the cherry and cashew nuts with a tablespoon of flour and add half of it to the batter. Pour the batter to the prepared pan. Sprinkle other half of cherry and cashew on top of the batter.  Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Keep checking after 30 minutes. The cherry, cashew and oatmeal brownies are done when a toothpick inserted comes out with few lumps of cooked batter.

The recipe goes to Priya’s CWF – Oats event started by Kiran

Roshan,this is such a healthy brownie with the chocolate & cherry goodness. Do you use ground oats or the regular ones...I am wondering as you said the brownie is chewy.

hi Kavitha

I used regular oats (flakes)......i tried using toasted oats in a sweet dumpling recently and it dint taste chewy....i guess toasting would take away the chewiness...

cheers...

I do not like to eat oats in porridge too! But I really like them in cookies, bars and crunchies. I guess I may substitue the oats with wholemeal flour instead, and use the oats for sprinkling on top. Thanks for sharing.
