Best Fudgy Brownies

Sometimes--if you're like me--there are times you just have to have chocolate. That was the case for me last week. So I made these brownies, which I hadn't done in a while, and it reminded me how terribly good they are. They completely hit the spot for me. This recipe has only 8 ingredients, with no preservatives and no artificial anything. And for those who have never made brownies from scratch, I promise it's not hard!

Best Fudgy Brownies
Yield: about 12

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. baking cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/2 c. raw sugar
1/4 c. honey
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. whole wheat flour and 1/4 c. white flour (you can use all whole wheat if you don't mind a flatter brownie)
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 8 x 8 x 2 size pan.
In medium saucepan melt butter.
Remove from heat, add cocoa. Stir until well blended.
Add honey and raw sugar and mix well.
Add eggs one at a time and beat well.
Stir in vanilla, flour, and salt. Don't overbeat.
(Fold in 1/2 c. chopped nuts, if desired.)
Spread batter in greased pan. Bake 25-30 min or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Eat slowly and savor every delicious bite!

* If you are one who prefers a dark chocolate taste, skimp on the honey.

Note: If you prefer mint brownies, add 1 drop of peppermint essential oil (certified therapeutic grade only) to your batter and mix it in just before pouring into pan and baking.
