Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 34 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 12 cup purple puree
  • 14 cup flour (mix equal parts white flour, whole wheat flour, and wheat germ, 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp of flour)
  • 14 cup rolled oats, ground in a food processor
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 14 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter or spray only the bottom (not the sides) of a 13-by-9-inch or 9-inch square baking pan.
  3. Melt the butter and chocolate chips together in a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water (or in a microwave, checking every 15 seconds). Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool a bit.
  4. Meanwhile, in another bowl, stir together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, and Purple Puree. Combine this purple egg mixture with the cooled chocolate mixture.
  5. In a mixing bowl, stir together Flour Blend, cocoa powder, oats, and salt. Add this to the chocolate mixture and blend thoroughly.
  6. Pour the entire mixture into the baking pan.
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in pan before cutting the brownies.
