Slutty Brownies

Ok, I didn’t name this recipe. I know it sounds more like something out of a movie kids shouldn’t watch than a delicious dessert, but trust me, this is one of the richest, most decadent chocolate treats you’ll ever make. I found this recipe online and knew I had to try it. It’s pretty simple. Use your favorite recipe to whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough (I find the good old Nestle Tollhouse recipe works pretty well) and fill a 9×13 pan about a 3rd of the way up. Next cover the cookie dough with a layer of Oreo cookies. And finally, stir up a batch of brownie batter (go ahead make it easy with a boxed mix). Cover the Oreo cookie layer with the brownie batter. Cook as you normally would a pan of brownies, testing with a toothpick when done. These are great any way you eat ’em, but when you get ’em still warm, it’s especially excellent. Enjoy!

Blueberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Having been unable to find a blueberry muffin recipe that I really liked, I created my own. It contains less sugar and more blueberries than most and for an extra punch of tastiness, I mixed in some oatmeal and some chocolate chips. I’ve been eating these all week and haven’t wanted to destroy the evidence yet, so I’ll post the recipe. I actually had a few plates of these disappear this weekend, so apparently others find them edible as well (a rare occurrence that I’ll be sure to savor). Enjoy.

1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup of rolled oats (oatmeal)
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tbs of baking powder
1 1/4 cups of milk (I used raw milk, but 2% or even skim would probably work fine)
1 egg
1/3 cup canola (or similar) oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pint blueberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the liquid ingredients in a separate bowl. Slowly add the liquid ingredients to the dry, adding in blueberries and chocolate chips. Stir until blended and a batter forms.

Spoon the batter into muffin pan filling each cup 1/2 to 3/4 high. Bake at 400 degrees for around 20 min. Muffins are done when firm to the touch and tops are golden brown.

Makes 12-15 muffins
