The Not-Brownie Brownies

'Tis the season...
for baking and filling the house with warmth and flavors...
for experimenting and meddling with tried-and-trusted recipes...
for accidentally stumbling upon a new family favorite...

And that's how The Not-Brownie Brownies happened.

½ cup flour
¼ cup oat bran
¼ cup chopped walnuts
¼ tsp salt
¾ tsp baking powder (mine is a bit old; reduce to ½ tsp baking powder if fresh)

¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup coarse sugar
2 Tbsp Chocolate Ovaltine
4 Tbsp Dark Cocoa powder (adjust to taste)
3 eggs
1 tsp Madagascar vanilla extract
¾ cup canola oil

Cooking spray or vegetable shortening for greasing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl; combine the wet ingredients and mix them well
  3. Slowly fold in the dry mixture into the wet mixture
  4. Pour the thick batter into a greased 13"x 9" baking pan and bake in a 350° F oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, turning part-way
  5. For the not-too-soft texture, cook a bit longer to get it a bit crispy and then allow it to cool so it tastes even better as it ages
