Gooey Chocolate Chip Brownies

   

Hi! I am Keikilani

(pronounced Cake-ee-lawnee; and yes, it’s Hawaiian)

I am so thrilled at the opportunity be a contributer on Saving and More! Rachel and I went to college together and I love her blog!

I am a wife to a pretty awesome man, a mom to three amazing boys, a pastor’s wife, enjoy blogging about All My Good Things from God, and while there a few other hats I wear, my real hobby is cooking! (Okay... AND Eating!)

I am truly a dessert girl. Admittedly, I have been known to polish off half a bowl of cookie dough before even baking one cookie! (Sigh...It is my weakness)

When I was a little girl my mom quite often made Chocolate Chip Brownies that were amazing and gooey and oh, so yummy! (Not to mention extremely easy!) I have been making these brownies since elementary  I wanted to share them with you.

GOOEY CHOCOLATE CHIP BROWNIES

There is truly nothing quite like a warm gooey brownie. I prefer my brownies just under-baked. Because I am obsessed with cookie dough, this brownie recipe truly gives you that craving fulfillment!

First, grab yourself some butter!

(Ah, Butter. The stuff hips are made of!)

Melt that butter in the microwave into golden deliciousness!

Thin it out with a little hot water. (water is good for you!)

 And white sugar

Mix the butter, water, and sugars together to make a very happy family.

Ok...Back to Recipe...

Add your dry ingredients.

Stir them up and make sure there are no lumps!

Grab yourself a 9x13 pan (I like glass. less brown and crispy edges) Pour your delicious and golden batter into your pan.\

Spread your batter evenly around your pan.

My Rule #1 when baking... Never scrap the bowl too clean! There must be some left for tasting! (*Disclaimer: Consume raw eggs at your own risk)

Now the fun part... Grab handfuls of chocolate chips and start shoving them in your mouth!

Errr.... I mean, Start dropping them on top of the batter

IMG_3195

You may drop as many chocolate chips onto your batter as you like (and into your mouth)

 Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350F (don't over bake!)

Cut yourself a big piece while still warm and let the gooey-yummy-wonderfulness make your day better!

This recipe came from my mamma. I give her a lot of credit for my love for cooking! She did a good job of teaching me the basics. She added this recipe to The Ohana Cookbook (She is a pastor's wife in Hawaii. A few years ago she coordinated a church cookbook. Which is Awesome!)

Here is the full recipe for you!

CHOCOLATE CHIP BROWNIES

2/3 c. Margarine/Butter

2 T. Warm Water

1 c. Brown Sugar

1 c. White Sugar

2 Eggs

2 tsp. Vanilla

2 c. Flour

To make it allergy free...

  • Dairy Free - Substitute Butter for Avocado or Applesauce
  • Egg Free - Substitute Eggs for 2 TBS of Flaxseed/6 TBS of Water (let it sit for 10 minutes to get the desired consistency of an egg)
  • Wheat Free - Substitute Flour for Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour
