- Mix maida, coco powder and baking powder and sieve it once. Then add oats powder to it and mix well.
- In another bowl mix oil, sugar and milk, whisk it until sugar completely dissolves.
- Make a well in the center of the maida mixture and add in milk mixture slowly. Fold in the melted chocolate. Whisk it well without any lumps forming. Finally add the chopped walnuts.
- Preheat the oven at 180 deg C for 10mins. Meanwhile transfer the batter to a greased baking tin and bake it for about 30-35mins.
- Insert a toothpick in the center to check if its cooked then switch off else give another 5minutes but not more than that.
- Cool down completely and then cut into squares and enjoy your healthy brownies.
- The melted chocolate with the goodness of walnut will hide the oats taste so enjoy your guiltfree brownies.
- You can substitute maida with wheat flour as in the orginal recipe for a completely healthier option.
- I used chocolate chips but you can use any cooking chocolate. Melt it using the double boiler method – Boil water in a big bowl and fit another bowl containing chocolate or choco chips over the big bowl. Simmer the flame once the water starts to boil. Once the chocolate is melted completely switch off. Check here for a thumbnail view
- The addition of nuts is purely optional but recommended as the crunchy nuts compliements well with the chocolatey brownies.
- The top layer was slightly fudgy and inside was very soft and yummy.
I love nuts in any cake either chocolate or vanilla flavoured esp walnuts definitely adds a unique flavour to the cake. So I make sure I use atleast a tbsp of nuts in most of my bakes even when the orginal recipe doesnt call for it 😉
