The Best "From Scratch" Brownies

I'm forever trying to find ways to cut out processed foods and learn tasty recipes that can take the place of mixes that have who knows what in them. 

I've now found a brownie recipe that does just that!

It's tasty and the edges cook up all nice and chewy.  Yummmm! So much better than a box and you know exactly the quality of ingredients going into it!

Want to make some? Sure you do!

Yummy From Scratch Brownies

1 cup of butter melted
2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup of flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt

Now, the way I do this is so that the edges and crust are nice and chewy and a little crystalized.  If you don't want it that way I'll tell you another way to do it.

Either way, heat oven to 350 and combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

If you want the chewy edge...melt the butter in a microwave safe dish, add in the cocoa powder and sugar, then vanilla.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.

If you want a less chewy, crystalized edge, melt the butter in a pan on medium heat, add cocoa and sugar until sugar is dissolved.  Move to a bowl and gradually add in dry ingredients.

Feel free to add in extras like nuts or chocolate chips or coconut! 

Pour batter into a greased 9 by 13in pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides.

Enjoy! They are my favorite and a new "go to". :)
