Fudgy Brownies: Whole Wheat with Pumpkin



Fudgy Brownies: Whole Wheat with Pumpkin

Yield:  9″ x 13″


4 oz. unsweetened chocolate (like BAKERS)

1-3/4 cups (one 15 oz. can) unflavored pureed pumpkin

1-1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal (same as ground flaxseed)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups (one 10 oz. bag) dark chocolate chips, divided

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, divided



Spray or grease 9×13 baking pan; set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Chop unsweetened chocolate bar into 10-12 pieces, and to a  large microwaveable bowl, and microwave on high. Stop and stir every 30 seconds until there are a few chunks left that can be stirred and melted in. (Total microwave time is approx. 2 min.; actual time may vary).

To bowl with melted chocolate, add pumpkin, sugar, and vanilla and stir until uniformly mixed. Add flour, flaxseed, baking powder, and salt; stir until just combined– don’t over mix.  Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup nuts, just until evenly distributed.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread evening. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 nuts evenly over top of batter.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until set in middle and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with only moist crumbs. (If toothpick comes in contact with a melted chocolate chip, it will be coated in melted chocolate when it is removed. If so test in another place until you’ve tested a spot without a chocolate chip.)

Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Yield : 10 muffins


1 and 1/2 cups shredded zucchini

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s Special Dark)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp instant espresso powder
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line 10 muffin tins with cupcake liners. Set aside. Place the shredded zucchini on a couple paper towels and pat with additional paper towels to absorb some of the moisture

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and instant espresso togehter. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and lightly whisk until combined.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the zucchini the chocolate chips by hand. Mix just until evenly mixed. Divide the batter evenly among the 10 muffins tins and stick a few extra chocoalte chips onto the top of each muffin. Bake for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Check your muffins around 12 minutes and every minute until 15 because you definitely do not want these to dry out! Allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies


Yields:  18 pcs

Prep Time : 10 mins

Baking temp: 375°F

Baking time: 12 mins
Total time: 22 mins


2¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter unsalted butter, room temperature

½ cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

 Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies2


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a stand alone mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (can use hand held too), cream together butter and granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time and mix, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. Mixture may look clumpy.
  4. With the mixer on low-speed, slowly add the bowl of dry ingredients and mix just until dough comes together, it may be a little crumbly which is totally fine! You do not want to over mix the dough, otherwise the cookies can flatten when baked.
  5. Lastly mix in chocolate chips. Place dough in refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up. Dough will be pretty firm already, but I find that cooled dough bakes better. If the dough is too warm or sticky, the cookies may flatten out.
  6. Drop heaping spoonfuls of batter onto the baking sheet. Mine were about 3-4 tablespoons each.
  7. Bake for 9-12 minutes (baking time will depend on oven) until edges are golden. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes than transfer to cooling rack.

German Chocolate Brownie Bites


German Chocolate Brownie Bites

Yield:  4 dozens


For the brownie bites:

4 large eggs

1 1/4 cups baking cocoa

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups sugar

1 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup mini chocolate chips

For the frosting:

4 large egg yolks

1 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

1 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups chopped pecans, toasted

2 1/2 cups lightly packed sweetened flaked coconut



  1. Make the brownie bites:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, baking cocoa, salt, baking powder and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Stir in the sugar and melted butter until well combined. Stir in the flour, and then stir in the mini chocolate chips. (A firm rubber spatula works best.)
  5. Grease a non-stick mini muffin pan with cooking spray or butter and then spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of brownie batter into the greased cups. Bake the brownie bites for about 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Cool the brownie bites in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer them to a rack to cool completely while you make the coconut topping.
  7. Make the frosting:
  8. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the egg yolks, sugar and salt. Beat until combined.
  9. Beat in the butter, then gradually beat in the heavy cream and vanilla extract, scraping down sides as necessary.
  10. Pour the mixture into a medium non-stick saucepan. Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, for 15 to 20 minutes or just until the mixture thickens and begins to fluff. (There will be a noticeable change in the thickness of the mixture. Do not undercook it or the topping will be too runny.)
  11. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and let cool until it is room temperature then stir in the chopped toasted pecans and flaked coconut.
  12. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the topping onto each of the brownie bites. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container at room temperature.
  13. Kelly’s Note:
  14. Any leftover frosting can be served atop ice cream for German chocolate sundaes.
