Used two whole eggs and 100% whole wheat flour no white flour at all. The brownies were VERY moist really good and the chocolate lovers in our house even enjoyed these! Bake time was about 45 mins. My favorite dessert ever. Read More

The recipe as is isn't worth making again ( original score of 3 stars) unless you have dietary restrictions. However after implementing ideas left by other users such as; two whole eggs and I added specialty chocolate. After that I can say yes!!! It's the best!!! Its moist and substantial. I made double the recipe to help it fill the pan. Thanks everyone! final score 5 stars!!! Read More

Delicious and addictive! I was thrilled to find this recipe with carob. I made some alterations: whole wheat flour vs. all-purpose 2/3 cup brown sugar instead of white and added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Read More

These brownies are easy to make and they bake in no time. All my kids loved them and asked me to make them again. I used Earth balance instead of butter. I have also made these brownies with coco powder and they are great I prefer the carob. Very chewy and will cure a chocolate craving. Read More

That was really good. I have had carob powder in my cupboard for years and never got the perfect recipe to use it in. Finally! Also it was perfect because I had 2 leftover eggwhites that I needed to use up. I did use 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup and it still came out really sweet. I also used carob chips instead of walnuts as I did not hav any. Came out sooo good! The only thing I would say is that for some reason I felt that the batter was too little and it did not rise at all so I had a very thin brownie. I wonder if everyone got that result. They tasted perfect though! Rich chewy and so easy to make. Baked 30 mins as the recipe asks and that was enough. Read More

Last Sunday after an endless day grading papers I was looking for something to satisfy my chocolate cravings and this was the cure! I always make box brownies because I have never had any luck making them from scratch. These were so much better! I ate half the pan that night! Read More
