I've never posted about food before but there is always a first. I was so excited I had to share this recipe. Cooking is one of my many crafts and as a wife and mother of 4 I am always cooking. I frequently have to make something out of nothing for dinner and often our best ideas come out of necessity.
I NEEDED something sweet but most recipes call for eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, and butter. What was I going to do? I didn't have any of those. This really limited my options for something sweet.
I found a no egg recipe online and tweaked it. It called for butter and brown sugar but I used oil and white sugar instead. I wasn't sure if it would work but it did! Can you believe it? They taste just like brownies.
I didn't know if the recipe would work so I made 3 desserts from one recipe. I divided the batter into thirds. I cooked some plain, some with oat meal, and some in a pan like brownies. I added a no bake cheese cake topping to the brownies. Now, I have sweets for tomorrow too!
I hope you try this recipe, you will thank me. Leave a comment and let me know if you do.
