I can’t even begin to describe how awesome these are. I was a little hesitant since I’ve never made brownies from scratch before, but they were easy and give you all the ooey goodness of the boxed stuff. You could probably just use 1/4 c. of prepared chai latte, but why do that when you can make it yourself?
Preheat oven to 350.
1/4 c. skim milk
a dash of cardamom
3 whole allspice
a dash of cinnamon
add these ingredients to a pot and bring to a quick boil. Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain into a large microwave safe bowl.
1/4 c. chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1/2 c. egg substitute
1 1/2 c. flour
1. c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 t. baking powder
To bowl of chai, add butter and chocolate. Microwave about 30 seconds until melted. Stir until smooth. Let cool for a minute. Add egg. Sift in remaining dry ingredients and mix until it forms a stiff batter.
Bake in a pan sprayed with oil, about 25 minutes until set. Let cool, and cut into 20 pieces.
