Last week, I decided to do some baking as I haven't had alot of time lately to do that.
I made some Roger's 9 Grain Chocolate Chip Cookies. Tobias loves these cookies. And I love them because they are nutritious and there is not as much flour and sugar as in a 'regular' cookie recipe. :)
I also made some brownies, as Mateo loves brownies. A while back I had bought a huge container of cocoa powder to make hot chocolate and other chocolatey goodies. I noticed that there was a recipe on the back of the container for brownies.
The only problem was that it called for over 2 cups of white sugar. Yikes, I didn't want to be putting that much white sugar into a 13x9 pan of brownies. My kids have enough energy as it is and don't need an extra kick start! :)
I had a huge container of honey and thought, "I wonder if I could substitute the honey for white sugar?" I did a search on the internet and what I found said that honey could be substituted for white sugar in most baking recipes. So I went ahead and was excited to do a baking experiment. :)
The only thing that I would need to do though, is reduce the amount of honey used per cup of sugar. The reason being is that honey is sweeter than sugar and because it is a liquid, it will make your batter more runny. So for every cup of sugar, I used 3/4 cups of honey.
The result? The brownies turned out great and tasty! They had a slight hint of honey taste, but nothing overpowering. They were moist and chewy. Mateo loved them!
