Recipe of the Week: Jen’s Storage Foods Brownies

Jen kindly sent us three recipe options for small batches of brownies baked in a bread loaf pan.  Jen says: “Make a small batch of brownies when you need a little “comfort food” fix.  It will help make your supplies of these ingredients last longer.”

The traditional recipe utilizes fresh ingredients.

Both just-add-water mixes use powdered eggs and powdered vanilla extract.  You can find powdered vanilla extract [1] in upper-end grocery stores right near the liquid vanilla extract and on Amazon.com.

Just-add-water mix #1 has straight coconut oil.

Mix #2 replaces some of the coconut oil with butter powder and water and thus the brownies are a little less oily.

Both mixes can be prepared in advance with water added later when you’re ready to bake.  However, before you make multiple mixes, make one batch to try out first.  These recipes produce fudgy brownies, not cake-like brownies.  These are not overly sweet brownies.

¼ cup butter ¼ cup coconut oil 2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons butter powder

Jen! What a neat idea to include alternatives (or substitutions) for the ingredient list. Thank you for sharing. This was such a neat way to present a recipe!

Be careful of your ingredients, the phony “vanilla” powder is aspartame-non dairy coffee creamer with phony “vanilla like” artificial flavor. This is not for cooking (or human) consumption.
