Spinach Chocolate Brownies

Spinach Chocolate Brownies

G-man was bugging me this morning to make spinach chocolate cake. Seriously. The Cadet started chanting, “Cake, cake, cake!” so it was official. We were skipping Sesame Street to hang out in the kitchen.

To make an 8”x11” pan of Spinach Chocolate Brownies:

1 package frozen spinach

1 1/2 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
6 tbsp flaxseed meal

1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup cocoa powder

3/4 white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas

Cook the spinach and set aside. I like to toss it into a Pyrex dish, frozen, and microwave it.

Preheat the oven to 375F

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and flax. Set aside.

Pour boiling water and melted butter into a blender. Add cocoa powder and blend. Add sugar, spinach, eggs, milk, bananas and vanilla. Blend again until liquefied. Pour liquid from blender into flour mixture and mix well. (The batter will appear greenish, but once it is baked it will be brown.) Pour the batter into a greased cake pan. 

Bake for about 40 minutes. A knife will not come out completely clean, but there should not to be unbaked batter stuck to it.
