Whole Wheat Eggless Walnut Brownies

My hubby loves sizzling brownies, also had to think of a dessert for a lunch so gave a try to Wheat Brownies, yes they are egg less and awesome. They turned out to be pretty soft and chewy.
Every bite had crunchy walnut bumping in my mouth which made the taste more interesting.
I am slowly trying to adapt some of my recipes to make them healthier by using more of wheat flour, using less butter .. etc
And to motivate me Madhuram always has a ongoing event !! here is another one for you Madhuram for the Whole grain eggless baking event.
Whole Wheat Eggless walnut Brownies
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup water
1/3rd cup butter
21/2 Tbs coco powder
2cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2tsp baking pwd
3/4th cup w walnuts
1/4th tsp salt.
Mix water with 1/3rd cup flour and heat in a nonstick n low heat until a smooth paste.
Let the mix cool. Along side mix butter with coco pwd and heat to a smooth paste on low low flame.
Add sugar to the cooled flour-water mix and add rest of the flour, vanilla essence , salt, baking powder,Mix it along with butter and coco mix. Blend all of in a blender until smooth.
Mix in your nuts and pour into a greased tin. Bake at 180deg for about 30 min.

You can make variations by adding almonds, choco-chips etc etc :)Server hot along with cold ice-cream!!


  1. Thanks Mahima for another interesting and yummy entry. I think the flour and water are mixed together to make an egg substitute. I vaguely remember reading it somewhere. The brownie pieces have come out perfect.

  2. Wow they look so fluffy and moist, love these!

  3. Hi Mahima,
    I have the same question as the previous post. Does the recipe call for two and half cups of Cocoa powder or is it a measure in tablespoons?
    Please clarify.
    I am waiting to bake it for my kids and hubby !!!

  4. Soumya .. m soo sorry for the late reply, its my typing error you are correct its 21/2 table spoons.

    1. You can use equally the same amount. 1/3rd cup oil.
