Dr. Oetker Knows Brownies

The other day I had a craving for boxed brownies, like my mom used to make.


I know the Duncan Hines I grew up with is so very tasty, but it isn't exactly healthy - it's completely processed and made with white flour and white sugar. So I checked to see if I could find a healthier version at the health food store.

I picked up a box of Dr. Oetker's Organic Brownie Mix. I was skeptical about how they would taste, and positive they wouldn't look anything like the gorgeous picture on the front of the box.

All you had to do was add 2 eggs and a 1/4 cup of butter (I substituted Canola oil). I also took it upon myself to add some walnuts and white chocolate chips.

I have to say, they were pretty darn tasty - Lightly crispy on the edges, and moist and chewy on the inside. I wouldn't compare them to my mother's Duncan Hines brownies, but they were definitely not at all flat and tasteless like No Pudge Brownie Mix.

I'm going to keep a box of Dr. Oetker's brownie mix on hand in case of a chocolate emergency. But if time allows for it, I'd definitely recommend making them from scratch instead.
