I love making brownies be it of any kind. Whether it’s a cheesecake brownie or an oreo brownie or the regular classic dark chocolate brownie. But this brownie is different than all of those decadent brownies. This eggless aata jaggery brownies is so light, considerably healthy than your regular brownies and so delicious at the same time.
Making brownies in microwave for a single person has now become my cheat go to brownies for when I don’t have enough time to bake the whole batch in the oven. Try these quick equally decadent and healthier brownies which comes together in just 10 minutes. Let’s get to the ingredients.
INGREDIENTS USED IN EGGLESS AATA JAGGERY BROWNIE
I have used this salted butter for this eggless aata jaggery brownie. Feel free to use unsalted if that’s what you have in hand. Make sure you add a pinch of salt in case you are using unsalted butter.
I have used this dark chocolate chips for that chocolatey goodness in these eggless aata jaggery brownie. Feel free to use milk chocolate chips in place of dark if that’s your game.
For the sweetener, I have used this jaggery powder as I wanted these brownies to be free from refined sugar. I am very sure, when you serve these delicious brownies to your parents and grandparents, they will be thrilled to know these eggless brownies have jaggery! The flavor of jaggery goes really well with whole wheat flour. If you want you can substitute 50% of jaggery powder with caster sugar or even brown sugar.
To replace eggs in this recipe, the best substitute is yogurt or homemade dahi. When eggs are replaced with dahi, you get the perfect tender moist crumb which is achieved with eggs. In this eggless aata jaggery brownies, you can either use regular homemade dahi (do not hang and remove water from it) or store brought yogurt. Both of them works well.
Coffee always enhances flavor, especially when it is used with chocolate! These brownies go up a notch when I added half an espresso shot. It is simply a tablespoon of hot water when added with 1 teaspoon of this coffee powder. It gives a good, intense flavor to these eggless aata jaggery brownies and even cuts the atta flavor in there. If you want to skip this, you can even add a tablespoon of hot water instead.
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR OR ATTA
Whole wheat flour is heavier than all-purpose flour which we generally use in baking. It is ironic but how this flour is heavy but when we eat this eggless aata jaggery brownies, we feel light! This flour makes the baked goods dense but when we incorporate air properly, that’s not the case. This flour tends to make things dried out but as we are putting a lot of moisture, it all balances out.
BAKING POWDER AND BAKING SODA
I have used both baking powder and soda in this eggless aata jaggery brownie . Baking soda will react with the yogurt or homemade dahi and baking powder would react to the rest of the liquid in this recipe of eggless aata jaggery brownie. I use this baking powder and this baking soda.
EQUIPMENT USED FOR MAKING EGGLESS BROWNIE
The kind of equipment you use when you’re baking makes a huge difference to the end result! I would recommend you to use good quality mixing bowls and other equipment so that your eggless brownies come out delicious!
To mix all my ingredients together in, I’m using Borosil’s 100% Borosilicate Glass Bowl which is microwave and oven safe, plus the bowls are super easy to clean and handle, which makes my baking process totally hassle free!
And finally, to bake my brownies I have used a microwave safe square glass bowl, this one is quite similar to the one I have used.
