SHARE THIS POST

These eggless chocolate, whole wheat, oats and pecan squares – quite a mouthful- are great for those times when you are craving for a sweet treat. It is not full of cartloads of sugar and butter. And the addition of whole wheat flour and oats makes it wholesome too!


The days are flying by too fast. Wasn’t it the start of the new year just a few days ago! And now, the first month is almost over. A close inspection in the garden also revealed a few shoots from my spring bulbs poking out from the soil. Although the temperature as I write this is almost zero deg C, these signs of new life are truly heartening. And yes, the friendly robin who made a pitstop on our garden fence as I was pottering around was the icing on the cake. I almost went to fetch the camera, but rightly decided not to move and enjoy the moment instead. It definitely perked me up; a robin always has that effect on me!


Anyway, coming back to this chocolate treat, it is quite easy to put together and tastes great too. It is moist, fudgy and the nuts give a lovely bite. If you are looking for a fuss free and guilt free indulgence, do give this a try!

This recipe is also from the notebook and was tried and tested by many when it was first published all those years ago. Glad to have the recipe to share with all of you.
