Quick, easy, delicious but not low cal Chocolate Mocha Passover Brownies

The batter

Very low tech. You mix everything with a large spoon.


I have mixed feelings about posting this recipe, not that it isn’t yummy–these brownies deliver in the taste department and they are easy; you can put them together in less time than it would take to drive to a bakery, find parking and stand in line to pay. Baking your own Passover brownies will save you lots money and you’ll  enjoy a better brownie than store bought. If you’re looking to occupy the kids over Hol HaMoed, baking is a great project. This recipe is so easy that even a five year old could put it together , with minimal  supervision–but they are “F.” not naughty but FATTENING.
I wish I could fix that  . For now, that is until the Messiah arrives and/or the geniuses in food technology discover how to zap the calories out of   oil and walnuts. eat these in small doses–one small square at a time.

  1. These sound and look yummy. Good thing I’m vegan so I’m not even tempted to make them. Though I would not refuse an offer of a taste at somebody else’s house. Vegan at home. Shabbat shalom, Judy
