Not too Chocolaty Brownies

I wanted to make some brownies for my family, but I realized after starting that I did not have enough cocoa powder. I decided to forge ahead and actually I like the result.

I  used a recipe called ‘Quick and Easy Brownies’; although ironically the first line states that these will take 45 mins to make. My husband is not a huge fan of chocolate so this hybrid blondie/brownie was right up his alley.

It calls for 1/2 cup of cocoa and I used slightly less than half that amount (about 1/4 cup). We liked them this way and the next time I try this I think I will add a little bit of strong coffee to the batter.
