What to do?
When you end up with a kitchen failure, there are usually two logical next-steps. One, you decide that whatever you made is beyond saving and throw it in the trash, or, two, you think long and hard about an ingenious way to save the food.
Luckily, the brownies I made were eligible for the latter.
My solution happened to be using the super thin brownies as the “bread” part of a sandwich. I can’t say I had super high expectations, but the results blew me away. As it turns out, brownies made into a sandwich with a strawberry yogurt filling beat plain old brownies by a long shot! The whole batch was gone in less than a day.
Thank you, kitchen failure.
Chocolate Strawberry Brownie Sandwiches
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup special dark cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp coffee granules
- 3/4 cup yogurt (plain or vanilla)
- 1/2 cup date paste
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 5 oz (1/2 cup) strawberry yogurt (I used Fage)
- 2-3 strawberries, chopped (optional)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp flour
To make filling, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix to combine. When brownies have cooled, slice into 9 or 16 squares (depending on the size you want). Spread a thick layer of filling on top of one brownie and top with another. Continue until all brownies have been used. Store in fridge until serving time.
