oreo brownies

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!!!!! this recipe is a keeper.
you wanna know why? because it is MY kind of recipe. easy to prepare, easy to make. yummy to the tummy...okay, maaayyyybe yummy to the tummy doesn't sound quite right, but...nevertheless...that's what i think this pan of goodness is.

early this morning, i was looking for a recipe that is easy enough for me to bake. because i want to bring some to the class tomorrow. you know, my goal, is to make everyone fat  err..i mean "healthy" by the end of the semester. ngeeee.... hehehahaha!! so i came across this recipe from
i wasn't too convinced because...come on, how can something SO easy to make be SO yummy, right? i decided to give it a go...and true enough. i was not disappointed. i took a slice, still warm from the pan...(i mean, who WAITS for their brownies to cool anyway? right???) and it was gone within seconds.  i gave some to a friend and made a second batch for class tomorrow. everybody already at the edge of their seats waiting for the recipe? huh? huh? huh? yes??? no???... malu nak mengakulah tu! okay, let's go!!
you will need:
½ cup (125ml) vegetable oil
1 cup (200g) sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon baking powder
cup (40g) cocoa powder 
¼ tsp salt
½ cup (64g) flour
aaaaandddd...the star of this recipe 15-20 oreos crushed.*

the how to:
1)  preheat the oven to 170°C

2)  mix oil and sugar til well blended.

3)  in goes the eggs and vanilla, stir until just blended.

4)  in another bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients.

5)  stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

6)  crush the oreos and stir in ¾  of them into the mixture.

7)  pour batter into a greased 9x9 square pan. i just lined mine with parchment paper.

8)  sprinkle the remaining broken oreo bits over the top of the brownie batter.

9)  bake for 20 minutes or until the sides start to pull away from the pan.

10) cool completely before devouring them straight from the pan  cutting them. :-p

*okay, i know the recipe calls for 15-20 oreo cookies. i only used 14. they were just nice...okay, okay...that was NOT the reason why. the reason why is, there are only 14 oreo cookies in the standard Malaysian pack. so... i was not game on opening another pack of oreos just to get that other one oreo cookie. okay tak? okaylah tu! hehehe...

what i think about these brownies? i LOVE them. they are not too sweet and they are chewy and they make me happy because they are easy to make and i love them and i will make them again because i love them....have i told you how much i love these?? well, i'll tell you one more time. i love these brownies!! love love love love love!!! there.

go on now, you know you wanna rush out to get yourselves a pack of oreos. go on. and be sure to let me know how yours turn out, okay?

come back now! :-)

thank you for this wonderful recipe.
