 Dear Missy,

I wanted to make the brainy brownies, but was wondering if I could use a box mix instead of completely from scratch???..I have plenty of box mixes that I wanted to use up, and also didn't have all of the other ingredients on hand...Thank you so much for any help! –Staci

Dear Staci, 

You certainly can! Here's the recipe right out of book #1. 

Enjoy in good health!


Quick Fix to Store-Bought Brownie Mix

If you don’t have time for the scratch version, this doctored-up packaged brownie mix fits some great nutrients in. Simply replace half of the oil and all the water with nutrient-rich Purple Puree and replace some of the dry mix with wheat germ. No one I’ve asked, kids or adults, could tell the difference between these and the regular version.

1/2 cup wheat germ, unsweetened
1 box (about 21 ounces) brownie mix (preferably without hydrogenated oils)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup Purple Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #1)
1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter or coat with cooking spray a 13-by- 9-inch or 8-inch square baking pan.

Measure and discard (or save for future use) 1/2 cup of the dry packaged brownie mix and replace with 1/2 cup of wheat germ. Mix together with the eggs, oil, and Purple Puree until well blended. 

Follow package directions for baking time, depending on size of baking dish used.
