Butterscotch Brownies

I love brownies.  Sometimes nothing is better than a chocolaty, fudgie brownie.  Typing this out right now makes me want to make some....I can't decide if that's a bad thing or not.  Sometimes, a treat out of the ordinary is called for, and these are a great alternative for a non-chocolate brownie.  They are rich, chewy and delicious.  Batter is ready in under 5 minutes and then they bake quickly.  Perfect treat if you need one extremely quickly. 

any takers??
I really need to find some taste testers out here.  I do have a couple of friends and family, and I'm sure it will take me a while to find some.  But for now the people that work in the sales office in my building are loving me - I keep bringing them treats and they keep telling me that I'm their favorite tenant. 

Butterscotch Brownies
makes 18 small bars
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup packed brown sugar (if you use light brown sugar they will be lighter - I used dark)
1 egg
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
optional - 1/2 cup nuts, chocolate chips, favorite add-in
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 8x8x2" pan with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large bowl, blend sugar and oil together.  Add in egg.  Add in flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.  Add in vanilla extract and add-ins if using.  Mix until combined. 
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.  Do not over bake! Let cool for 15 minutes and then but into squares.
