Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day like a green beer at noon. At least, disinfection that’s what it meant in college. Now that I’m “all grownup” drinking green beer, discount especially before noon, is “frowned upon”. Yet, I have to do something to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, and nothing is more Irish, or more celebratory, than Guinness.
I happen to absolutely love Guinness. (We drank quite a few on a cruise we recently took to the Bahamas. I think all of the bartenders on the ship came to know us as the Guinness Couple.) You may have noticed my Guinness Mustard a few weeks ago. Now, it’s Guinness Brownies. Ah, Guinness Brownies. They are moist and a little malty, super rich and very chocolatey. I love them so.
No better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a batch of these brownies. Trust me.
(Oh yeah – I used whole wheat pastry flour. Makes them “healthy” right?)
