Makes 12-14 slices
Preparation time 15 mins
Cooking time 15 mins


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 spoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon milled flaxseed 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup cherries de seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup almond flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  4 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 180 C. Mix the milk and lemon juice and let it sit for at least 5 minutes until the milk separates and you get butter milk. In a bowl beat the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the rest of the wet ingredients including the butter milk. Mix in the dry ingredients except for the almond flakes and start folding until you get a sticky and thick batter. Add the chopped cherries and give it a last mix.Take a medium sized square brownie baking tray which is about 1/1.5 inches thick. Either spray or brush some vegetable oil and pour the batter.Tap the tray in the counter a few time so that the batter is evenly spread out.Evenly sprinkle the almond flakes on the top and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Before getting it out of the tray, let it cool down completely. After, it has cooled down cut them into squares and enjoy!!
