Not So Adelle Davis... Wheat Germ Brownies

Starting with inspiration from Adelle Davis, but taking liberties....


1/4 c. corn oil
1 T molasses
7/8 c. sugar
1/2 c.chopped macadamia nuts (we were out of walnuts)
1 1/2 c. Genisoy Ultra XT Vanilla Soy Protein Shake Mix (from Wegman's)
(What good is a "Very Important" ingredient my husband can't eat???)
3 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/4 c. toasted wheat germ (then put through the spice grinder, measured after)
1/4 t salt
1/2 t baking powder (Yes, Mom. With Aluminium. Next Time....)
1/2 c. Hershey's Cocoa (Unsweetened, for Baking)
1/2 c. Chocolate Chips (Sunspire, grain sweetened)

8" pan 20-30-min @ 350 degrees (oiled pan first)
(But, I don't think it will burn easily, although it will dry out if you leave it in too long. There should be no dairy in this.)

After bringing it out of the oven, I smeared chocolate icing on top. Just regular cake frosting. (Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy. It might have dairy, but none is officially listed, so it would be small quantities.) Then, I topped this with sprinkles for the kids.

Ok, so the downside is I have no idea if this will work, but I figure with the chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, and frosting on top, what can possibly go wrong??? If there are no further posts, you can presume it's not horrible and not awesome. Either extreme would probably warrant a followup.
