Oh my guys…these are good, really good…and they have some crazy ingredients. They are moist, chocolatey, and anything and everything you could want from a brownie! They are also gluten and flour free if those are things you are trying to avoid!
I was skeptical when I first read this recipe, I was even more reluctant whenever I was mixing these up. But after tasting them, I am a big fan. I first tried these out on the husband, not mentioning that they were healthy or had any weird ingredients, and he loved them. Later that night, I served them to my parents, who had absolutely no idea that they were any different than regular brownies. Even the two year old enjoyed them mixed into her bowl of ice cream! Give these a try if you are looking for a healthier dessert, or are just in the mood to try something different!
