Amazingly Easy Brownies

Recipe by Kree6528

This is a delicious brownie recipe I found on the IBS message boards. It's so simple to throw together, and you would never guess that it's low-fat and dairy-free! I like the brownies best when they're cool. Yum! They were originally called "Mom's Best Brownies", but I renamed them because I didn't want to imply that this was my mom's recipe!

I would definitely make these brownies again. The brownies are slightly different from a "typical" brownie. The texture of the brownies reminded me of a cross between a cake and brownie. The brownies were less dense and had the moistness of a cake. I will definitely make these again and try the peanut butter suggestion.
