Recipe by Jennika

This is a recipe that is lower in fat than most brownie recipes yet still tastes VERY good. This is the only brownie recipe I use in my home. It is easy to make and will satisfy your brownie craving!

These were unexpected winners. Surprised at how moist (but not gooey) these were without shortening. I mixed the wet ingredients in blender then added this to the dry in the stand mixer. So quick to make. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and substituted dried mixed berries for the nuts. Don't know how I'll keep my mitts off these for the rest of the day.
