Recipe by Olha
The secret to the incredible texture of these brownies is the prune puree. The prune puree also provides a rich, creamy texture. You'll swear it tastes like there's butter in this recipe, but there isn't. Good brownies and since they are fat free I decided to frost them with a little bit of butter-frosting. Instead of honey in the cake, I used 3/4 cup of pure maple syrup and the rest honey. I'm a Canadian what can I say, maple syrup for me all the way!
