(disclaimer-Normally i try to make a recipe exactly as written so my up front apologies for all thes substitutions - i'm trying to limit grocery store to 1x per week and keep the food budget LOW.) The brownies were Great! I substituted agave syrup for sugar (and used about 1/3 cup, it is sweet!) and onlyh ad 1/2 cup flour so used almond meal and spelt flour equally to make up the difference. Otherwise, EXACTLY thes same (;
