Healthy Brownies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by dahlia

This recipe is adapted from "The Omega Diet," which is an excellent book on nutrition. These brownies don't taste "lowfat" or "healthy," yet they have essential fatty acids from the canola oil and walnuts. I have made these in an 8x8 pan, by simply cooking the brownies for a slightly shorter time. I usually use a little less than 1/2 c. of flour to make the brownies fudgier. Brownies without the guilt!

Not a bad alternative to a less healthy option. Very brownie-like and a good way to satisfy a sweet tooth. Just lacks the substance of a "real" brownie.
