Healthy Fudgy Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by J-Lynn

With wheat germ and oatmeal, I wasn't sure how good these would be... but they are one of the best chocolatey brownie recipes I've tasted outside of a box mix!! I got the recipe off and wanted to save it here.

I should have read the reviews first. The brownies taste very good, but indeed I had problems with them being crumbly. I made a couple of substitutions: coconut oil instead of butter, and 1/4 cup hemp powder instead of powdered milk. If I make this again, I will add a tbsp or 2 of liquid I think to increase moisture.
