These are fudgy, if unusual brownies. Not super sweet, but sweet enough. Feel free to substitute any kind of nuts for the almonds -- the original recipe called for walnuts. Loosely based on a recipe from "What Every Pregnant Woman Should Know" by Gail Sforza Brewer, modified for a somewhat diabetic diet.
