Jessica Seinfeld Healthy Brownies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kiwiwife

These are the HEALTHY brownies from Jessica Seinfeld's new book, Deceptively Delicious. She made them on Oprah last week and they looked great. The only change here is I made them with a mixture of wheat & white flour instead of oat flour and I used butter instead of trans fat free margarine as the original recipe calls for because that's what I have in my kitchen! To puree veggies, I used microwave then ran through the food processer. I would guess about 1 1/4 cups of carrots made the 1/2 cup puree and almost a whole bag of pre-washed baby spinach for the spinach puree. They are not overly sweet OR chocolatey but for being healthy, they are not bad! My 11 year old just came in and said YUM, BROWNIES!

I must warn you no offense to Jessica but this recipe was terrible. It was like biting in to chocolate covered charred spinach. They lacked any resemblance to the brownies we know and love. However I have her book and some of her other recipes are delicious.
