    Kiwiwife's Note:

    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.

      I really, really wish I could say I liked these. The idea is wonderful, and the ingredients are so healthy. However, the veggie (especially spinach) taste came over way too strongly. From all of the rave reviews, I expected that the veggies would be hard to detect, but (at least in my batch, which contained exactly what the recipe suggested) they were very easy to taste. Oh well...

      I loved the idea of this recipe as I'm a total brownie addict, however I had to experiment a bit to get it right. When making these brownies I usually use buckwheat flour instead of oat flour, and I add a tablespoon or two of almond meal as well. I also add a tablespoon of treacle or molasses, and a tablespoon of skim sweetened condensed milk (you could also use applesauce). I find that adding raspberries ups the sweetness factor along with the treacle and sweetened condensed milk. I have also included half a cup of pureed black beans on a few occasions and that works really well too, and is an extra fibre boost. Finally, remember to refrigerate overnight and in the morning you will have moist, dense, HEALTHY brownies waiting!
