My daughter bought me some vintage cookbooks and I love looking through them for new and unusual recipes as well as treasured favorites. This recipe came from the Better Homes and Gardens Heritage Cookbook, printed in 1978. It's a wonderful book full of history and stories as well as great recipes! These delicious brownies are rich with the added flavor of maple syrup!

Most definitely great tasting brownies! And, I'm one of those who think that if you're gonna use maple syrup, you really want to use a quality, pure kind! I did opt out of the powdered sugar, but otherwise followed your recipe right on down! A wonderful change from what I usually make! Thanks for sharing the recipe! {Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe}

My son really liked these brownies. He give this recipe 10 stars. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar. I used a good quality of maple syrup and the brownies have a big taste of maple syrup. It's not subtle. I omitted the walnuts. Thanks Loof :) Made for PRMR tag game
