(No Cholesterol, Less "Bad" Fats and More "Good" Fats) If you want "real" Brownies, this is not for you. You need all the fats and cholesterol to get those. This is a version of "Brownies" I came up with for my brownie loving hubby. He has heart problems and I am trying to come up with recipes he likes but are better for his heart. I don't qualify as a "Brownie Critic" as I am not the brownie lover in the house but I even like these. Hubby really liked them (thankfully!) and our 91 year old neighbor even thought they were very good and I am sure she has tasted alot of brownies over the years! PLEASE NOTE - I MADE THESE IN MY TOASTER OVEN. These would be fairly simple for children to make - with an adult supervising the oven. Servings depends on the size you cut them...smaller or bigger.
