Passover Brownies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Need a chocolate fix during the holidays? Though I'm not Jewish, this recipe looked intriguing to me so I'm saving it as a gift the next time I'm invited to a Seder. (Yes, in my kitchen it would not be Kosher, but my friends are not that religious.) The combination of fruits --raisins, bananas and applesauce -- should give these a very moist brownie like texture.

I wouldn't rate this one star - it was terrible. Used recipe omitting raisins, baked for 30 minutes. Edges were dried out and rest was mush. Tasted terrible. Don't waste your time or money!
