Rich Chocolatey Fudge Brownies

Total Time

These brownies are so incredibly moist and rich but they still have little to no fat. Whenever I make them at my house, they're usually gone within a day or two. They can be cooked in almost any metal pan as long as the batter doesn't go any higher than 2/3s of the way up the sides but I usually use a 9 x 13 pan.They're great alone but taste even better reheated in the microwave for a few seconds with a dollop of whipped cream on the side.

Delicious! I subbed all the sugar by 2 2 1/2 tsp of stevia powder, mixed into the flour (I used whole wheat). Used the cinnamon an paprika with dark chocolate chips. I'd never used paprika in a brownie recipe before... it adds an interesting dimension!!! Thanks for sharing :)
