This recipe stuck out to me because I am trying to live a sugar free life. However I would not recommend this recipe to anyone. The texture was like twice eaten food, and the sweet flavor of the apple juice and the bananas is clearly absent; because of this you get a bitter awful unsweetened cocoa flavor. It left me and my family disgusted and wanting a real brownie!
