Is it possible for a brownie to be "healthy"? Doug and I are trying to eat a little healthier, but we had a "hankering" for some brownies. I came across this recipe here and it turned out pretty good... it met out needs anyway. :) We've just had to exercise a lot of self control in not having too many! :)
