Even though I made the recipe up from scratch, somehow, I still couldn’t tell they weren’t chocolate.
Not chocolate? Whoever heard of a brownie that wasn’t made with chocolate? Not me, at least, until very recently, when I decided to try giving it up. Not exactly my idea of fun!
Chocolate didn’t get the boot because of Lent, or because it’s inherently, sinfully, bad for me (like the mayor in one of my favorite movies, Chocolat would think,) but simply because it is a bean. A seed, really. But, for the sake of my wellbeing, that was enough of a reason.
However. That was NOT enough of a reason not to have fudgey brownies. We all got to have a little sanity, people, and this stuff does it for me!
