I was at an all day nutrition and spa seminar a couple of months ago. The organizers decided to have all of us bring a pot luck dish to share over lunch (an idea I highly recommend for all day events). One lady brought these amazing and healthy brownies which everyone loved. Well I finally found the recipe and thought I would share it with my readers. Not only will these brownies be a family favourite but they are full of protein and super low in sugar. Enjoy!
