‘Healthy’ Brownies (and embarrassing story)

Treat day?

I have just the thing…

But first, an embarrassing story…now since my son doesn’t read my emails, I can tell you this.

Once I made ‘healthy’ brownies, but they were of the black bean variety.We had dinner, chased it with a delicious and

healthy black bean brownie and then we went to a movie.

Now it’s no mystery the effect that beans have on one’s digestive system and the body can recognize beans even when

disguised in brownies 😉

Let me tell you that Sam and I were happy when the movie was over so we could get home to our own bathroom…

TMI? Well, sorry about that, but it gives me the opportunity to provide you with an alternative delicious brownie recipe (see below).

This one comes from my friend Yuri and his wife Amy and their new “Fast Fat Burning Meals” cookbook.
