I have tried many a brownie, especially of the low-carb kind from keto brownies to the high-carb kind gluten-free brownies and everything in between. I wasn’t impressed. They were either too dry, too crumbly, too wet, or just plain ‘pretending’ to be a brownie. My brownie mission became akin to Goldilocks and the three bears, it had to be just right.
My kids, my sister’s kids, and my friend’s kids are usually my hardest and most preferred critics. When it comes to brownies, donuts, cookies, you know – all the stuff they love they are not shy in telling me the truth. So, when they tried my brownies and asked for more 5 seconds later (haha slow down little Johnny!) I knew I was onto a winner. It also helps to have a Canadian husband, as I didn’t grow up with brownies per se in Australia and he gives them 20 out of 10! Hooray, real brownie success without the junk and sugar spikes. I won’t call a brownie ‘healthy,’ but I will call it a definite upgrade on the traditional brownies. These are likely the healthiest version you will find without compromise on your favorite brownie texture and flavor.
