“I have been on a quest for good, healthy brownies but always find something wrong: too dry, don't rise enough, too cake-like, etc. - Just not the perfect brownie. Through trial and error, tweaking and substituting, I have finally invented, what I believe to be, the perfect brownie. I'm diabetic and these I can eat.”
16 Brownies
