Hey y'all. So one of my LOVES is finding healthy swaps for sweet treats. I have a HUGE sweet tooth! Like I could eat chocolate all day and never eat a meal. But isn't that most girls? ;) Brownies are also the hubs favorite dessert! I feel bad when I don't bake them for him enough. But I also don't want all the junk in our house! Soooo I have been on the search for a healthy brownie recipe! And of course, my FAVORITE health & nutrition blogger did it again. I am excited to share this recipe, I made a couple of swaps to hers.
