Heart Healthy, Whole-Grain Brownies
Finding a good, healthy brownie recipe is surprisingly hard to come by. Usually, when a recipe says “healthy” it tastes that way too, and brownie recipes are no exception. In honor of Valentine’s Day this week, I decided to make some brownies for my husband. He definitely loves his sweets so if I can make something that is also good for him, I’m all over it.
This recipe uses whole-grain flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil instead of butter, less sugar, and still has the consistency and taste of “pure-bred” brownies. To say these brownies are heart healthy may be taking it a bit overboard, although when compared to traditional brownies, they are actually pretty good for you. Plus, they are full of fiber, protein, and healthy fats; not stuff usually found in baked-goods.
Too good to be true? Try them for yourself. Now, you tell me.
