You can have brownies!

I’m a chocolate girl if ever there was one. So how do I keep it healthy? Here’s 3 EASY ways. For any of these recipes, start with an organic or gluten free box mix. Bob’s Red Mill is a good one.

Option 1 – Easy fix) Use applesauce in place of the oil ingredient (exact same volume)

Option 2 – High Fiber) Mix the box with a 16 oz can of pumpkin puree (like you put in pumpkin pie) in

Option 3 – High Protein) Mix the box with a 16 oz can of pureed black beans. Seriously!

you’ve never had chocolate so healthy!

    I LOVE these tips. Brownies are my all time favourite indulgence and you just made them guilt free. Going to try all 3 options! 🙂

    These look delicious. I love anything that uses applesauce instead of oil. That being said I’d love to chat about Galaxy Granola…..see if you’d be interested in becoming part of their Fruit Not Fat Club. 🙂
