The Very Best Healthy Brownies You Will Ever Taste

I have been searching for a healthy alternative to store-bought Fiber One 100 calorie brownies and I have finally found it! These are more of a cake-like, lighter brownie than the very dense and chewy black bean brownies that are so popular. To me, they taste better than and have the same texture as a regular, full-fat brownie, but have 1/2 the calories coming in at just 90 calories per bar.

This is an original recipe that you will not find anywhere else. Please give it a try! If you do not find that these are the very best fat-free brownies, I will eat them for you! ;)
