This recipe was developed for a challenge to make unusual cornbread. I've gone wheat-free, so used cocoa where I would have used flour and milled flaxseed/water for the fat. Added chocolate chips and walnuts, plus a little cinnamon and a dash of cayenne 'cause I'm crazy like that. Compared to 'real' brownies, 'real' wins, but they are pretty good compared to flaxseed muffins. Especially good warmed a little in the microwave with some greek yogurt or fruit.
