My kids go to an amazing progressive school and one teacher is gluten-free and the other is gluten-free vegan. Having so many dietary restrictions makes it hard to treat yourself to dessert. So, I wanted to make them brownies that are just as good as the real thing and just as rich, chocolatey and decadent. What I came up with so happen to be somewhat healthy too! One bite and you can barely tell the difference from my brownie and the standard brownie in taste but you will feel much better eating this one! It was a hit with the teachers, my kids and even, my hard to please (I like the real stuff) husband!
