Happy birthday to my sweet little nephew. I got to celebrate his 2nd birthday this weekend with him. And I am meeting him in person for the first time. Chocolate flavor is his favorite. So double chocolate brownies to celebrate the occasion.
These brownies are as healthy as it can get. There isn't any butter in it and made with multi-grain flour. There no compromise on the taste though. My kids love this. Kids will never know the difference. :o) I have made this several times now. Every time it's been a hit with kids and adults.
